Amazon will additionally be premiering its own film, the romantic drama and YA-novel adaptation Chemical Hearts, starring Lili Reinhart and Austin Abrams.

On the television front, Amazon is unveiling a new adventure reality show, World's Toughest Race: Eco Challenge Fiji, wherein 66 international teams race across Fiji, and new seasons of Clifford and Jessy & Nessy.

Also arriving on the platform in August: Amazon Virtual-Con, a first-ever event bringing together talent and creatives from new and upcoming Amazon shows including Utopia, Upload, Truth Seekers and The Boys.
