If you haven’t subscribed to Disney+ but are missing those magical movies, you’ll be glad to know that Netflix is still showing a handful of Disney films.
The streaming service offers a varied collection of Disney features, from traditional animations to newer live-action hits. While all these will likely migrate to Disney+ in the future, now’s the time to catch them on Netflix while you still can.
Get ready to use your imagination as we take a closer look at eight Disney movies you can watch via Netflix right now.
1. The Princess and the Frog
In 2009, Disney graced the world with Tiana, its first Black princess. She’s bold, hardworking, and a true icon due to her perseverance and down-to-earth personality.
Tiana’s story takes place in 1920s New Orleans, where she dreams of trading in her waitress jobs for that of a restaurant owner. However, after she kisses a prince-turned-frog in hopes of making him human again (and getting money for her eating establishment in exchange), she is transformed into the slimy creature herself.
While the heroine is the No. 1 reason to see this fairytale, the dreamy hand-drawn animations are a close second.
2. Incredibles 2
The smashing sequel to The Incredibles has found its home on Netflix. While the first film has Mr. Incredible attempting to get back into hero work, this one has his wife Elastigirl taking the lead after she is recruited to scout out a mysterious villain known as the Screenslaver.
Meanwhile at home, Mr. Incredible learns that he can best serve his family (and the world) by taking care of his three kids. Unfortunately, managing a love-struck teenager, a hyper 10-year-old, and a baby who just discovered his superpowers is no easy task.
Maybe the story is a little predictable, but the humorous scenarios and cutting action sequences make it worth your time.
3. Saving Mr. Banks
If you’re looking for a more mature Disney hit, this period drama, which tells a slightly glossed-over version of how the original Mary Poppins came to the big screen, might be worth a watch.
In Saving Mr. Banks, Walt Disney (Tom Hanks) attempts to convince author P.L. Travers (Emma Thompson) to give him creative freedom in adapting her Mary Poppins children’s books into a movie. However, Travers is reluctant to let Hollywood profit off of her stories, especially due to the significance they have in her life.
Flashbacks reveal that Travers’ difficult childhood has forced her to become possessive of her characters, particularly that of George Banks…Read more>>
