The 25 Best Disney Movies And Shows On Netflix To Watch Before They Leave For Good

Come back, Mickey!

Netflix is going to turn a small reduction magical in a nearby future.

While a online use has fundamentally turn synonymous with the judgment of streaming video whenever we want — no one says “Let’s Hulu and chill” — by 2019, we won’t be means to tide whatever Disney calm we wish on Netflix anymore.


Disney announced this week that they would be pulling all of their movies, including Pixar movies, from Netflix during a finish of 2018 given they’ll be rising their possess streaming use in 2019, with strange movies, TV shows, and, yes, all of a Disney cinema you’ve been examination on other online platforms.

(Disney will also be rising a clever ESPN streaming use progressing in 2018.)

So, what does that meant for examination your favorite Disney cinema and TV shows online?

Bob Iger, CEO of Disney, privately pronounced that any Disney or Pixar-related movie would unequivocally be pulled from Netflix, but, according to a Hollywood Reporter, a “jury was still out on Marvel and Star Wars films.” (You forgot they owned Marvel and Lucasfilm now, didn’t you?)

Iger mentioned that a Marvel shows that were privately combined for Netflix — like Daredevil or The Defenders — would sojourn on a service, though other Disney shows (like a Disney Channel shows that are now on Netflix) were not mentioned in a announcement.

However, it competence be protected to assume that a predestine of ANY Disney-owned skill on Netflix right now is adult in a air. So, rather than shopping all of your favorite programs before they disappear behind that Disney-specific paywall, because not celebrate all of a Disney movies and TV shows on Netflix right now with a small at-home film festival?

If we wish to spend a few weeks creation your Netflix comment a happiest place on Earth, here are a 25 BEST Disney cinema and TV shows now on Netflix that we should unequivocally watch before they’re left subsequent year.


1. Zootopia

It won a best charcterised film Oscar for a reason. This buddy-cop comedy, set in a capital filled with articulate animals, is one of a smartest, funniest, many surprisingly touching cinema that Disney has done in years. You will not mind examination this with your kids (or on your own).


2. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

I know a predestine of a Star Wars films on Netflix isn’t set in mill yet, though any forgive to revisit Rogue One is a good one. Does it have some uncanny flaws and no opening crawl? Yes. But a movement is still fantastic, a world-building is solid, a finale is crazy, crazy dark, and that Darth Vader scene, right? we mean, right??


3. Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films Collection

Walt Disney Animation Studios is now experiencing a bit of a artistic rebirth — interjection to cinema like Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph, and Zootopia — though one of a best showcases for a sparkling things now function during a studio is this collection of a shining brief films that have been concomitant new Disney releases. Is this a box of Disney blatantly duplicating a Pixar formula? YES. But that doesn’t meant they’re not really, unequivocally good.


4. Fantasia

This 1940 exemplary is one of a many pleasing charcterised films of all time AND it has spent a past 70 years behaving as many kids’ initial introduction to exemplary music. So, yeah, this is a capital-C “Classic” and a “Sorcerer’s Apprentice” shred is still one of a best things Mickey Mouse ever did.


5. The Emperor’s New Groove

I will physically quarrel anyone who argues that Emperor’s New Groove isn’t one of a funniest charcterised films of a past 20 years. But we get it. Nothing about this 2000 film creates sense. It had a uneasy prolongation story (there’s a whole documentary about how they cut out all of a song Sting wrote for it), it stars David Spade, and it’s about a llama. But, male oh man, it is HILARIOUS.


6. The Jungle Book (2016)

The strange charcterised chronicle has approach improved song and a looser, some-more infrequent vibe, though Jon Favreau’s live-action/CGI reconstitute of a Disney exemplary is engaging, entertaining, and positively pleasing to demeanour at.


7. Queen of Katwe

If you’re not informed with this movie, we should be — generally if we know any susceptible immature girls looking for a kick-ass purpose model. Directed by a lady who brought us Bend It Like Beckham, this biopic tells a loyal story of Phiona Mutesi, a immature lady from a bad segment of Uganda who improbably became a universe chess master. (It’s unequivocally fantastic.)


8. The Parent Trap (1961)

The iconic strange still has a ton of charm, and it doesn’t come with all that “OMG, what happened to Lindsay Lohan?” baggage. You should give it a try.


9. Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

Probably still a best consistent of live movement and animation ever put to film, Roger Rabbit is improved than we remember. Plus if we freaked out over a new trailer for Ready Player One, where Steven Spielberg got accede to have a Back to a Future automobile interacting with a Iron Giant, Freddy Kruger, and other cocktail enlightenment properties, Roger Rabbit is radically a charcterised chronicle of that — somehow anticipating a approach to have Mickey Mouse joking around with Bugs Bunny though removing everybody sued.


10. Pirates of The Caribbean: The Curse of a Black Pearl

If a fifth film has given we Pirates fatigue — and if new press coverage of Johnny Depp has given we Johnny tired — we should severely go behind and revisit The Curse of a Black Pearl. It’s a tremendously FUN film and Depp is certainly illusory in it. Maybe it can assistance we remember because people indeed wanted MORE Jack Sparrow in a initial place.


11. Sky High

This 2005 film is an under-the-radar gem and maybe one of a best superhero films of a past 20 years. It’s like a John Hughes film set in a high propagandize for a children of superheroes, though a book is cleverer than we design and a casting is EXCELLENT. You’ve got Kurt Russell, Lynda Carter (as a principal), and a murderer’s quarrel of comedians from blueprint comedy groups like Broken Lizard, Mr. Show, and The Kids in a Hall. It’s value a look.


12. Phineas And Ferb

You competence not trust me, though Phineas and Ferb is one of a smartest, funniest, many meta charcterised shows in new memory. It follows a stability adventures of of dual child geniuses perplexing to have a best summer ever, though it’s about so many some-more than that. It has unhandy super villains, a discarnate reggae space voice (??), consistent fourth wall breaking, and a outrageous fan following, that lead to guest appearances by people like Ben Stiller, Kevin Smith, and Simon Pegg. Trust me, it’s addictive.


13. Mickey’s House of Villains

This competence seem like an peculiar pick, though it has some dark depth. The Disney Channel had a uncover called “House of Mouse” about Mickey Mouse owning a nightclub that several Disney characters would revisit and, in this Halloween episode, each Disney knave shows adult and takes over a establishment. But that storyline isn’t a genuine interest (it’s flattering cheesy). The best partial is that a partial collects new and aged Halloween-themed Disney brief films and many of them (even a new ones) are intensely well-made.


14. The Nightmare Before Christmas

A stop-motion exemplary and a impulse for 90% of a sell during Hot Topic. This Tim Burton masterpiece is still a best “movie to watch between Halloween and Christmas” ever made.


15. Disney Animation Collection Volumes 1-3

These brief film compilations collect some of a many noted cartoons from a golden age of Disney, like The Three Little Pigs, The Tortoise and a Hare, and Mickey and a Beanstalk. If we suffer exemplary animation (or if we wish to uncover your kids that there were cartoons before a epoch of CGI), these are value a look.


16. Moana

Kick-ass princess who controls her possess destiny, Dwayne Johnson oozing charm, song by Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda… what’s not to like? (You’re welcome.)


17. Cool Runnings

Children of a ‘90s have a lot of love for this biopic about a violent loyal story of a initial Jamaican bobsled group competing in a Winter Olympics and with good reason. It’s desirable as HELL and it stars John Candy, so it has a LOT going for it. One of a many kid-friendly, smile-worthy sports cinema in new memory.


18. Captain America: Civil War

So, as we pronounced earlier, it’s still not transparent if Marvel cinema will be withdrawal Netflix as partial of a new Disney streaming service, though because not use that as an forgive to rewatch Civil War? Because it’s good. Strangely good. In fact, it shouldn’t be this good. The grounds is violent and it has approach too many characters, though it all works and it competence be a best Avengers film given a original Avengers. (I’m intentionally avoiding eye strike with you, Age of Ultron.)


19. Doctor Strange

Very identical to Civil War in respects that “yeah, it competence not leave Netflix,” though it’s still unequivocally entertaining. Might not be a best Marvel film ever, though it’s visually engaging, Cumberbatch is a clever lead, and it doesn’t take itself too seriously.


20. Heavyweights

This 1995 film set during a kids’ fat stay competence demeanour like a clichéd riff on a normal “camp movie” formula, though we have to take a demeanour during a extraction behind this movie. It is a initial film ever created by Judd Apatow (yes, that Judd Apatow), a prolongation group is done adult of people behind shows like Freaks Geeks and some of Adam Sandler’s funniest movies, AND a bad man is Ben Stiller who is radically personification a proto-version of his knave from Dodgeball. So if we missed this on in a 90s, it’s value a look.


21. Girl Meets World

This Disney Channel uncover — a delay of a ‘90s nostalgia strike Boy Meets World — shouldn’t be as good as it is. And yet, notwithstanding some approaching kids’ uncover cheesiness, it’s suddenly smart, moving, and well-made. Particular credit goes to woke AF Rowan Blanchard for bringing a startling volume of gravitas to a pretension role.


22. Finding Dory

It’s not as good as Nemo. (It has to be said.) But, notwithstanding being slight and a bit repetitive, it’s still beautifully done and will make we grin for hours.


23. The BFG

This film flopped during a box office, though Steven Spielberg’s take on a Roald Dahl exemplary deserved better. It wears a heart on a sleeve, has some smashing moments, and Mark Rylance’s opening as The BFG is simply beautiful.


24. Pete’s Dragon (2016)

The strange Pete’s Dragon is a uncanny ‘70s goofball gem, though this 2016 retelling of a story trades in all of a sing-alongs to tell an amazingly relocating story about a untamed child in a forest vital with his peaceful hulk dragon friend. It’s some-more like a love-child of E.T and a Terrence Malick film than Bedknobs and Broomsticks, and it’s unequivocally value your time.


25. Lilo Stitch

One of a weirdest, many individualist charcterised cinema that Disney ever done and it’s… GREAT. Just great. You will grin all a approach by it.
