Well, winter doesn't officially start until December 21, however, it seems to have already arrived for many of us. We can lie to ourselves as much as we want but the best way to cope with the cold temps, dark days, and for some of us endless amounts of snow, is finding inside activities to get us through the hibernation months. We already do all we can to provide you with all the comfortable cozy products to keep you content during the cold times, but we thought it would be nice to give some pointers on what to watch on the newly launched Disney Plus! If you don't feel like paying for yet another streaming service, we understand, however; keep in mind Disney Plus has a 7-day free trial! That’s plenty of time to watch our entertaining recommendations. 😉
Must-See New Show: Mandalorian
Following the epic tales of Jango and Boba Fett, the next Warrior in the Star Wars Universe emerges. The Mandalorian takes place before the emergence of the First Order and after the fall of the Empire, placing in between episodes VI and VII films. The show follows the travels of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic. The Mandalorian has a sort of western space vibe while maintaining it's iconic Star Wars look and feels. The only problem with the show is you have to wait for a new episode weekly, which is probably a good thing for most of our social lives.
Right In The Feels Animation: UP
Pixar really plays on every emotion in the spectrum on this one. The tale of a sweet old man named Carl who simply wants to escape the hustle and bustle of his gentrifying life. Carl takes matters into his own hands with a lucrative idea involving his house, thousands of balloons and an almost infinite amount of helium. The one thing Carl didn't count on was a budding relationship with an ambitious cub scout by the name of Russell. The two have wonderful chemistry regardless of their age difference and their adventures weave together a wonderful tale involving long lost explorers, exotic locations, and even talking Dogs. You may want to have a Kleenex box close by while watching this one, it will play your emotions like a violin.
Action Comedy Combo: Guardians Of The Galaxy
Action, CGI, Chris Pratt, and a kick a**sound track! What more could you want from a Marvel Movie? A talking raccoon? It's got one of those too! The story follows Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) as he battles his way through the universe fighting off bounty hunters and the powerful villain Ronan. Peter and his star-studded group of misfits partake in countless battles entwined with moments of humor that are sure to entertain you all the way through. Make sure to enjoy the soundtrack! It's a great one to save on your Spotify account.
Nostalgic Remake Done Right: Dumbo
Disney has had multiple remakes and in our opinion, this one, in particular, was hit out of the park! An updated take on the original classic, Dumbo is a hit for any age group. The storyline is inspirational for the youth audience, the visuals are remarkable for the young adult populous, and the fact that it’s a remake from 1941, the older generations have to feel some sort of nostalgia while viewing an old childhood favorite. Oh, and did we mention the remake was directed by the one and only Tim Burton! Take our word for it and add this fantastical tale to your weekend watch list.
Disney Classic: Fantasia
Fantasia was released in 1940, and it is just as epic as the day it came out! This experimental, musical inspired animation a very exotic project for Disney in the 40s. This one might pair best with candles and a nice glass of red wine because it's best to sit back and let your imagination wander while experiencing this flic. The story is not complex, the music is splendid, and the animation is one of a kind!
