It’s Thanksgiving weekend, so if you’ve got some time to chill out this weekend, especially if you can’t spend time with your loved ones, here are a few of my suggestions of what to watch on Disney+.
This weeks biggest addition is the modern retelling of the classic novel, “Black Beauty”. The film follows Black Beauty, a wild horse born free in the American West. Rounded up and taken away from her family, Beauty is brought to Birtwick Stables where she meets a spirited teenage girl, Jo Green. Beauty and Jo forge an unbreakable bond that carries Beauty through the different chapters, challenges, and adventures of her life. It’s a lovely family friendly movie that is very enjoyable.

The Mandalorian – Chapter 13
If you haven’t gotten round to watch this episode yet, this should without doubt be your top priority because it’s easily one of the best episodes of Star Wars: The Mandalorian. With Ahsoka Tano making her live-action debut and lots of loose ends connecting up with the events of both the animated series, “The Clone Wars” and “Rebels”. This is not far off a live-action episode of “Rebels”.

Taylor Swift – Folklore – long pond studio sessions
Disney had a surprise pre-Thanksgiving release with Taylor Swift performing her “lockdown” album “Folklore” for the first time with her producers in a log cabin in upstate New York. She performs 17 tracks from the album in a safe environment, with them sitting around a campfire in the garden discussing how they made the album. For Taylor Swift fans, this is a must watch.

In Disney+’s holiday comedy “Noelle,” Kris Kringle’s daughter is full of Christmas spirit and holiday fun, but wishes she could do something “important” like her beloved brother Nick, who will take over for their father this Christmas. When Nick is about to crumble like a gingerbread cookie from all the pressure, Noelle suggests he take a break and get away…but when he doesn’t return, Noelle must find her brother and bring him back in time to save Christmas.
When Disney+ officially launched last year, “Noelle”, was one of the first Disney+ Originals released and unfortunately the film was held back until this month for Europeans, along with those in Latin America. So if you only signed up for Disney+ this year, check out this Christmas movie, or are just in the mood for a Christmas movie, “Noelle” is a good option.
