If you were one of the millions of people who subscribed to Disney+ on the first day of its launch, then you've likely had the opportunity to familiarize yourself with what they have to offer. There's a handful of original series, but the selling point was everything we grew up watching that we know and love. Despite the fact that there are hundreds of movies, Disney+ lacks original content as shown by a mini-game they accidentally created. 

Screen Rant reported last week that the new streaming platform might be facing this issue because "most of what Disney+ offers at launch is related to nostalgia."

After all, the morning it premiered, users were most excited for throwback shows like Boys Meets World and That's So Raven.

Recently, Screen Rant also reported that a feature Disney+ added to supposedly help users find content to stream actually created a funny game.

A Reddit user posted a photo of the casino-like game adding the caption, "Does anyone else play slots while browsing?"

Their photo shows three rows, labelled "Recommended For You", "Hit Movies", and "Trending". The first film in each category is Avatar and the last movie in all three columns is Toy Story 3. In the middle are Marvel's Hero Project, Frozen, and The Lion King. 

The resulting layout creates a grid with nine movie posters that look like the user won in two columns. 

Although this is comical, it also exposes "the fact that many of the same movies can appear three, four, or even five times on the home page" according to Screen Rant. 

Ideally, there should have been nine different movies recommended to the user rather than the same two movies being shown six times.

There are two Disney+ originals that stand out from the rest including The Imagineering Story, which takes you behind the scenes in the Walt Disney Imagineering Company and it got love after only two episodes aired

The second is The Mandalorian which features the incredibly adorable Baby Yoda and is so popular that it was streamed 100 million times within its first week

New episodes of the Star Wars-based show release every week but eventually, they will stream all of the available episodes in the series.

Other Disney+ originals include Forky Asks a Question, The World According to Jeff Goldblum, and One Day at Disney, among quite a few more.
