Another among the initial Disney+ originals, Togo informs truth tale of Leonhard Seppala as well as his sled canine, for which the film takes its name, especially throughout an unsafe run where he endured extreme weather in order to provide medicine to Nome, Alaska throughout an epidemic.

But, also if you’re not the greatest follower of pooches, celebrity Willem Dafoe accepts his duty as well as brings this real tale to light.

Lin-Manuel Miranda in Disney+'s Hamilton

Hamilton (2020)

“I am not throwing away my shot!”

I’m sure that during summer 2020 you heard that phrase all over when Hamilton released on Disney+. This filmed stage musical shows the story of Alexander Hamilton, one of America’s founding fathers, through his life’s story, and the key details that we might not know about.

The musical became iconic for a reason. The music is great, which so many fans love, written brilliantly by Lin-Manuel Miranda, and acted to perfection. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve sung Daveed Diggs’ version of “What’d I Miss?” The songs are so catchy, and even if you’re not a big fan of history, you’ll be dancing out of your seat in no time with this film.

Wolfgang Puck in Wolfgang.

Wolfgang (2021)

Okay, I might be a little biased towards this film, but that’s only because I love cooking so much, and everyone deserves to know this man’s story. Wolfgang is all about the legendary chef and personality, Wolfgang Puck, from his start in the culinary industry to his rough past back home in Austria, to how he built his food empire.

Wolfgang is one of those documentaries where I actually feel like I learned something valuable at the end. Wolfgang Puck basically started out with nothing and worked his way up in the industry, hoping that his skills shined above the rest, and now he’s changed the food industry in America and across the world forever. The documentary shows every part of his life and really lets you into his head about how he succeeded. It’s honestly one of the best documentaries that Disney+ has done so far.

Olivia Rodrigo: Driving Home 2 U (2022) 

In this documentary about the making of the famous album, “Sour” by Olivia Rodrigo, Olivia Rodrigo: driving home 2 u follows the young singer on a road trip where she heads back to Salt Lake City, where she started writing the famous album in the first place. 

Let’s be honest, all of us were belting out “Drivers License” when it released, alongside the entire album. As someone who is a fan of Rodrigo’s music, I really enjoyed this movie, from seeing how long it took her to write these songs to the production aspect to everything else, and all in all, it’s really such an inspiring story about a young woman who took her heartache and made it into something so much better. It’ll make you feel many feelings if you’re a fan of her songs, so be sure to check this one out.

Chip N’ Dale: Rescue Rangers (2022)

They might be tiny, but boy are they mighty! Chip N’ Dale: Rescue Rangers follows the titular iconic Disney characters, Chip and Dale, on a new adventure starting a detective agency together, going into missions that truly test not only their ability as a team, but their ability to solve crimes. 

Chip N’ Dale: Rescue Rangers is – and I can’t believe I’m saying this – one of the best animated films of 2022. I didn’t expect much going into it, but it’s so funny and so well done and I love all of the ridiculous moments of absurdity and the references to pop culture that are done so well. Also, the Chip N’ Dale: Rescue Rangers cast is something of dreams, with both Andy Samberg and John Mulaney voicing the chipmunks. You really can’t get better than this. And there’s so much more to watch after.

The main stars of Clouds.

Clouds (2020)

With a list of the best films to watch on Disney+, I have to include at least one tearjerker – and I mean a serious tearjerker. Clouds, based on the novel called “Fly a Little Higher: How God Answered a Mom’s Small Prayer in a Big Way,” is the story of Zach Sobiech, a high-schooler with a great personality, but after a few weeks into his senior year, he finds out serious information that is going to change his life forever.

I’m going to be honest – Clouds is one of those films where if you’re looking to cry, it’s right there. The emotional impact, alongside the great acting of Fin Argus, Sabrina Carpenter and so many others really paints a beautiful yet heartbreaking picture. Sometimes, we just need to be in our feels. And, that’s what Clouds provides.

Hollywood Stargirl (2022)

Starring Grace VanderWaal, Hollywood Stargirl is the sequel to the 2020 film, Stargirl, and follows the same character as she moves across the country when her mother is offered a job there, as she navigates this new world of friends as well as learning to embrace her creative side among the stars of the world. 

If you haven’t seen the original Stargirl (opens in new tab), I highly recommend you watch it, especially for a family film night, as both the sequel and the original movie have plenty of fun music sequences, and are great teen movies that explore great coming-of-age topics that I think everyone would enjoy. It’s a fun film, and Grace VanderWaal is always enjoyable to watch.

Joe Gardner in Soul

Soul (2020)

There’s just something about Soul that makes it one of my all-time favorite Pixar films. Soul tells the story of Joe Gardner, a jazz pianist who finally gets the shot of his lifetime to play in his dream jazz club, when tragedy strikes. Now, it’s up to him, with the help of some new friends, to get through it.

I’m not going to spoil a single thing for this film. If you haven’t seen Soul yet, watch it. It’s one of Pixar’s best, in my opinion. The story itself is so inspirational and emotional, teaching you about the simple joys of life, how maybe we don’t need to have a crazy purpose and we can just live, looking forward to the next day. The animation is stunning, the tale amazing, and the voice cast, starring Jamie Foxx and Tina Fey, takes the cake. It’s one of the best films of 2020, and definitely one of the best Disney+ has right now to watch.

While these are just some of the best original films Disney+ has to offer, there are plenty of options out there still, like Taylor Swift’s Folklore, or even Flora & Ulysses. Hopefully, this gave you an idea of some of the great ones to watch. Now, if you don’t mind me, I’m going to go watch Luca again. I’m going to be saying “Silenzio Bruno!” for years now.
