Movies Not On Disney+ – 15 Great Films You Can’t Stream on Disney Plus
When Disney+ launched last week, every member instantly had access to Disney classics that haven’t been out of the mysterious “vault” in years. Nostalgia is a powerful thing. But our society has spoiled us: We’ve been given too many streaming services, too many options for wasting time, and too much content to send us down the rabbit hole of childhood memories. And it only makes us want more.
Once you’ve blown through the list of what is available on Disney+, the next question is: what isn’t there? There’s no way anyone could watch hundreds of Disney titles in one week, but one should never discredit the binging of bored Americans. We’ll save you the trouble of searching with this list of movies not on Disney+.
Avengers: Infinity War
The big Avengers of 2018 with Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, and the rest of the gang can’t hang out with you on Disney+ because they currently live on Netflix. Check back later.
The 2018 sequel to the 2004 hit follows the superhero family in a continuation of where we left them 12 years ago.
Mary Poppins Returns
Mary Poppins is back in the form of Emily Blunt. In 1930s London, the Banks family is dealing with loss and grief. There’s only one woman who can help, and she still has that talking bird-umbrella.
Into the Woods
In 2014, before he brought Mary Poppins back to life, Rob Marshall got together an all-star cast including Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick, and James Cordon to sing Steven Sondheim, and yes, it will get stuck in your head.
George of the Jungle
This might be one of Leslie Mann’s greatest roles to date. She meets and falls in love with a wild jungle man (Brendan Fraser). It’s basically Tarzan, but the main character is a real, non-animated man who takes his real shirt off.
The Jungle Book (1994)
The live-action depiction of Rudyard Kipling’s story takes the beloved 1967 version to new heights (with believable-looking animals, too). If the uncanny valley freaks you out, maybe stay away.
The Mighty Ducks
A treasure of the 1990s, The Mighty Ducks follows a youth hockey team in their story to victory from underdog.
Solo: A Star Wars Story
If you want to see the 2018 film surrounding Han Solo and his space legacy, Disney+ is not the place to go.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi
The Last Jedi faces the same fate as Solo.The latest Star Wars movie in which Carrie Fisher appears and Rey gets a lot more screen time is worth finding on other platforms just for those two elements alone.
Ant-Man and the Wasp
Whoever would have thought Paul Rudd would be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe? As Scott Lang, he fights alongside Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) to save the day.
It was only a matter of time before we got a live-action Aladdin, but you won’t find the famous building-jumping prince and his magic carpet on this screening service yet.
Beauty and the Beast (2017)
Hermione grew up and became Belle in Beauty and the Beast, Emma Thompson filled Angela Lansbury’s shoes as Mrs. Potts, and Dan Stevens died on Downton Abbey only to be resurrected as the Beast. It’s delightful, very real, and not on Disney+.
Toy Story 4
The Toy Story franchise loves to make people weep over nostalgia. The same was true for the fourth movie in the series, but there were also some creepy dolls thrown in there, too. You know, to keep things balanced. Coming out this year, it hasn’t quite made its way to the streaming platform.
Tom Holland stars as Peter Parker, a high school kid who saves the city when he’s not in class. The Avengers also have their eye on him as one of their newest members, but he’s still a little green for the heavy lifting.
Spider-Man: Far From Home
Peter goes on a class trip to Venice with his schoolmates, and of course meets danger there. With the help of Fury, the vacation ends up being a Eurpoean-wide, crime-fighting adventure.
