The best movies on Disney+ right now (April 2022)

After a very robust lineup of new and original films in March, it looks like April is going to be a much slower month. And while that may be a bit disappointing, Disney+ still has something that no other streamer can match: A nearly complete lineup of films from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic Entertainment. And that’s pretty exciting no matter what! It also means that Disney+ has something for the whole family. You just have to find the right film for you. Luckily, we’ve already narrowed down our updated selection of the best movies on Disney+.

If you’ve yet to do so, be sure to check out the Disney Bundle, which will get you Disney+, ESPN+, and a basic Hulu subscription for just $14 a month. You’re essentially getting three streaming services for the price of two, which is one heck of a deal.

If you want to expand your search, we’ve also rounded up the best shows on Disney+ as well as the best movies on Netflix, the best movies on Amazon Prime, and the best movies on Hulu.
