Easily one of my favourite modern animated movies and sees Moana answer the call of the ocean, taking to the seas to save her people from a terrible curse. The movie features Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as the Demigod Maui and his character really adds some great comedy moments. Moana delivers an awesome soundtrack including “Your Welcome” and “How Far I’ll Go”. This movie rarely has left the top of the trending charts, showing how popular this film is with kids who must be watching this one on repeat a fair few times a week!
2) Frozen 2

After hearing a mysterious voice call out to her, Elsa travels to the enchanted forests and dark seas beyond her kingdom — an adventure that soon turns into a journey of self-discovery.
Pixar’s “Soul” introduces Joe Gardner, who is a middle-school band teacher who gets the chance of a lifetime to play at the best jazz club in town. But one small misstep takes him from the streets of New York City to The Great Before – a fantastical place where new souls get their personalities, quirks and interests before they go to Earth. Determined to return to his life, Joe teams up with a precocious soul, 22, who has never understood the appeal of the human experience. As Joe desperately tries to show 22 what’s great about living, he may just discover the answers to some of life’s most important questions. This is a really enjoyable Pixar movie that has one level for kids and a much deeper level for adults to think about their lives.
This movie was a juggernaut for Disney in the past decade, from the box office, merchandise, music and even on Broadway. When their kingdom becomes trapped in perpetual winter, fearless Anna (Kristen Bell) joins forces with mountaineer Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and his reindeer sidekick to find Anna’s sister, Snow Queen Elsa (Idina Menzel), and break her icy spell.

The biggest new movie to debut on Disney+ in February was “Flora & Ulysses” has made a big splash with viewers this month. When Flora rescues a squirrel she names Ulysses, she is amazed to discover he possesses unique superhero powers, which take them on an adventure of humorous complications that ultimately change Flora’s life–and her outlook–forever. I’d really recommend if you haven’t checked this film out, do so. Check out my review by clicking here.
A teenager finds herself transported to a deep forest setting where a battle between the forces of good and the forces of evil is taking place. She bands together with a rag-tag group characters in order to save their world—and ours. This movie has also been a recent addition to Disney+ and this 20th Century Studios animated movie is well worth checking out. I also watched this movie this past month, since I hadn’t seen it before and was intrigued. So I’m guessing lots of people did the same as me.
9) Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella

At the ball, she falls for handsome Prince Christopher, whose parents, King Maximillian and Queen Constantina, are anxious for him to find a suitable paramour. This version of Cinderella from 1997 was added to Disney+ in February and has been a huge hit for Disney+, pulling in many fans who haven’t seen this movie in a long time.
10) Toy Story
The original Toy Story continues to pull audiences in, over 2 decades later. Led by Woody, Andy’s toys live happily in his room until Andy’s birthday brings Buzz Lightyear onto the scene.
