For years, Netflix has ruled the movie streaming game. But come November, a new player will show up with big moves. A couple of years ago, the Walt Disney Company made a huge decision to start creating their own on-demand streaming service, Disney+.
Disney+ will stream all its big-budget films and timeless classics, including new Disney+ exclusive content. The company boasts a smaller price than its major competitor and may already have more than a million U.S. subscribers, weeks before the launch date, according to TechCrunch.
How is it possible for Disney+ to already be making big waves without even being live? The answer is simple; it’s the amazing lineup of movies and television shows they are set to stream. All our childhood favorites will be a click away. Hundreds of different movies will be available, but here are 20 picks that can’t be missed.
