It’s the first weekend since Disney+ has launched and if you have got completely overwhelmed over the shire amount of content available on the new streaming service and you’re wondering what to watch, here are my top 10 suggestions that you can sit back and enjoy.
This recently released live action retelling of the classic animated movie, Dumbo, is a unknown gem. Many people passed it when it was released in cinemas earlier this year, but sitting at home and enjoying this lovely tale of Dumbo is a great way of killing two hours. It’s a fun, family film that shouldn’t be overlooked.
9) The Legend of the Three Caballeros
This animated series has been lost within the Walt Disney Company for years and has finally been given a proper release. The series follows Donald Duck and his amigos, Jose Carioca and Panchito. Its another hidden gem that hasn’t been given the correct amount of publicity from Disney and if we want to see more Donald Duck adventures, people need to watch it on Disney+. So give an episode a try.
8) High School Musical: The Musical – The Series
This brand new drama series from the Disney Channel is become a guilty pleasure of mine this week, currently there are just two episodes available, with more coming each Friday. I’m loving the teenage drama, the mock-documentary style, which breaks the fourth wall, in addition to a great cast and fantastic music. It’s worth checking out the first episode if you haven’t already.
7) Avengers Endgame
The biggest movie of all time has arrived on Disney+ for launch, as the biggest cast of superheroes return to sort out Thanos after the events of Infinity War (unless you’re in the Netherlands, you’ll need to watch that on Netflix until next year.
6) Gordon Ramsey Uncharted
This was a series I’ve been watching to watch, since I’m a fan of the British chef, but the first episode sees Gordon head to Peru, where he meets a “mad potato scientist,” cooks in a mud oven, and scales a towering cliff face in search of a rare herb. Having access to some great series of National Geographic is a huge benefit for Disney+ and worth checking out that section.
With Frozen 2 hitting theaters over Thanksgiving, this might be a good time to catch up on the events of the original and revisit the story of Elsa, Anna and Olaf. Though if your child has been watching it on repeat ever since Disney+ launched (and someone on our Facebook Group has been having that problem), you might want to “Let It Go”.
This one is a little more random, but its a personal favourite of mine that has some fantastic music and sees Mérida deal with the after effects of her actions, when she accidentally turns her mother and triple brothers into bears. A fun action packed Princess movie with a difference.
This new animated series came to the Disney Channel in the summer and is on my personal watch list. The show follows the adventures of 13-year-old, self-centered Anne Boonchuy who is magically transported to the fictitious world of Amphibia, a rural marshland full of frog-people. With the help of an excitable young frog named Sprig, Anne will transform into a hero and discover the first true friendship of her life.
2) Lady & The Tramp
This live action retelling of the animated classic is a Disney+ Original and can only be seen on the new streaming service, so no need to head to the cinema to watch the latest Disney movie. It’s full of cute dogs and is an adorable family friendly film, that is worth checking out.
1) The Mandalorian
The biggest series on Disney+, the Mandalorian is the first live action Star Wars series and follows a Bounty Hunter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic. The first two episodes are available now and if you like the Star Wars movies, you’ve got to check this series out.
