I absolutely love Disney+ and I have watched some fabulous movies over Christmas and still have some on my to watch list. I have shared this list as a playlist, inspiration for if you have some family movie nights over the next few weeks. Tonight we are working our way through Pirates of the Caribbean. Happy New Years! Sign up here. Check out our Marvel marathon movie list too, a great challenge for January!

Noelle (on our watchlist)

Starring Anna Kendrick as the daughter of Santa Claus who is full of Christmas spirit and holiday fun, but wishes she could do something “important” like her brother Nick (Bill Hader), who will take over for their father this Christmas. Nick is training to be Santa, but is failing miserably. When Nick is about to crumble like a gingerbread cookie from all the pressure, Noelle suggests he take a break and get away to clear his head…but when he doesn’t return, Noelle must find her brother and bring him back in time to save Christmas. 

Black Beauty (on our watchlist)

Starring Mackenzie Foy and the voice talents of Kate Winslet, this modern day reimagining of Anna Sewell’s timeless classic follows the story of Black Beauty, a wild horse born free in the American West. Rounded up and taken away from her family, Beauty is brought to Birtwick Stables where she meets a spirited teenage girl, Jo Green. Beauty and Jo forge an unbreakable bond that carries Beauty through the different chapters, challenges, and adventures of her life.

Godmothered (5 stars)

Set at Christmas time, “Godmothered” is a comedy about Eleanor, a young, inexperienced fairy godmother-in-training (Jillian Bell) who upon hearing that her chosen profession is facing extinction, decides to show the world that people still need fairy godmothers. Finding a mislaid letter from a 10-year-old girl in distress, Eleanor tracks her down and discovers that the girl, Mackenzie, is now a 40-year-old single mom (Isla Fisher) working at a news station in Boston. Having lost her husband several years earlier, Mackenzie has all but given up on the idea of “Happily Ever After,” but Eleanor is bound and determined to give Mackenzie a happiness makeover, whether she likes it or not.

Mulan (on our watch list)

Acclaimed filmmaker Niki Caro brings the epic tale of China’s legendary warrior to life in Disney’s “Mulan,” in which a fearless young woman risks everything out of love for her family and her country to become one of the greatest warriors China has ever known. When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father. Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father.

Soul (4 stars)

Exclusively on Disney+ from Christmas Day, Pixar’s latest creation is Soul. Meet Joe Gardner (voice of Jamie Foxx) – a middle-school band teacher who gets the chance of a lifetime to play at the best jazz club in town. But one small misstep takes him from the streets of New York City to The Great Before – a fantastical place where new souls get their personalities, quirks and interests before they go to Earth.
