10 Disney+ movies and TV shows to watch on launch day
Our anticipation and excitement for the launch of Disney+ has only increased as we quickly approach the day of its debut. From Marvel movies to Pixar classics, the streaming service is launching with over 300 titles ready for your viewing pleasure.
With so many movies and TV shows to choose from, it’s close to impossible to decide where to begin. We’re here to narrow down those endless choices and give you a great starting point for your Disney+ binge-watching on launch day.
1. Marvel’s Hero Project
If you’re looking for a feel-good show to kick-off Disney+ launch day, then look no further. Created for the streaming service, Marvel’s Hero Project will follow young heroes who are making a positive and powerful effect throughout their communities. Every kid who is featured in the show will also be immortalized in their very own Marvel comic.
2. Iron Man
With the conclusion of the Infinity Saga earlier this year, it’s important to remember where you come from. As we mourn the loss of some of our favorite Marvel superheroes, why not take a trip down memory lane with the film that started it all by watching Iron Man?
3. Lizzie McGuire
Fans were elated to learn that a Lizzie McGuire reboot was in the works over at Disney+. That excitement only grew with the recent news that the reboot would also see the return of the full McGuire family and Lizzie’s animated counterpart. The forthcoming reboot is set to take place just before Lizzie’s 30th birthday, so go ahead and get prepared in the best way by binging this nostalgic classic TV series and its feature film, The Lizzie McGuire Movie.
4. Boy Meets World
Arguably one of the most iconic TV series of all time, Boy Meets World was the show we found ourselves growing up with. The show lasted for seven seasons and eventually spun off into the reboot, Girl Meets World (which will also be available on launch day). Despite running from 1993-2000, the series deals with many issues that are still relevant and relatable today.
With the highly anticipated Frozen 2 slated to be released Nov. 22, it’s time to revisit the original in preparation for the sequel. It’ll be hard to top songs such as “Let It Go,” but with the sequel’s soundtrack pulling in artists such as Panic! At The Disco and Weezer, we’re positive it’s going to put up one hell of a fight.
6. A Goofy Movie
You’d be lying if you said you never wanted to attend a Powerline concert after watching this timeless animated film. Goofy’s son Max is the rebellious teenager we can all relate to. Plus, that gooey pizza and “leaning tower of cheez-uh” looked good enough to eat. If you don’t get your Goofy fill after this one, you can always dive right into the sequel, An Extremely Goofy Movie, which will also be available.
7. The Little Mermaid
With The Little Mermaid Live! kicking off on ABC earlier this month and a live-action Disney remake currently in the works, there’s no better time to revisit this classic animated film. From Cinderella to Snow White, there are plenty of classics emerging from the Disney vault on launch day, but The Little Mermaid is definitely at the top of our list.
8. Confessions Of A Teenage Drama Queen
Who doesn’t love a good teen comedy? If Mean Girls was given a musical twist, it would emerge as the 2004 film Confessions Of A Teenage Drama Queen. Based on a novel by the same name, the movie stars Lindsay Lohan, Megan Fox and many more. With songs that are catchy AF, you’ll find it nearly impossible to watch this cheesy film without singing along.
9. The Santa Clause
With Halloween just ending, it’s time to start looking ahead to the next magical holiday. The best way to get yourself into the Christmas spirit? By watching Tim Allen don the iconic red Santa suit in one of the best Christmas films of all time. A great storyline combined with the perfect amount of comedy makes this a hard one to pull yourself away from.
10. Hocus Pocus
With Freeform giving Hocus Pocus the attention it deserves during their 31 Nights Of Halloween, you may have found yourself getting your spooky season fill. Still, if you’re like us and can’t quite let go of Halloween just yet, you’re in luck. The timeless and iconic film will be available on launch day, meaning we can watch it whenever we want and as many times as we want before the sequel. What a glorious feeling.
