From early animated shorts to ground-breaking full-length animated movies to beloved live-action family favorites to the current blockbuster trifecta of superheroes, space operas, and 3D computer animation, Disney+ spans more than 100 years of the history of its flagship studio. It spans a wide period of time and includes many great works, some average work, and even some duds. Only the greatest films on Disney+ will be found and showcased by Rotten Tomatoes.
Are you looking for old Disney animated films? The most recent ones, such as Cinderella, Fantasia, 101 Dalmatians, The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, and Beauty and the Beast, are available on Disney+. The best of the more recent Disney animated films are Frozen, Moana, and Zootopia. Of course, talking about Disney animation today would be incomplete without including Pixar, whose films include Toy Story, Inside Out, The Incredibles, and more. Pixar is fully represented in Certified Fresh.
However, the streaming service does not skimp out on the longstanding legacy of family-friendly live-action movies produced by Walt Disney Studios. These great live-action/animation films (Mary Poppins, Pete’s Dragon), sports classics (The Rookie, Miracle, Remember the Titans), and some delightful science fiction are all included here (TRON, Flight of the Navigator).
Disney+ is opening a couple of movies short of a complete Avengers lineup if you’re seeking to get lost in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Expect to see Iron Man, Guardians of the Galaxy, and a number of other titles on the list, and be on the lookout for updates as new titles are added. Of course, Star Wars is also present in full form, with films like A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, and The Force Awakens as well as spin-offs like Rogue One from the modern day.
Each movie had to have at least 20 reviews in order to be included in our guide, which ensures that we are only presenting the best films that have attained the necessary level of exposure and critical acclaim.
