Updated June 21, 2023 to include Pixar’s Elemental
In case you haven’t heard, Disney Plus is Disney’s new streaming service. Start your free 7 day trial here. There are loads and loads of content available, including all of the movies from Disney Animation studios. Yes, even the ones in the vault. New movies like a live action Version of Lady and the Tramp. New series like The Mandalorian (a Star Wars series). And content from Marvel, Star Wars, and so much in between.
Next, I’ll admit, as an avid Disney movie collector I felt some kind of way about my years and years of movie collecting now becoming… No big deal. However, I’ve realize a couple of things. 1. There is SO much more content than what I own. Beyond the classics and Pixar films. Movies we love like Queen of Katwe, TV shows I grew up on like Lizzie Maguire. And 2. I can totally assist with is giving everyone who is overwhelmed with all this fun family content, a starting place. So consider this your Pixar starting place. Want a starting place for all of the Animated Classics from Snow White to Frozen 2? Go here to this post for the Ultimate Animated Disney Movies Checklist.
I like to collect all of the Disney Animated movies (sequels included, and we’ll come back to that in another post), but I prefer to distinguish between movies from Disney Animation Studios, and movies under the Pixar umbrella. This post today is all about Pixar.
Pixar movies on Disney+
Ready to download the checklist?
They’ve brought us our favorites from Brave and Finding Nemo, to Monsters Inc, Toy Story, A Bug Life and Cars. Many of our family’s favorite movies are in this list.
If you are wondering which Pixar movies are hitting Disney Plus at launch? Well according to this list, and the 3 hour video Disney released, it looks like all of them except Toy Story 4 should be available at launch. Though it should surely be added sometime in the near future, and you can be catching up on any of the other movies you’ve missed in the mean time. Or all of the new streaming content.
As for the Pixar movies coming to Disney Plus at launch, if you’re wondering what order to tackle them all in, I recommend watching them the year they were released. You could pace yourself and watch one a day and finish them all in 3 weeks.
Here’s a list for reference.
|A Bug’s Life||1998|
|Toy Story 2||1999|
|Toy Story 3||2010|
|The Good Dinosaur||2015|
|The Incredibles 2*||2018|
|Toy Story 4*||2019|
You might notice, four movies have a star beside them. These were not in the 3 hour video outlining what will be available on Disney+ at launch. Of course Toy Story 4 and the others coming soon after. Then sometime next year we’ll probably see Onward and Soul, which should arrive on Disney Plus about four months after its home video debut.
