The 10 best movies to watch on Disney Plus for Christmas
For heartwarming Christmas movies that sparkle with the holiday spirit, head to – you guessed it –. This is where the Muppets, Santas, and the Nightmares Before Christmas gather around the fireplace to drink eggnog and be entertained.
Let’s put together the best Christmas movies Disney Plus has to offer.
Anna Kendrick in a Christmas movie. If that doesn’t sell enough, Bill Hader plays the anxious brother for her bright and bubbly Noelle, daughter of Santa Claus and bearer of the spirit of Christmas to all. When Santa Claus dies, it’s Nick Kringle’s turn to take over from Santa. Instead, he flies off on a reindeer. It’s up to Noelle to get her brother back to the North Pole in time for the big day. Kendrick channels all the charming fishy high jinks out of the water as she cruises the world south of the pole.
Iron man 3
We’re starting with Iron Man 3. Yes, really. It’s a Christmas movie, because Marvel published a 1,800 word article telling you it’s a Christmas movie. “It’s hard to discuss the setting for the holidays, the gifts, repenting for the mistakes of the past, and Tony’s desire to be better – not just for himself, but also for the people around him.” The film is also about Iron Man facing a nationwide campaign of terrorism in the United States. Happy Holidays!
Frozen 1 and 2
Just ignore this option if you are a parent who always experiences withdrawals from endless repetitions of:
Do you want to build a snowman?
Come on, let’s go play!
I do not see you anymore
Walk out the door
It’s like you’re gone
If that didn’t destroy you, enjoy Frozen 1 and 2.
Miracle on 34th Street (1947)
Let’s go old fashioned with the purest of Christmas movies, which means we’re a far cry from the Arnold Schwarzenegger ’90s Christmas “comedy” Jingle All The Way. Miracle on 34th Street is about a Santa Claus department store pretending to be the real Santa Claus. Phrases like – “Oh, Christmas isn’t just a day. It’s a state of mind” – will put you in a magical Christmas coma for 96 beautiful minutes.
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
What better way to spend Christmas than by watching the source-true Disney Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Strange Heat of Mr. Tumnus by James McAvoy. (McAvoy addressed the phenomenon on SNL, in case you missed it.) The only downside to the adventure about four British kids finding a wardrobe that leads to a snowy fantasy world – is that it doesn’t get more fun special effects before and after photos.
While you were sleeping
A 90s romantic comedy by Sandra Bullock awarded three out of four stars by legendary film critic Roger Ebert. What else do you really need to know? (In case you want to know more: While You Were Sleeping is about a woman who saves a man’s life on Christmas Day and then, while in a coma, falls in love with her brother. complications ensue.)
Alone at home
Snoop Dog paid homage to Home Alone in a music video with lyrics such as “Rollin ‘down the street smokin’ indo / Sippin ‘on gin and juice / Laid back (with my mind on my money and my money on my mind). ” Don’t look at that, watch a cute afterlife Kevin McCallister (a cute afterlife Macaulay Culkin) defending his home from burglars on Christmas.
The nightmare before Christmas
Some of you might want to watch some dark fantasy for Christmas (hi). Jack Skellington, the king of “Halloween Town” stumbles through a portal to “Christmas Town”. There’s more creativity in that premise alone than the entirety of, say, ABC’s 1979 special crossover Rudolph and Frosty’s Christmas in July. (No one knows why this takes place in July.) You choose.
Another Christmas movie starring a ridiculously adorable kid. Its sound premise: a man accidentally kills Santa Claus and has to take his place. It sounds like a horror movie, but Santa Claus is all about the holiday cheer and features jokes for adults and kids alike. Only the scrooges will find Tim Allen in a big, horrible costume.
The Muppets Christmas Carol
If you have to relive A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, do it with puppets and Michael Caine.
