Disney+ offers an assortment of movies from Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, and of course, Disney itself. Here’s the best films to check out.

There’s so much to watch on Disney+. From the action-packed Marvel films, to the classic, feel-good Pixar movies, Disney’s streaming service has no shortage of entertaining content from the big screen. There’s some new installments, such as Cruella and Black Widow, as well as others that go way back, including 1950’s Cinderella. Below, a comprehensive list of the best movies available to stream on Disney+.

Luca (2021)

Luca is one of Disney+’s newest — and most fantastic — installments. The Disney/Pixar animated film follows Luca Paguro (Jacob Tremblay), a young sea monster boy who can assume human form while on land, and so he decides to explore a town called Portorosso with his new pal Alberto (Jack Dylan Grazer). The best friend duo’s experience is truly life-changing, and one that viewers will laugh, smile, and cry over. Maya Rudolph, Jim Gaffigan, and Sacha Baron Cohen make up some of the movie’s marvelous voice cast.

Onward (2020)

Onward tells the story of two elf brothers (Tom Holland and Chris Pratt) who are seeking out a rare artifact in magical world that could supposedly bring their dad father back from the dead. But when the boys’ mother Laurel (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) realizes her sons are gone, she recruits The Manticore (Octavia Spencer) to help find them. Onward has so many family lessons, and it’s a can’t-miss entry on Disney+.

Coco (2017)

The Day of the Dead serves as the inspiration for Coco, which sees a 12-year-old Mexican boy named Miguel (Anthony Gonzalez) ending up in the Land of the Dead, a supernatural world. There, Miguel seeks the help of a deceased relative to help him reunite with his family and end his family’s ban on music, so that he can finally live out his dream of becoming a musician.

Soul (2020)

The 2020 Oscar-winning Soul features an all-star cast lead by Jamie Foxx, who voices a music teacher named Joe Gardner, whose soul and body are separated after falling down a manhole. The incident occurs just before Joe’s big break as a jazz musician, and so he teams up with other souls voiced by Tina Fey, Graham Norton, and more to reunite his soul and body. Along the way, Joe realizes what truly matters — and what doesn’t — in life.

Up (2009)

Up is the origin story of one of Disney/Pixar’s most beloved characters, the adorable Carl Fredricksen (Ed Asner). Carl’s wife sadly passes at the start of the film, and he carries out a promise he made to his late spouse by traveling to South America by tying thousands of balloons to his home. He’s joined on this adventure by child Wilderness Explorer Russel (Jordan Nagai), and the generational differences between the counterparts teaches them — and the viewers at home — some valuable lessons.

Toy Story 4 (2019)

The Toy Story films are classics, no doubt about that. All four films are available on Disney+, but if there’s just one worth watching, it’s Toy Story 4. Most movie franchises don’t get better over time, but Toy Story 4 defies the odds by offering another wonderful adventure for Buzz (Tim Allen), Woody (Tom Hanks), and the rest of their talking toy squad. This time, they join new owner Bonnie and new toy Forky (Tony Hale) on a road trip, and along the way Woody reunites with old pal Bo Peep (Annie Potts). All four Toy Story movies knock it out of the park, but this one may just be the franchise’s best.

Monsters, Inc. (2001)

Who doesn’t love Sulley and Mike Wazowski? John Goodman and Billy Crystal voice Monsters, Inc.‘s iconic duo, who work hard at scaring little children from a different world. But when one of those kids (2-year-old Boo, voiced by Mary Gibbs) wanders into their world, it’s up to Sulley and Mike to protect her from everyone else: including the villainous lizard Randall Boggs (Steve Buscemi).

The Incredibles (2004)

The Incredibles can be best described with one word: incredible! The action-packed animated film is all about the super-powered Parr family, that being Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson), Elastigirl (Holly Hunter), and their kids Violet (Sarah Vowell), Dash (Spencer Fox), and Jack-Jack. Their allies include the dreamy Frozone (Samuel L. Jackson) and outspoken Edna Mode (Brad Bird), and their family dynamics make them all too relatable — even with superpowers.

WALL-E (2008)

WALL-E

WALL-E is all about solo robot WALL-E (Ben Burtt), whose life consists of nothing more than cleaning up a future, uninhabitable Earth. But everything changes for WALL-E when a robot name EVE (Elissa Knight) shows up, and WALL-E forms a quick crush on his fellow robot! The pair explore the galaxy together in a film that every Disney/Pixar fan, humans and robots alike, should tune into.

Inside Out (2015)

Inside Out remains as one of Disney/Pixar’s most critically acclaimed animated films. 11-year-old Riley (Kaitlyn Dias) is struggling adjusting to a new home, so her five emotions — Joy (Amy Poehler), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black) and Disgust (Mindy Kaling) — come alive to lend some assistance. But when the group get separated, it becomes no easy task to get these five personified emotions back home.

Finding Nemo (2003)

Finding Nemo is a classic, and there’s no mystery as to why that is. After all, the movie manages to capture the father-son bond between Marlin (Albert Brooks) and Nemo (Alexander Gould) that warms the hearts of any viewer watching. Plus, the memory-loss antics of Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) add in some incredible humor to this unforgettable film.

Cars (2006)

Three movies later, Cars is another iconic Disney/Pixar franchise. Cars was created by John Lasseter and takes place in a world populated by talking vehicles, including Lightning (Owen Wilson). Lightning gets lost on his way to California in a race and ends up in Radiator Springs, a small town on Route 66 that is home to Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) and Sally Carrera (Bonnie Hunt). With his car wrecked, Lightning is forced to remain in the town and learn some much-needed life lessons.

Iron Man (2008)

The one where it all began. 2008’s Iron Man was the start of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), a never-ending string of action-packed movies that continue to dominate the box office even all these years later. Robert Downey Jr. truly makes for the perfect Tony Stark, and Iron Man offers everything you’d want in a Marvel film: action, romance, comedy, and a great villain played by Jeff Bridges.

Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy introduces a slew of new faces to the MCU, including Star-Lord, (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Groot (Vin Diesel), Rocket (Bradley Cooper), Nebula (Karen Gillan), and more. The extraterrestrial group pops up in more MCU films in the future, but its their origin story that remains a must-watch for the hard-core superhero fans and for those getting newly-acquainted to this complex, fascinating franchise.

Avengers: Infinity War (2018)

Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War is the first part of the blockbuster event that MCU fans had been waiting years for. Iron Man, Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and the rest of the Avengers team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy to stop Thanos (Josh Brolin) from obtaining the Infinity Stones and destroying the world. Infinity War ends on a cliffhanger (spoiler alert), and leads right into the next film on our list…

Avengers: Endgame (2019)

Avengers: Endgame

If you’re gonna watch Infinity War, you should watch Endgame fairly quickly after. After Thanos wipes out half the world, the remaining Avengers and their allies give it another go to stop their nemesis and restore the world once and for all. The action-packed film is quite emotional, given this is probably the last time the beloved heroes are all united together to fight the good fight. Avengers, Assemble!

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (1980)

Star Wars

Every Star Wars film is available to watch on Disney+, but 1980’s The Empire Strikes Back is the one most worth watching. While most films end with the good guys winning, this one doesn’t, and that’s what makes it so captivating. You have Luke (Mark Hamill) training with Yoda, Leia (Carrie Fisher) falling in love with Han (Harrison Ford), the epic battle between the Resistance and the Empire on the battle of Hoth, and last but not least, Darth Vader’s big reveal to Luke (“I am your father”!) The addition of Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams) only further cements The Empire Strikes Back land as the greatest Star Wars film of all.

Cruella (2021)

2021’s Cruella is oh so delicious, and that’s especially thanks to the impeccable performance of Emma Stone as the villainous dog skinner. There’s been several iterations of Cruella over the years, but this one may just top them all. Emma Thompson also stars in the film as The Baroness, who plays a crucial role in Cruella’s transformation from aspiring fashion designer to psycho killer.

Hamilton (2020)

It’s not exactly the same experience as being at the Broadway musical in-person, but quite frankly, this live stage recording of Hamilton is just as good. The musical drama film features the principal cast of the award-winning musical including Daveed Diggs, Renee Elise Goldberry, Jonathan Groff, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and more. Disney+’s recorded version snagged 12 Emmy nominations, and won two, in 2021. Much deserved!

Moana (2016)

Moana tells the story of the brave daughter (Auli’i Cravalho) of a Polynesian village chief who is chosen to reunite an ancient relic with the goddess Te Fiti. Along the way, she encounters Maui (Dwayne Johnson), a shapeshifting demigod who assists her in the adventure. Moana’s mission is simple: return the relic to Te Fiti and save all her people. Sounds easy…right?

The Lion King (2019)

The Lion King

The 2019 remake of The Lion King consists of quite the star studded cast. Donald Glover, Seth Rogen, Beyonce, Billy Eichner, the list goes on. The remake is pretty similar to the classic original, though the visual effects and vocal performances make this go-around for Simba pretty epic. The film was one of the most expensive ever made, so yes, you should absolutely check it out.

Cinderella (1950)

Cinderella

Cinderella is arguably the most iconic Disney tale of all. The story of a young girl being a servant for her cruel stepmother and stepsisters, only to meet her Prince and transform into a magical princess, has been told time and time again. But it’s the original Cinderella, which came out way back in 1950, that is the most magical version of all. The late Illene Woods voices the OG Cinderella, and she’s now a Disney Legend.

Home Alone (1990)

Home Alone

Kevin! Home Alone is perfect viewing for the holiday season, considering Macauley Culkin‘s Kevin McCallister gets left home alone while his family unknowingly leaves him behind to jet off on vacation for Christmas. But Kevin’s party-of-one doesn’t last long, as dimwit burglars Harry (Joe Pesci) and Marv (Daniel Stern) attempt to break into the house. Leave it to Kevin McCallister to conceive some innovative boobytraps to teach Harry and Marv a lesson to never mess with kids.

The Princess Diaries (2001)

The Princess Diaries

The Princess Diaries is up there with Cinderella as the best rags-to-riches story ever. Anne Hathaway plays Mia Thermpolis, an unpopular high schooler who gets the shock of her life when she learns she is the heir to a European kingdom. Cue Julie Andrews as Mia’s grandmother, Clarisse Renaldi, who teaches Mia how life as a royal truly goes. But Mia isn’t so sure she’s ready to leave the simple life, and she’s left grappling between choosing a path of normalcy or royalty.

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)

Pirates of the Caribbean

The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is such a thrilling watch for any and all ages. Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, and Keira Knightley are all thrust into an epic battle both in the seas and on land involving pirates led by the villainous Hector Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush). The Black Pearl makes an appearance, of course, and the film has no shortage of romance. In fact, the Jack-Will-Elizabeth love triangle is a main focus in The Curse of the Black Pearl, as well as the Pirates of the Caribbean films that come after.

Freaky Friday (2003)

Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis absolutely nailed their roles as a mother-daughter duo who magically swap bodies in Freaky Friday. The switch back doesn’t happen immediately, and so the duo is forced to spend their days as one another. Cue Jamie Lee playing a sassy rockstar teenager, and Lindsay as the overbearing mother and soon-to-be-bride. An absolute classic.

The Parent Trap (1998)

Parent Trap

We’re seeing double! The Parent Trap is all about identical twin sisters Annie and Hallie (Lindsay Lohan) who meet for the first time at a sleep away camp and form one crazy idea — to switch places! Annie goes off to California to live as Hailie with their dad Nick (Dennis Quaid), while Hailie pretends to be Annie in London with their mother Elizabeth (Natasha Richardson). The girls try to get their parents back together, but they have one big obstacle: Nick’s fiancee Meredith Blake (Elaine Hendrix), who is hell bent on making sure that she marries Nick, no matter what.

High School Musical (2006)

We’re all in this together! High School Musical is still one of Disney Channel’s most memorable films, thanks in part to the star-studded cast of Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, and more. Songs like “Bop to the Top,” “Breaking Free,” “Stick to the Status Quo,” and of course, “We’re All in This Together,” are still such classics. Come for the hunky Troy Bolton, and stick around for Sharpay Evans’ admirable (and all too relatable) sass.

Avatar (2009)

There’s never been another movie quite like Avatar. The 2009 film transports viewers to the world of Pandora, where a local tribe of humanoid species are fighting for their survival amidst the expanding mining colony. To date, Avatar remains the highest-grossing film of all time. Sequel films are coming in the next years, which gives Disney the chance to expand the Avatar franchise and capitalize on the original film’s undeniable success.

The Greatest Showman (2017)

This is the greatest show! The Greatest Showman is such an enjoyable musical film, thanks to the impeccable acting and musical performances from Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, Zendaya, Zac Efron, and more. The film won a ton of awards, which was much-deserved. We’re still hoping for a sequel, but for now, The Greatest Showman performs just fine on its own.

Jennifer Aniston & Kids: What The ‘Friends’ Star Has Said Over The Years About Not Having a Family

Published

on

Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston is fine being on her own and has often expressed disdain for being constantly questioned about that decision. Here we break down all the moments the actress has spoken out about her choices.

Jennifer Aniston, 52, has famously never settled down with a family of her own. After years of scrutiny and questioning about her decision to not have children, we’ve gathered all the moments the Friends actress has spoken out against the rampant sexism still prevalent in our culture and how her not having kids shouldn’t even be a “famous” thing to take note of in the first place.

For her next relationship, she wants things to happen naturally

For right now, the Morning Show actress is single and happy to be so — even though her friends have offered to set her up before. “Not right now,” she told radio host Howard Stern in October 2019 after he offered to find a great guy for her. “But listen, I just don’t like being set up. I don’t like it. Hate it.”

Moreover, Jen also revealed to PEOPLE in June 2021 that she’s “absolutely [not]” interested in using dating apps. “I’m going to just stick to the normal ways of dating. Having someone ask you out. That’s the way I would prefer it,” she dished to the outlet, also sharing that walking down the aisle for a third time is “not” something she’s considering.

“Oh God, I don’t know,” she joked. “I’m interested in finding a fantastic partner and just living an enjoyable life and having fun with one another. That’s all we should hope for. It doesn’t have to be etched in stone in legal documents.”

Her friends and family have pressured her in the past

“I don’t have this sort of checklist of things that have to be done and if they’re not checked then I’ve failed some part of my feminism, or my being a woman, or my worth or my value as a woman,” she explained to the outlet. “I’ve birthed a lot of things, and I feel like I’ve mothered many things. And I don’t think it’s fair to put that pressure on people.”

… And she’s kind of over that pressure 

Jennifer Aniston

“[I don’t] like [the pressure] that people put on me, on women — that you’ve failed yourself as a female because you haven’t procreated. I don’t think it’s fair,” Jen said in an interview with Allure in December 2014. “You may not have a child come out of your vagina, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t mothering — dogs, friends, friends’ children.”

She added, “This continually is said about me: that I was so career-driven and focused on myself; that I don’t want to be a mother, and how selfish that is.” The Cake actress also added to PEOPLE in 2014 that there are “a lot of reasons” someone could not be having children, “and maybe it’s something that no one wants to discuss.”

She’s happy to make her own decisions 

Jennifer Aniston

Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter last December, Jen noted that she “used to take it all very personal,” but has since moved on. “It’s like, ‘You have no clue what’s going with me personally, medically, why I can’t … can I have kids?’ They don’t know anything, and it was really hurtful and just nasty,” she explained.

“Although I haven’t seen a tabloid in so long. Am I still having twins? Am I going to be the miracle mother at 52?” she said jokingly. “It’s the same with Dolly Parton; Dolly Parton never had kids. But are people giving her s–t for it? No, no one’s tried to put her in a white picket fence.” 

Moreover, the Dumplin actress wrote an open letter to The Huffington Post in 2016 that clearly and beautifully made a statement about the sexist double standards placed on women with regard to having families and raising children. “We are complete with or without a mate, with or without a child … that decision is ours and ours alone,” she wrote. “We don’t need to be married or mothers to be complete. We get to determine our own ‘happily ever after’ for ourselves.”

Jennifer Lopez’s Kids: Everything To Know About Her Twins Emme & Max

Jennifer Lopez’s Kids: Everything To Know About Her Twins Emme & Max

Jennifer Lopez shares two teenaged twins with ex-husband Marc Anthony — learn everything about Max and Emme here.

Jennifer Lopez, 52, has worn many hats in the entertainment industry, including actress, singer, dancer, producer, clothing designer and perfumer — but no title means more to her than “mom.” The Bronx native is the mother to twins Max and Emme, 13, with her ex-husband Marc Anthony, 53. Find out everything you need to know about the teenagers here.

When were Max and Emme born?

Jennifer married Marc just months after her first split from Ben Affleck in June 2004 (they divorced, however, in 2014). The two had been romantically linked in the past, and had previously collaborated on Spanish language duet “No Me Ames” on her 1999 debut album On The 6. Three years after the secretive wedding, the Maid In Manhattan star announced she was pregnant on Nov. 8, 2007.

The then 38-year-old broke the news while she was on the joint El Cantante Tour with Marc in Miami after weeks of speculation. “Marc and I are expecting a baby!” she said as Marc cradled her bump. “We are happy…This is a special time in our lives. And we waited until the last show to tell you,” she said.

Just weeks before she gave birth, J.Lo’s dad David Lopez confirmed his middle daughter was expecting not one, but two babies. “Yes, twins…The thing is in my family, my sister also had twins, so it’s a hereditary thing,” he said on Spanish-language show Escéndalo TV. “I’m very proud. Jennifer has yearned to be a mother for many years.”

The This Is Me…Then singer gave birth to Max and Emme on February 22, 2008 in Long Island, N.Y. The world waited just four short weeks for the first glimpse at the beautiful twins, who were featured on a March 2008 cover of PEOPLE magazine in a worldwide exclusive.

Years later, Jennifer reflected on finding out she has having twins in a YouTube video dubbed Twin Talk with a then 11-year-old Max and Emme. “When I realized I was pregnant, I was in Portugal. I was doing a big show and I had just went away for two days. When I sat there, I was in my hair and makeup trailer, and here’s what I felt,” she said to them. “In my belly, I felt a flutter. I felt like a little butterfly in stomach, and immediately I knew I had life inside of me. I knew it. It came right into my head.”

It was at the doctor’s office she was told the news. “The doctor says, you see that right there, that little grain of rice? That’s the baby. You see this other little grain of rice over here? That’s the other baby,” she explained. “I was like ‘What.’ I started laughing hysterically. I just laughed out loud, I couldn’t believe it. And that’s how I found out I was having twins.”

Max and Emme over the years

The “coconuts” (Jen’s nickname for them) have grown up in the spotlight, often being photographed with their superstar mom and her various romantic partners, including ex-boyfriend Casper Smart, who she dated from 2011 to 2016, ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez, who she was with from 2017 – 2021, and rekindled beau Ben Affleck, who she reunited with in 2021.

Notably, Max and Emme were very close to Alex’s daughters Natasha, 16, and Ella, 13, who they were often pictured with in media and on their mom’s social media channels. In 2021, they’ve been spending a fair amount of time with Ben’s kids Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 9, who he shares with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, 49.

As a result of Bennifer’s rekindled romance, Max and Emme have been spending more time in Los Angeles compared to Miami, where their father Marc calls home, and Alex also maintained a residence (their mom also owns a $32 million Star Island home in the southern Florida city). Ahead of the 2021-2022 school year, J.Lo was also spotted checking out various exclusive private schools around Los Angeles, presumably to enroll the twins closer to her home in Bel-Air (and closer to Ben, who lives in Brentwood).

Beyond being photographed extensively over the years by paparazzi, and being center stage on their mom’s Instagram, the two have also been on red carpets! The twins made their red carpet debut at just seven, attending the 2014 premiere of their mom’s animated flick Home.

Emme stepping into the spotlight 

Following in the footsteps of her performing grandma Guadalupe and superstar mom, Emma stepped into the spotlight in a big way at the 2020 Super Bowl Halftime Show! The then 11-year-old impressively sang alongside Jennifer, who co-headlined the performance with Shakira.

Emme popped out to sing a few lines of Bruce Springsteen’s “Born In The USA” — remixed with J.Lo’s Latina anthem “Lets Get Loud” — blowing the audience away! “If you wanna live your life/Live it all the way and don’t you waste it,” she sang of her mom’s song while positioned in a cage, along with other children on stage. The moment was intentionally political, and a strong statement in response to former President Donald Trump’s immigration policy which separated families at the U.S./Mexico border.

“All I want my girls, the little girls on stage with me and all over the world to know is how to use their voices and be proud of everything they are,” Jennifer said after the performance. “Other people can try to build walls, keep us out or put us in cages. We are proud to recognize that all of us together are what makes this beautiful country truly great.”

Emme’s unique style 

In 2021, Emme embraced a totally unique style of her own! The gorgeous teen decided to rock a funky, shorter due, and embrace her natural curls. Earlier in the spring, she also died her hair blue, which she debuted at a Nobu Malibu dinner for aunt Lynda Lopez‘s birthday early on in Ben and Jennifer’s rekindled relationship.

The 13-year-old has also been channeling the ’90s in a series of retro inspired looks, including loose fitting jeans, vintage t-shirts and argyle sweaters, Vans sneakers and plenty of overalls.

In advance of the release of film Marry Me, Jennifer talked about how Max and Emme are both finding their “own identities” with Jimmy Fallon. “[They’re like] ‘It’s my life, I have my own identity, I am who I am, this is what I feel about the world, this is what I think.’…They need to distance themselves [from me],” she said, explaining that they are now “adult people in a little body.”

Billie Eilish & Brother Finneas Meet President Joe Biden At The White House – See Photo

Published

Billie Eilish, Finneas

Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas made a pit stop at the White House while on the singer’s world tour, taking a sweet photo op with President Joe Biden.

As Billie Eilish, 20, continues her Happier Than Ever world tour, she and her brother Finneas decided to make a brief pit stop at the White House — to visit President Joe Biden of course! The newly Oscar nominated singer and her sibling posed with the 46th president as he shared the moment to social media. “When I heard my friends @billieeilish and @finneas were in town for a show, I knew I had to invite them over to the White House,” he captioned the post. “Great to see you and your family — and I’m glad you got to meet Commander,” he wrote, speaking of the family’s new German Shepard puppy.

“Billie Eilish, Finneas and their parents Maggie and Patrick were invited to pay a visit to the White House today to meet President Biden,” an official confirmed to PEOPLE of the visit. “Billie and Finneas were supporters during Biden’s campaign and the Biden family have been long time fans of their music. Billie is in D.C. for her world tour, playing at the Capital One Arena tonight.”

Billie notably voiced her support of the president for the 2020 campaign. More recently, she also petitioned in November — along with Joaquin Phoenix and several other celebrities — for the president to break from tradition and send a pardoned turkey to a sanctuary for Thanksgiving.

For the photo op with POTUS, Billie showed off her notably jet black locks — a hairstyle switch she underwent recently and shared in a Feb.1 Instagram post. Not only was her new color jet black, but her bangs were super cool. They were extra short in the center of her forehead but turned into curtain bangs on the sides of her face.

Tons of fans rushed to the comments section to gush about her new look. One fan commented, “MY FAV HAIR COLOR,” “So gorgeous,” and one person even wrote, “BLACK HAIR ERA IS BACK.”

Meanwhile, just two weeks ago, Billie secretly had her hair dyed red for a week before she dyed it brown. She changes her hair color so often, we’re honestly no longer surprised! But she always manages to perfectly pull off her hairstyles, of course.
