It’s finally here, the moment 10 Million subscribers and beyond have been waiting for, the launch of Disney + streaming service. For many this is the opportunity to have the movies and tv series of their childhood streaming in their home and on their phones to take them back to the “Good Old Days” when life was a little more carefree and for others this is a great way to introduce their kids and friends to new movies and entertainment that was released decades ago. Since getting Disney +, my wife and I have watched some classics that include:
- Bedknobs and Broomsticks(1971)
- Monsters University(2013)
- Oliver and Company(1988)
- The Rescuers(1977)
- The Rescuers Down Under(1990)
- The Great Mouse Detective(1986)
- Darby O’Gill and the Little People(1959)
- Once Upon A Mattress(2005)
As you can see we have jumped into a variety of films some that are new to me that I had never heard of before. I think that this platform is providing a great way for people to experience the magic of Disney through this streaming service. Thus far Disney + is proving itself to be the place for Disney nostalgia and is looking to provide plenty of fresh new content as well such as:
- The Mandalorian
- The World According to Jeff Goldblum
- The Imagineering Story
- Marvel’s Hero Project
I started watching The World According to Jeff Goldblum and think the series will be an informative fun watch if you are in the mood for Jeff Goldblum;s take on the world around him. I’m also certain that Encore! Will be a fun time too as Kristen Bell is taking us on a journey to recreate hits from past high school musicals she was apart of. I know that many people are pretty psyched on the Mandalorian because it dives into a bit more of the Star Wars universe and the stories that fans everywhere want to hear. I have yet to watch a full episode but from what I hear if you are a Star Wars fan you won’t want to miss out on watching this series.
Aside from a few launch day glitches I read about, I have had no problems personally with the service. I wish a few things such as Watch History or an easier way to Continue Watching set up on the platform but who knows maybe those features will be added later or deemed not needed for the Disney + audience. I am curious to see what more is added to the platform as far as film and series go as well. Many of the films I have wanted to add to my watchlist say they won’t be available till mid-late 2020 due to agreements with other platforms. I’m curious if the delays in getting all their films and assets onto their platform will cause subscribers to leave for a bit or delay getting subscriptions till all desired streaming is available on the site.
At this time I’d recommend Disney + to anyone who wants a bit of fun nostalgia in their life. The programming on the site is plenty for your needs and beyond. Watching old classics with family and friends is a warm way to spend the next few months of winter.
Are you impressed with Disney +?
