The Best Movies to Catch on Disney Plus as 2020 Lapses


2020 has not been the best year for most people, but that does not mean you have to sit around and stay gloomy. The slogan ‘don’t worry, be happy’ could really come in handy for many people at the moment. Thankfully, there are a lot of offerings on Disney Plus that you can take advantage of to create a positive end to the year for yourself. Here are some top picks, most of which will be great viewing, even post 2020.

Black Panther

Wakanda really is forever! This movie is not going out of fashion any time soon. If you have not yet seen it (unlikely), this would be a great watch to wrap up your year. Even if you have, this is one movie that will always feel good to watch, especially if you can change the setting you are viewing in. Above all, it brings back the memories of the departed Chadwick Boseman, whose battle with cancer came as a surprise to many after his death.

Lion King

Yes, everyone has probably seen it, you included. However, not that many people have seen the 2019 remake. This version maintains the original uniqueness of the Lion King, while at the same time, introduces fresh elements, like Beyoncé’s and Donald Glover’s voices. A nice one to kick back with throughout the festive season.

The Simpsons

You probably guessed this one was coming! The Simpsons is a great anytime movie and an even better holiday watch. With a surreal depiction of daily happenings that get swept under the carpet in most families, The Simpsons is a great way to vent ironically and humorously. Do you have a Simpsons’ character in your family?


A cheaper-to-access, live-action version of Mulan comes to Disney+ at the start of December 2020. This will give you a chance to experience the animated movie in a new dimension, complete with full action and new, well thought out characters.

Things may not be getting easier with the turn of the year, but you can at least stay optimistic with these relaxing views! Enjoy!
