Streaming services such as Disney + always emphasize their new titles. It makes sense; their primary goal is to constantly add new subscribers, which in turn increases their bottom line and their stock price. So the coverage of these sites is always about what is new. (ScreenCrush is determined not immune to this phenomenon.)
But the reality is that Disney + has a fairly large and stable back catalog of older movies, thanks in part to the fact that they own and control most of the movies released by Walt. Disney Study for the last century. A few years ago, they also bought 20th Century Fox and added even more titles to their collection. But with all the emphasis on what the latest Marvel or Star wars the series is that you may never discover all the good things you could be to see instead Laserman and the Functional Five.
That’s why we wrote this list. It features ten titles spread across more than 80 years of Disney (and Fox) history that you may not have seen, and probably do not know, are available to stream right now. Most are great for families and children, but some are also aimed at older viewers. All of them are worth spending time on. You pay for the Disney + subscription; you might as well get the most out of it. If you watch these movies, you will.
