The Best Movies to Watch on Disney Plus

photo

Have you spent a day, a week, a year of this quarantine digging through Disney+ yet?

The Mouse House's streaming service is headlined by content from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and that galaxy far, far away, plus the latest from Pixar and Nat Geo, but the Disney vault is full of titles you may not know are streaming. (Did you know The Sound of Music is on Disney+? It is!)

To save you the trouble, we explored the nooks and crannies of Disney's streamer and rounded up its best selections -- from Disney+ originals to animated classics, superhero and Star Wars movies and so much more -- that you should press play on pronto.

DISNEY+ ORIGINALS

Lady and the Tramp

The 1955 animated version is on there, too, but give this sweet live-action retelling a chance if you haven't already. Watch it here.

Noelle

No, it's not too early to turn on a Christmas movie. Especially one starring Anna Kendrick, Billy Eichner and the legendary Shirley MacLaine. Watch it here.

Togo

You know Balton. Now meet Togo, history's lesser-remembered but just as heroic sled dog whose untold true story is now a movie. Watch it here.

MARVEL STUDIOS

Avengers: Endgame

No matter how many times you've seen Endgame, you are still guaranteed goosebumps no less than five different times. (The portals!) Watch it here.

Black Panther

Visit Wakanda anytime to remind yourself why this won Marvel its first Academy Awards and ignited a full-on cultural movement. Watch it here.

Iron Man

You've seen how his story ends, but when's the last time you returned to the start and watched Tony Stark's first flight as Iron Man? Watch it here.

The Rise of Skywalker (which hasn't hit Disney+ yet) completed the Skywalker Saga, but it began here with a moisture farmer named Luke. Watch it here.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

The franchise's first anthology film -- or Star Wars Story -- is both a top-notch smash-and-grab flick and fix to a long-debated plot hole. Watch it here.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Our favorite from the newest trilogy, and not just because it features a purple-haired Laura Dern spouting space commands. Watch it here.
