Disney+ finally went up in the States,Canada, Australia and New Zealand this week. Here in the Netherlands we had a test version for about two months already but we’re getting a lot of new content with this full launch. I’ve been watching some shows and movies these last two months but was definitely looking forward to the full launch. So I thought today would be a great day to show some of the movies that are on my Disney+ watchlist. Let’s get into it!
Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
I’ve only ever watched the first Star Wars (episode IV) and I think this is the perfect opportunity to go ahead and make my way through all the Star Wars content. Everyone is going crazy over the Mandolorian and I can’t wait to find out what all the fuss is about. I like the first Star Wars okay but I’m expecting it all to become increasingly better.
I never watched Avatar! And I think I need to rectify that haha. This was such a big deal when it came out, and while no one seems to talk about it anymore I do feel like I should watch this at some point. It’s nice to have it lined up and ready the moment I do feel inclined to watch it.
I think this is the only true rewatch on this list. It’s been a couple of years since I saw Maleficent but with the new movie coming out I’d like to have all the details clearly in my mind before watching that. I’m very excited for the new movie and wouldn’t want to spoil my experience with not remembering anything from the first movie. All I remember is that I loved it haha.
Of course I have seen Dumbo before, but I haven’t seen the new version yet. And if I’m being honest, I don’t quite remember what happens in this movie. It isn’t one of my favorites and the actual plot of the movie is quite fuzzy in my memory. I would love to do a Disney marathon with some friends and watch this one.
Lady and the Tramp
Another movie where I have seen the original but not the newest version. It’s great that they added it to Disney+ right away and while this wasn’t a favorite Disney movie either I am excited to watch it. I have to admit I haven’t even seen the trailer though.
A Wrinkle in Time
I read the book not too long ago but was actually quite disappointed if I’m being honest. The movie trailer looked excellent though and I’m hoping it can convey the story a bit better than the book did. I’m wondering if there will be any more movies as the book is the first in a series.
Ant-Man and the Wasp
This is one of the only two Marvel movies I haven’t seen yet! And I do hope they add Spider-Man: Far From Home soon. I’m not super invested in Ant-Man and since this wasn’t really necessary to watch before Endgame I didn’t see it yet. But it would be nice to have seen all the movies in the Cinematic Universe so it is on my list!
Mary Poppins Returns
I don’t think I’ll watch this one any time soon but I did put it on my list. Emily Blunt is a great actress and I do like Mary Poppins. I went to see the musical in the Netherlands a couple of years ago and I am excited to see what they did in this sequel of sorts.
The Black Cauldron
There are only a couple of Disney movies I haven’t seen and The Black Cauldron is one of them. I hadn’t even heard of it until a couple of years ago. Obviously this won’t do and I might watch this one pretty soon! I’m super excited to have a new ‘old’ Disney movie to watch for the first time.
Atlantis: the Lost Empire
One of the other old Disney movies I haven’t seen yet! I think this isn’t a super popular and well known one either so it makes sense I didn’t see it. But as a big Disney lover is those feel like I failed a bit with not seeing these movies sooner. This is another one I plan on seeing very soon!
These are most of the movies on my Disney+ to watch list! Have you seen any of them? Or do you plan on watching them? Do you have any recommendations I should put on my list? Tell me all about it in the comments!
