Disney Plus Just Unleashed An Epic Twitter List Of Movies We Had Totally Forgotten About

Disney’s $7 rival to Netflix is almost here and Disney fans (plus Star Wars, Pixar, Marvel, and more) are basically freaking out at the idea of the platform. So today’s news of the lineup – all 645 titles – has sent the Internet into overdrive.

News that Disney+ will be streaming its own big-budget movies plus exclusive shows from various outlets and its own studios, along with much loved Disney classics has us freaking out too.

Here are some of the most exciting titles we’re already mentally queuing up for launch day (which is November 12th btw).

Disney announced the titles (all 645 of them) that will be available when the network launches its Disney+ service on November 12.

Disney has called it the future of the company: Disney Plus. It’s the entertainment giant’s upcoming streaming service for almost everything it creates. It’ll be the exclusive home to stream theatrical blockbusters from Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar and Disney’s own studios — Avengers: Endgame, for example, will be available to stream on Dec. 11. Plus, Disney is ramping up a slate of original shows and movies based on those brands and others.

While the streamer is set to be the home to the House of Mouse’s new slate of original content, from a handful of Marvel and Star Wars shows, including The Mandalorian, and reboots of popular nostalgia properties like Lizzie McGuire, it’s also meant to be a one-stop-shop where fans can revisit classic and underrated movies from throughout Disney history.

While Disney+ won’t be releasing every single title from the coveted Disney Vault on its launch date, hundreds films and series will be available for subscribers’ viewing pleasure.

With less than a month until its launch, Disney Plus has been offering preorders in the US — some with discounts — and started touting its library of hundreds of movies. 

Overall, Disney Plus will cost $7 a month in the US, or $70 (about $5.83 a month) if you prepay for a full year. That monthly rate is about half the price of HBO Now and a big discount compared with Netflix. And because Disney Plus will have four simultaneous streams and perks like 4K and Dolby Atmos, its $7 subscription compares most closely with Netflix’s $16-a-month tier. 

Disney isn’t taking the launch lightly – they made the announcement in a 300 thread long tweet.

The super long Twitter thread highlighted many of the classics that would be coming to the platform (including Cinderella) along with several of the network’s new shows. And people are freaking out. The tweet has more than 65,000 likes and has been viewed more than 5 million times.

From old Disney classics…

Among this immense catalog of Disney+ content you’ll find plenty of movIes and TV shows like Star Wars, The Simpsons, Pixar, and Marvel, as well as new Disney Plus-exclusive shows like The Mandalorian. And even though the Twitter thread contains 629 items, Disney said this wasn’t the end, as the thread ended with: “We did that. And the announcements aren’t even over yet… Stay tuned for more soon!”

To major modern blockbusters…

Who knows what else the Mouse House plans to add to the Disney Plus catalog. Some of the most iconic films of all time are on this list, and some very obscure titles are as well. But there are also some notable movies that won’t be on Disney+ at launch, including most of the MCU.

The streaming platform will feature original content as well, including shows like The Mandalorian.

It’s got Diego Luna. Say no more. We’ll be streaming this from 12:01 am.

As the list was being made public, some Twitter users took it upon themselves to poke fun at Disney’s uber-expansive inventory of content.

Seeing all of these classics and all of these modern titles, including franchises many people didn’t even realize were owned by Disney, caused people a lot of shock.

Lots of people accused Disney of basically owning the world and all the entertainment options available. And with their impressive (read: epic) catalogue of movies and TV shows, it’s hard to argue against that.

But this reaction basically summed up the overwhelming vibes surrounding Disney’s accouncement.

Regardless of how you feel about Disney’s borderline monopoly on the world’s entertainment, you have to admit how exciting it is to reconnect with some of your childhood favorites.

“Elena of Avalor” is coming to an end. The show offered people the first Latina Disney princess and that kind of representation is so vital and so important. Three seasons later, the show is coming to an end and the final show is going to change everything.

“Elena of Avalor” changed representation in Disney and it was a long time coming.

Elena gave Disney fans their first Latina Disney princess. For years, Disney was facing pressure to start to include more characters of color. “The Princess and The Frog” was Disney’s first answer to that call and “Elena of Avalor” came after. Finally seeing someone who represented Latinos was a reality.

The final season is going to be the longest so that Elena could get the finale she deserves.

“It has been a tremendous honor for me to bring Disney’s first Latina princess to the screen,” Gerber told The Hollywood Reporter. “Everyone involved with Elena of Avalor, from the creative team to the unbelievable cast and crew, felt the responsibility to get this right. We created the character of Elena with the hope that she would be a role model, not just for young Latina girls watching, but for all children to be able to see what a true leader looks like.”

This show was so impactful, far beyond just the children that watched it.

“From the beginning, Elena’s story arc has been that she would one day become queen,” Gerber told The Hollywood Reporter. “With the series finale, the creative team has been able to bring Elena’s story to the thrilling conclusion that we always envisioned. I can’t wait for viewers to see the final chapter in Elena’s epic adventure.”

Elena’s legacy within the Latino community is going to last forever, that’s for sure.

From all of the “Elena of Avalor” fans, thank you. This show gave us a chance to see our cultures reflected and celebrated with the Disney magic behind it. What a special moment in entertainment this is.

Demi Lovato Laughing At Herself While Rewatching ‘Camp Rock’: how awkward am I?

Quite a lot has changed in the years that have passed since Disney Channel made the 2008 hit Camp Rock. For one, the star of the film (Demi Lovato) is much more than a former Micky-head and is now a household name amongst way more than the fanbase she held at the time. And according to recently dropped tracks and music videos, Lovato no longer hangs tight with her former co-stars the Jonas Brothers.

Still, all of these years later, and some years of growing up, Lovato seems to be able to look back at her big starring role and laugh.

Lovato took a stroll down memory lane this past weekend to watch the 2008 Disney Channel movie and share her reactions on Instagram Story.
