Disney+ is, by no stretch of the truth, a Disney lover’s dream come true. With nearly all the studio’s best and brightest under one streaming platform, fans of their films and TV shows have more than a lion’s share of original content to select from. That all being said, it’s still a lot to take in and it can be hard deciding where to start.
Fortunately for fans of all things magical and Mickey, the service has several collections of movies and shows that will suit any fan’s specific tastes. It’s more than a handful of cinematic selections.
Mickey Mouse And Friends
Walt always said that it was all started by a mouse, so it makes perfect sense that Mickey, Minnie, and all their cartoon pals would have an entire collection of their work dedicated to them on Disney+. From his classic cartoons to some more modern favorites, anything that features Mickey and the gang can all be found in one collection.
Everything from Steamboat Willie to The World of Mickey Mouse is here on full display, but Mickey isn’t the only one getting in on the action. Shows like Goof Troop, Ducktales, and more are also included in the collection, along with a handful of feature films with Mickey and the rest of his friends in starring roles.
Disney Channel Original Movies
For some, this collection will definitely be a hit and miss depending on their age range. However, Disney completionists will be happy to know that nearly all of Disney Channel’s original films can be found in one selection. With musicals, sports dramas, and screwball comedies galore, there’s no denying the collection’s variety.
Featuring classics like Underwraps, Luck of the Irish, and The Thirteenth Year, along with more modern additions like Descendants, Zapped, and Cloud 9, the collection is mainly meant for those who grew up with the films, or still have a taste for that special brand of Disney TV movies.
The Disney Parks Collection
No matter if their home park is in Anaheim or Orlando, the Disney Parks Collection has a laundry list of movies, shows, and specials focusing on the happiest places on earth. Whether fans are looking to get themselves hyped up for an upcoming trip to the parks or are simply wanting to learn as much as they can about their favorite attractions, they’ll have no shortage of material to dive into.
The collection features films inspired by the parks such as the recently released Jungle Cruise as well as a large selection of Disney-inspired documentaries like Behind the Attraction and The Imagineering Story for fans to get their magical fix while outside the parks. It’s certainly a great way to kick off a countdown to Disney.
For those who need a moment of mindfulness with an extra dash of magic, Disney+ has more than a few treats for those looking to find their zen. The titles in this collection are more of a sensory experience or a visual meditation rather than a narrative or documentary feature, but they put a new focus on familiar material like Disney movies and parks.
Fans can wake up with the sunrise over the Disney parks, take a meditative moment with the sound effects from animated movies, or find tranquility in a galaxy far, far away. It’s certainly a new way to see and experience favorite films and characters.
The Muppets Collection
When it’s time to play the music or it’s time to light the lights, viewers can’t go wrong with giving the Muppets collection a watch. Jim Henson’s creatures and creations of fur and felt have always had a particularly niche audience, but now both casual and die-hard fans can enjoy the antics of Kermit and company from the comfort of their couches.
Of course, the recently added and talked-about Muppet Show reruns are available, but so are all the movies and spinoffs featuring characters like Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, and more. This collection might only appeal to a certain fanbase, but there’s still plenty to love if fans want a good laugh.
The Disney company got its start making animated short subjects, so it might be a good idea to check out some more modern additions to that legacy as well. Of course, the collection features Disney classics like Mickey, Donald, Goofy, and the Silly Symphonies, but it also features several contemporary cartoons as well.
Fans of Pixar’s work will definitely want to browse through and find their favorites, as well as anyone with an appreciation for the animation medium. Simply put, there’s something for everyone in this collection of cartoons.
Marvel: The Infinity Saga
Any fan of the MCU will be satisfied with a Disney+ membership, but if they’re looking to tackle the primary storyline that draws everyone in together, they need to check out The Infinity Saga. Containing the first three phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s the perfect jumping point for fans just getting involved or those looking just to re-educate themselves with the material.
Beginning with Iron Man and going all the way to Endgame, the collection features nearly all the Marvel movies in chronological order leading all the way to the dramatic conclusion of Phase Three. It’s ideal for those wanting to experience Marvel in its entirety.
Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga
Considered by many to be one of the most unforgettable cinematic stories ever told, The Skywalker Saga features every core chapter in the Star Wars series from Phantom Menace to The Rise of Skywalker, essentially the backbone of the famous franchise. From humble beginnings on Tatooine to a grand and glorious battle of Exegol, viewers will see the brightest stars in that galaxy far, far away.
Practically mandatory watching for any level of Star Wars fan, this collection contains all three trilogies concerning the ways of the Force. From Anakin to Luke to Kylo and Rey, viewers will be treated to three generations of adventure and wonder in this beloved series.
Walt Disney Animation Studios Collection
The term “mandatory watching” has certainly been tossed around for many films on the streaming service, but as far as collections go, no Disney fan worth their salt should miss out on this one. Consisting of nearly every animated feature released by Walt Disney Pictures, the artistry and imagination of the studio is all captured and contained in one collection.
From Snow White to Encanto, every animated feature-length film is here and ready for viewing. Along with a few shorts and originals, the collection features quite a bevy of beloved stories and characters to entertain any viewer of any age. After all, no one’s ever too old for a classic Disney movie.
Disney Through The Decades
The Walt Disney Animation Studios Collection might have been for the true fans, but Disney Through The Decades is for die-hard fans. The collection holds a selection of films, shorts, and series from the studio’s early days. If any Disney fan truly wants to learn the history of the brand, this is the best place to start.
Whether they begin with Mickey’s black-and-white cartoons or simply dive into their favorite decade, fans young and old will find something to treasure and enjoy in this incredibly diverse assortment.
