The Top 10 Disney+ Films of 2020

Disney+, Disney’s direct-to-consumer streaming platform, was only a few months old when the coronavirus threw the entire world into disarray. As the landscape changed on an almost daily basis, Disney+ became the most important element of the vast company’s portfolio. Disney+ became a place where new offerings, originally intended for theatrical exhibition, could be shown to a potentially wider audience without losing any of its inherent specialness. Just think about the size and scope of what movies premiered on Disney+ this year – a new Pixar animated marvel, a massively hyped Broadway performance, two musical documentaries by pop music’s reigning queens, and one of the bigger live-action adaptations of the company’s animated classics all made their debut alongside a robust line-up of movies that were already intended for the platform. It was truly an embarrassment of riches. And for everyone who was feeling alone and scared, it gave a welcome reprieve from the horrors of the outside world. Disney+ did the impossible: it brought magic to quarantine.

Twitter Mocks Disney After Warner Bros. Sends 2021 Movies to HBO Max at No Extra Cost to Subscribers

Twitter users are mocking Mulan in response to Warner Bros. sending its 2021 movies slate to the HBO Max streaming service without any additional cost to subscribers. After Disney delayed its live-action Mulan remake, pushing its theatrical release from March to July and then to August amid the coronavirus pandemic, the big-budgeted blockbuster released on Disney+ in September as the first title offered through its Premier Access model.

If You Haven't Watched It Already, Mulan Is Now Free On Disney+

Mulan was one of the most affected films by the pandemic, moving release dates many times before ultimately coming to Disney+ as a "Premium Add-On" a couple of months ago. After releasing digitally and on Blu-ray the last couple of weeks, the subscriber's to Disney+ as of today can now watch Mulan free with their subscription with no added cost. Here is What our own Kaitlyn Booth had to say about the film: "Mulan is the best of the live-action remakes so far, so the fact that it is always going to have the specter of "straight to PVOD" hanging over its head is a shame. This cast and crew put out a great movie that is absolutely worth the price. We all know what will happen if this fails; the blame will be put on the fact that this is a female-directed, female-focused, and POC leading that failed and not just a possible misstep when it comes to market demand."
