At this point, it’s common knowledge that Disney pretty much rules the world. Between its ownership of huge franchises such as Marvel and Star Wars and its new streaming service, Disney+, the massive company has the hottest content you can find on the big screen. There used to be a lot of popular Disney movies on Netflix, but now the list is dwindling.

However, there are still several amazing options for Netflix subscribers—at least for now, until there’s a final Disney+ purge. Here, in no particular order, are the best Disney movies on Netflix you can watch in 2019.

Top 10 Disney movies on Netflix

1) Coco (2017)

2) Christopher Robin (2018)

Winnie the Pooh is one of the most beloved children’s characters of all time, and last year he hit the big screen as a live-action stuffed toy. Christopher Robin is a joyful, heartwarming story that follows an adult, world-weary Christopher Robin who’s lost the spark of childhood magic—that is, until he finds himself back in the Hundred Acre Wood.

Fourteen years: That’s how long we had to wait for the sequel to (arguably) the best superhero movie of all time.

Now, it’s one of the Disney movies on Netflix, so you can enjoy it in the comfort of your home. Picking up immediately following the events of the first installment, this movie shows the Parr family’s domestic struggles as the super world around them shifts.

6) Saving Mr. Banks (2013)

Any movie starring the likes of Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson just has to be good, and Saving Mr. Banks delivers.

7) Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018)

Wreck-It Ralph was a major hit in 2012, so its sequel faced a lot of pressure. However, Ralph Breaks the Internet was a delightful, witty journey back to the colorful world of Ralph and his friends.

Add it to your list of Disney movies on Netflix for when you’re looking for equal parts adventure and social commentary.
