While Disney+ has gained a reputation as a hub for family-friendly fare (or for adults looking to relive their childhood favorites), it has plenty of movies geared toward adult audiences. From documentaries to darker entries into long-running franchises, Disney+ definitely isn’t just for kids.
Some movies, like “Winnie the Pooh,” really are better for kids. Of course, plenty of Disney+ flicks are perfect for both adults and children, which is part of their charm — they hold up no matter what age you are. (Who’s to say adults can’t love singing along to “Frozen” and “Encanto”?) From gorgeous historic dramas like “Hidden Figures” to old favorites like “The Simpsons Movie” to films that really are better for adults like “Saving Mr. Banks,” there are plenty of options on the streamer for adults to have a quality cinematic experience. And iconic, cult-classic movies like “Sister Act” and “10 Things I Hate About You” have become beloved favorites among movie fans of all ages for a reason. Ahead, check out some of the best movies on Disney+ for adults. There’s plenty of magic to be found — even in movies with an older target audience.
