Streaming services like Disney+ always emphasize their new titles. That makes sense; their primary goal is to continuously add new subscribers, which in turn increases their bottom line and their stock price. So the coverage of these sites is always about what’s new. (ScreenCrush is certainly not immune to this phenomenon.)
But the reality is that Disney+ has quite a large and stable catalog of older films, thanks in part to owning and curating most of the films the Walt Disney Studio has released over the past century. A few years ago, they also bought 20th Century Fox, adding even more titles to their collection. But with all the emphasis on whatever the latest Marvel or Star Wars series, you may never realize all the good you have could look instead of Laserman and the Funktastic Five.
That’s why we wrote this list. It features ten titles spanning more than 80 years of Disney (and Fox) history that you may not have seen, and probably don’t know are available to stream right now. Most are great for families and kids, but some are aimed at older viewers as well. They are all worth your time. You pay for that Disney+ subscription; you might as well get the most out of it. If you watch these movies, you will too.
