Noelle. This is a new, exclusive movie to Disney Plus. If you’re looking for that heartfelt and warm Christmas movie, this is the one to watch this season!
Miracle on 34th Street is a classic Christmas story and the original is even better than the remake. In this movie, Santa Claus must convince a little girl to believe in him and it becomes a major court case where he wins over the city of New York.
Nightmare Before Christmas is a cult classic about the leader of Halloween Town taking over Christmas when he stumbles upon Santa’s Workshop after lamenting his role as a “master of fright”
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is a very recent Disney release with splendid visuals. The fanciful adaptation of The Nutcracker and the Mouse King includes music by James Newton Howard and an outstanding cast.
Lady and the Tramp may not be a traditional Christmas movie, but the story begins and ends at Christmas. Lady is, after all, a Christmas present from Jim Dear to Darling. This reimagining of the animated classic is only available on Disney Plus.
Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas This was such a fun sequel and it not only works better than other Disney animated sequels it’s a genuinely enjoyable way to revisit the characters from the Disney Animation Studios masterpiece.
Mickey’s Christmas Carol This short but sweet adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic is a must. It’s the first time original Disney characters were repurposed to stage a story on such a major scale. Jiminy Cricket plays the Ghost of Christmas Past. Goofy plays Jacob Marley. The movie also features Mr. Toad as Fezzywig and the giant from Mickey and the Beanstalk as the Ghost of Christmas Present.
Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas A more recent feature headlined by Mickey, this collection of short stories is an excellent way to entertain children. The three stories, in turn, feature Donald Duck, Goofy, and Mickey and Minnie.
Mickey’s Twice Upon a Christmas features five stories. Minnie and Daisy have a story, Scrooge and his nephews have a Duck Tales inspired story, The Goof Troop reunites for “Christmas Maximus” hen Donald and Mickey each get a cartoon to close the feature with.
A Muppets Christmas Carol is a feature-length adaptation of A Christmas Carol that seems at least a little bit inspired by Mickey’s Christmas Carol. in this Kermit plays Bob Cratchit instead of Mickey, but the cast is a mix of muppets and humans. Michael Cains’s chilling portrayal of Scrooge counters the zaniness of the muppets brilliantly. Plus, It Feels Like Christmas is one of the best Christmas songs ever.
A Christmas Carol is one of those classics that never gets old no matter how many times they remake it. Case in point is this Jim Carrey and Robert Zemeckis’s collaboration to bring Scrooge to animated life like never before. All of the Christmas Carol adaptations are excellent Christmas movies on Disney Plus. This is one of my favorite movies! I remember when my Grandma gave me the original one for Christmas; and whenever I watch it again, it reminds me of that special memory.
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is an outside the box choice, but Christmas is a major theme throughout the film. In this story, the White Witch has made everlasting winter in Narnia with no Christmas. When Father Christmas arrives during the film bringing gifts to the children it is a sign that Aslan is returning to break the evil queen’s curse. It’s so great that this is one of the Christmas movies on Disney Plus that are available this year.
Home Alone is one Fox production we were excited to find. This flawless film is just silly and dark enough to be perfect for young children and keep mom and dad entertained. Who gets it worse? Marve, or Harry? Let us know in the comments.
Home Alone 2: Lost in New York is a worthy sequel that pretty closely follows the formula of the original while upping the stakes in a true sequel fashion.
I’ll Be Home for Christmas is a 21-year-old gem staring JTT and Jessica Biel. It’s surprisingly entertaining, even good enough to watch year after year. JTT plays a wise-cracking smooth talker who is used to getting his way. When he is lured back home across the country by the promise of a car, he has an epic and humbling adventure.
The Santa Clause is another favorite movie our family enjoys watching. The sequels are Christmas Movies on Disney Plus too, but the first movie is where it’s at. Disney blends the cynicism of the 1990’s New York with the wonder and magic of the North Pole and Tim Allen is the best guy for the job of weaving in and out of those very different tones.
