The Best Movies on Disney+ Right Now (November 2021)

What’s more important to you: quantity or quality? Other streaming services may have more movies than Disney+, but the House of Mouse has a pretty high batting average when it comes to films. Even before the 21st century, Walt Disney Pictures was a major studio with beloved animated classics and live-action movies. But in the last two decades, the addition of Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars, National Geographic Entertainment, and the films of 20th Century Studios has transformed Disney into an even bigger force in entertainment. That combination has made Disney+ into one of the elite streaming services, with an amazing lineup of movies to choose from. And if you need help deciding what to watch next, then simply check out our updated list of the best movies on Disney+ right now.
