6. 10 Things I Hate About You

There are many classic Disney movies coming to the service right away. There are also movies that Disney now has the licensing rights to. One of those is 10 Things I Hate About You. It’s a must-watch right away.

The movie is an adaptation of the Shakespeare play The Taming of the Shrew. It stars Julia Stiles, the late Heath Ledger, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Larisa Oleynik. Stiles and Oleynik play two sisters who couldn’t be more different from each other. For one to date, the other must too, which means Gordon-Levitt’s character pays Ledger’s to go on a date with the elder sister.

Of course, as a rom-com, you know that characters will fall in love. There will be trouble when the truth of payment is revealed, but it has to work out in the end, right? Plus, this has an awesome moment of Heath Ledger singing “I Love You, Baby” on the bleachers.

5. High School Musical: The Musical: The Series

All the High School Musical movies will be on Disney Plus on launch day, but there’s something else you need to check out. High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. Yes, that is an awkward title!

The Disney original series isn’t just a recreation of High School Musical. Okay, it sort of is, but it has a fun twist. It follows a group of students that the school the movies were filmed. This school is putting on a production of the first movie, and we get the various relationships, the drama that comes with particular people getting parts, and more.

One thing I hope to see is that the guy who wants to play Sharpay gets the part. C’mon, show us the support to be whoever we want to be!
