Movies4Kids At Home: 75 Of The Best Movies To Watch On Disney+
In these uncertain times when many of us are working from home or self-isolating and cinema doors are shuttered, streaming services such as Disney+ Amazon Prime and Netflix are going to be a welcome form of entertainment for the whole family.
With this in mind, Movies4Kids is going to provide handy lists of some of the best movies you can watch with the kids – and ones they can watch on their own – from the main streaming services, beginning with the new Disney+service that launched in the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Austria, Italy, Spain and Switzerland on March 24 and is already available in the US.
Disney+ is offering more than 350 series and 500 films to start with, which is a very long list to choose from, so we’ve picked out some of the highlights below. Note that just about every Disney animated classic, Pixar animation, Marvel comic book movie and Star Wars adventure is on Disney+ – we just didn’t have the space to include them all!
For more information on the service and how to sign up, visit disneyplus.com.
We’ve divided our pick of the Disney+ movies into categories, including Animal Movies, Family Comedies, Movies for the Under 7s, Movies for Older Kids & Adults, and those Disney Classic Animated Movies we all love.
