Lots of movies will be streaming on Disney Plus when it launches in November. But which ones are the best? Here are our picks for the top 30 best movies.
If you noticed that movies and television shows from Disney and Marvel have been disappearing from Netflix and other streaming services, you’re not alone. Disney has been taking back all their content in preparation for the launch of their own streaming service, Disney Plus.
Well, now the launch is almost here. They will be releasing a ton of content on Nov. 12 and then steadily bringing out more as time goes on. But with all the movies and TV shows they’ve made, how do you know what to watch first?
There will be tons of new content as well as some of their classic movies. So no matter whether you’re looking for new stuff like Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader’s new Christmas movie or old classics like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Sleeping Beauty, there is something for everyone to watch come November.
But it’s not just the classic Disney content that we all know and love. Remember, Marvel and Star Wars are part of Disney now too. The streaming service is offering a few of the Marvel superhero movies including Iron Man (We’re all pretending Tony is alive, right?) as well as almost all of the Star Wars movies, new and old (yes, that includes the prequels).
No matter the mood you’re in or the genre you like, Disney Plus streaming something you’ll like. If you need help picking the best movies out of all the content available, you came to the right place.
Here (in no particular order) are the 30 best movies to watch on Disney Plus on launch day!
If you’re in the mood for a classic that’s more visual than a full complete story, Fantasia is where it’s at! The film is a collection of shorts all combined to make a masterpiece for the eyes.
The movie begins with a live-action scene of an orchestra gathering in front of a blue background and tuning their instruments. The program then begins and moves into The Nutcracker Suite. The music from the ballet is played over images of the seasons changing and then fairies, fish, flowers, mushrooms, and leaves are shown dancing across the screen,
Next is probably the short you’re most familiar with from this film: The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. Mickey Mouse, dressed as the apprentice of the sorcerer, tries some magic for himself. But as you can probably guess, it does not go well.
After that is the Rite of Spring where the history of the Earth is shown with different music played in the background. It starts with the formation of our planet, moves to the birth of the first living creatures, and then goes onto dinosaurs.
This leads to intermission and then different sounds are played to show how sound works. An animated soundtrack character comes on the screen. He first appears as a straight line and then changes shape and color as the sounds change
The Pastoral Symphony follows where centaurs, cupids, and other figures from mythology are shown with Beethoven’s music played over their actions. A festival takes place to honor Bacchus, but Zeus interrupts and creates a storm and directs Vulcan to throw lightning bolts at the people at the festival (never a nice guy).
This is followed up by the Dance of Hours, a humorous short where Madam Upanove and her ostriches, Hyacinth Hippo and her servants, Elephanchine and her elephants, and Ben Ali Gator and his alligators dance across the screen.
The final short is the Night on Bald Mountain where the devil, Chernabog, wakes up and brings out evil spirits from their graves on Bald Mountain. Together, they dance and fly until dawn comes and a group of monks is seen walking into the forest and then into the ruins of a cathedral.
