5 More Disney+ Picks To Add To Your Watchlist

Back in April, not long after Disney+ first launched, I shared 10 of my recommendations - the films and TV shows I thought everyone needed to add to their watchlist. Though I can't quite say I turn to it as much as I do Netflix, it's still a brilliant platform and there is such a plethora of things to choose from, you are absolutely spoilt for choice. As we've been using and enjoying Disney+ for over 6 months now, I thought it was about time I shared a few more of my recommendations. Let me know if you've watched any of these too!collage - Sister Act, Frozen 2, The Sound of Music, Onward, Hamilton

The Sound of Music
This film fills my heart with joy. I adore it. I remember watching it a lot when I was younger, though at the time I don't recall loving it quite as much as I do now. I've watched this countless times since we got Disney+ and it's like 3 hours long but to me it just flies by. This was released in 1965 so it's very old now really but it's not lost any of its charm. If you somehow don't know anything about The Sound of Music, it's based on the real life story of the Von Trapp Family singers in the era preceding World War II. Starring Julie Andrews, Maria becomes a governess for a widowed naval captain's seven children and with that she brings a new lease of life into the home aswell a lot of music. It's just a beautiful film.

Frozen 2
I couldn't do another Disney+ picks post and not include Frozen 2. As we couldn't go away like we planned for our anniversary this Summer, we planned a few different things we could do at home and that involved many a movie night. One of the films we watched that week was Frozen 2 and I just don't know how anyone couldn't love it. I think I even prefer it to the first one. In the second film, Elsa travels to the enchanted forests and dark seas beyond Arendelle after hearing a mysterious voice call out to her but it ends up being an unexpected journey of self-discovery. I think the music is amazing (Show Yourself is the stand out song in my opinion) and I love Olaf more than I thought was possible. Did you prefer Frozen 1 or 2?

I was a bit late to the party with this one but what an emotional film! Starring Tom Holland and Chris Pratt, teenage elf brothers Ian and Barley embark on a magical journey to spend one more day with their late father but of course none of it goes quite to plan does it? It's such a heartwarming story and exactly what you'd expect from a Disney movie. The ending made me want to sob. A great one to watch with the family.

Where to even start with Hamilton? George and I were lucky enough to see the show in London on our wedding anniversary in December 2018, a day I will never forget, so we had to watch this as soon as it came onto Disney+. If you're a fan of musicals, you need to watch it! It's the original Broadway production of the award-winning musical which tells the story of Alexander Hamilton. If you haven't heard of Hamilton before or watched it yet, it's quite fast paced and I'd recommend reading up a bit about it before maybe so you don't get lost (when I first listened to the soundtrack I was like what is going on?) but it's just insane. We are huge fans of the soundtrack in this house and having this to watch on Disney+ throughout lockdown filled that musical theatre void that has been there since the West End had to close.

Sister Act
Let's end on another one for the musical fans, Sister Act! I'd only seen parts of this in the past so this Summer I watched both the first Sister Act and the sequel and I LOVED them. Whoopi Goldberg plays Deloris, a singer who is persuaded to go into witness protection as a nun at a convent after she witnesses a murder at work. Completely different to her usual life, she has a bit of trouble adjusting. It's all about sisterhood, friendship and of course music which makes for a really fun watch. I had no idea films like this would be on Disney+, the musical section is definitely my favourite which I'm sure comes as no surprise.

So that's 5 more of my Disney+ picks. I doubt these will become as regular as my Netflix recommendations but every so often it's nice to share things like this, especially with us being kind of limited with what we can do at the moment!

My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough. here is his Email: or call/text him on his WhatsApp +2347012841542

He is also able to cast spell like 1: Lottery 2: Conceive 3: Breakup 4: Divorce 5: Cure for all kinds of diseases and viruses.
