Shows like Sex Education and 13 Reasons Why remind us how tough growing up can be. But, being an adult isn't much easier! Just take the growing collection of takeout containers on my kitchen counter as evidence. Sometimes, I wish I could step into a time machine and be nine years old again. If you're having one of those days, let your ol' friend Netflix take the wheel. Pour yourself an adult beverage before you pretend to be a kid again with one of these Disney movies on Netflix.
It's pretty amazing how well Disney movies stand the test of time. Regardless of how many times we watch them, they always manage to hit us right in the feels. So, whether you need a good cry (because you just DO sometimes) or you're looking for a warm, fuzzy pick-me-up, Netflix has just what you need. Plus, with the announcement that Toy Story 4 is coming out soon, you might want to brush up on your Disney before it hits theaters!
In one of Pixar's best movies to date, Coco follows the story of Miguel who dreams of being a musician despite everyone in his family hating music. This incredible film captures the magic of Mexico's famous Day of the Dead celebrations.
Beauty and the Beast
She's not little Hermione Granger anymore. Emma Watson stars in this live-action retelling of Disney's 1991 animated classic Beauty and the Beast. She was the smartest witch at Hogwarts, and she can sing too!
And, we thought Jane in Mr. & Mrs. Smith was a bad bitch. Angelina Jolie was a super spy in that flick, but her character still didn't have ANYTHING on Maleficent. This dark fantasy tells us the side of the story we didn't get to hear in Disney's 1959 animated classic Sleeping Beauty.
Into The Woods
This movie has Meryl Streep, need I say more? Inspired by your favorite Grimm Brothers' fairy tales, Into The Woods tells the story of a couple unable to have children because an evil (albeit glamorous AF) witch put a curse on them.
Muppets Most Wanted
What could possibly make the Muppets any more amazing? Try Tina Fey and Ricky Gervais. Plus, a whole slew of celebrity cameos. In Muppets Most Wanted, Kermit and the gang find themselves the victims of a criminal mastermind. If his plot succeeds, it could ruin the Muppets forever!
Lightning McQueen is back in the third installment of the Cars franchise. This time, he's up against high tech race cars and must fight to prove he's still the best race car in the game.
