If you thought that this streaming service was only to be enjoyed by children, you are mistaken, my friend. Because there is a whole HEAP of movies on Disney+ for absolutely everyone to enjoy.

Here are 30 unreal movies on Disney+ to inspire you're binge-viewing this weekend.

The Jungle Book (2016)

There have been a few remakes of Disney animated classics in the last few years. And this one is simply epic, packed with feel-good moments and tense action scenes.

The Avengers (all movies)

Most of the movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe now have a home in Disney+. Enjoy the epicness of massive blockbusters like Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame over and over again.

Guardians of the Galaxy

Want your fix of sci-fi action as well and brilliant comedy? Well, both Guardians of the Galaxy movies are on Disney+. It has as much sci-fi thrill as The Avengers, but with that extra helping of comedy.

Pirates of the Caribbean

You will also find all five movies in the franchise on Disney+. That sounds like a glorious day of binge viewing the adventures of Jack Sparrow to us.


Angelina Jolie plays an unbelievably convincing evil creature, giving us our fix of both magic and spook in an enchanting twist on Sleeping Beauty.

The Incredibles

A Pixar classic. And luckily, the sequel is also on the streaming platform! In terms of movies that are thoroughly enjoyable for people of all ages, this one is a great shout.

Freaky Friday

Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis switch bodies and are forced to live each other's lives? Sign me up!


This one is a beautiful emotional rollercoaster, following an old man as he journeys to the place he and his late wife always dreamed about. Tissues at the ready here, folks.


Frozen is a favourite for many, given its witty humour, touching storyline and fantastic music. Well, Tangled should not be overlooked in the regard. Following Rapunzel, it's a wholesome story that will melt even the coldest of hearts.

Star Wars

Us Star Wars fans are in for a treat with Disney+. Because A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith, The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi are all there.

Plus, there are two Disney+ original series: Mandalorian and The Clone Wars.

Diana: In Her Own Words

With loads of amazing National Geographic content housed on Disney+, we get to watch fascinating features such as Diana: In Her Own Words, a documentary that Diana narrates herself.

10 Things I Hate About You

There is no shortage of rom-com goodness on Disney+. And everyone knows that 10 Things I Hate About You is up there with the best of the best.

X-Men (all movies)

The exciting superhero content doesn't stop at The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy. Because the X-Men are also here.

Start at 2000's X-Men and make your way through X2, X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The Wolverine and X-Men: Days of Future Past. Then, you can get nostalgic with five seasons of the X-Men animated series.

The Sound Of Music

Do we even need to explain why this is a wonderful choice of movie? Join Julie Andrews and the Von Trapp Children on a joyous and wholesome musical journey.

Mrs Doubtfire

This has to be one of Robin Williams' funniest movies. He plays a divorced actor who disguises himself as a Scottish housekeeper in order to spend more time with his children. As you can imagine, it's chaotic.

Dr Dolittle

While Robin Williams dressing as an elderly housekeeper is hilarious, so is Eddie Murphy discovering he has the ability to talk to animals.

Both Dr Dolittle and Dr Dolittle 2 are on Disney+.

Sister Act

While we're on the subject of chaotic hilarity, we may as well let you know that Sister Act and Sister Act 2 are on Disney+. Whoopi Goldberg has to go into witness protection and pretend to be a nun and it's absolute gold.

Thor (all movies)

The god of thunder is here to provide us with all of the mystical, inter-galactic action we need. Thor, Thor: God of Thunder and Thor: Ragnarok are all available to binge one after the other.

Captain Marvel

The Marvel QUEEN who started it all. Not only is it an action-packed sci-fi banger, but it also gives us the amazing back story to how The Avengers started!

Aladdin (2019)

Will Smith as The Genie in Dinsey's Aladdin live-action remake was always going to be a recipe for magic.

Lady and the Tramp

Yes, we're talking about the original movie from 1955. But we are also talking about the adorable remake, which is exclusive to Disney+.

It's just as magical as the 1955 version, but with that added touch of ADORABLENESS!

The Lion King

In 2019, we were also blessed with a live-action version of The Lion King, and we enjoyed every minute. With a star-studded cast featuring Donald Glover, James Earl Jones, Seth Rogan and yes, even Beyoncé, it was bound to be a roaring success.

Cool Runnings

This 1993 flick follows a Jamaican bobsled team as they fight against the odds to win big at the Olympics. It's actually based on a true story, which makes it all that more enjoyable.

The Chronicles of Narnia

Two of the movies in this series, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian are both available to watch on Disney+. With a fantastic mix of action, fantasy and humour, the whole family will enjoy these movies.

High School Musical

Don't lie! We know this is your guilty pleasure. Because it's also ours. And all three movies are available on Disney+. We have one word: WILDCATS!

Plus, there is also the brand new High School Musical: The Series, another great Disney+ exclusive.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Anyone who grew up in the 80s will be more than familiar with this movie, so it's the ultimate throwback to enjoy this weekend, whether it's with the kids, the other half or both!

Oz the Great and Powerful

This is Oz like you've never seen it before. It somewhat acts as a prequel to the 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz. Oscar Diggs escapes the circus and finds himself in Oz. He meets the witch Theodora, who assumes he is a wizard.


Damn, Pixar. Why do you keep making us cry? Coco sees a young Miguel pursue his love of singing. When he accidentally stumbles into the land of the dead, he learns about his great-great-grandfather who was a legendary singer.

Wreck it Ralph

This Pixar flick follows Ralph, a video game character who is sick of being the bad guy. On his journey, he wreaks havoc for everyone in the arcade. You can watch Wreck It Ralph and its sequel Ralph Breaks the Internet as much as you like on Disney+.

Into the Woods

As far as star-studded casts go, this one is stellar, featuring big names like Anna Kendrick, Emily Blunt, Johnny Depp, Chris Pine, James Corden, Christine Baranski and the one and only Meryl Streep.

Get your fix of musical magic with this enchanting film that incorporates all of our favourite fairytales into one.

And that is just a taste of what's available on Disney+. To find out how to experience all of this cinematic glory, as well as a heap of amazing series, head here or visit
