8 Movies On Disney+ That Are Secretly For Adults
Throwback movie night, anyone? When the streaming service first launched last November, the main appeal of Disney+ was its wide selection of animated films that many of us enjoyed years ago. Since then, users of the platform have come to realize that there's also an awesome selection of movies on Disney+ that adults will absolutely love.
No other streaming service out there gives you the opportunity to have a Star Wars movie marathon or watch almost every single film from the Marvel Cinematic Universe in chronological order. It's easy to overlook Disney+ when you're on the hunt for something to watch, but if you take a look through the app's content catalogue, you may find yourself pleasantly surprised.
On top of the awesome selection, Disney's streaming service has also mentioned that they don't plan on reducing their streaming quality in Canada as other apps have done this month, which makes for a more enjoyable experience for you at home.
No matter if you're in the mood to laugh your way through a cheesy romantic comedy, get lost in a magical world of fantasy and fiction, or even take a trip back in time to the early 2000s, your options are endless and just waiting to be streamed by you during a free trial.
