Whether it’s classic movies from the collection or brand new Disney movies that come exclusively early to Netflix there’s truly something for everybody.

Below is just our favorite ten Disney movies streaming on Netflix US.

10. The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

Written by Tim Burton and Michael McDowell, ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ has been a classic since 1993. The Animated Family film follows Jack Skellington, who is the ‘Pumpkin King’ of Halloween Town, a gruesome, dark, and ghoul-filled town. But Jack starts to get sick of all the doom and gloom, and after discovering the magical Town of Christmas, he is filled with a new found joy and attempts to spread it to his fellow residents in Halloween Town. The film is filled with very catchy musical numbers and is definitely one of the more memorable holiday animated classics.

9. Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016)

Already a beloved story, this movie is the sequel to the 2010 film Alice in Wonderland. Based on the characters created by Lewis Carroll in 1865, Mia Wasikowska stars as Alice. After slipping through a mirror, she finds herself back in Wonderland and among her old friends. Upon learning the Mad Hatter ( Johnny Depp) slipped into a desperate sadness after losing his family, she steals the Chronosphere from Time (Sacha Baron Cohen) to travel into the past and try to bring him happiness once again. The movie is bright and filled with whimsical action.

8. Pete’s Dragon (2016)

Robert Redford stars as a carpenter who lives deep in the forest of the Pacific Northwest. For years he has been regaling children with stories of a mysterious dragon who peacefully lives among them, much to the chagrin of his daughter (Bryce Dallas Howard), who herself is a forest ranger. But a chance encounter with an orphan found rooted deep in the timberland makes her think her father’s tall tales may just be real.

7. Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)

The first film in what would become a huge Disney franchise, this movie is based on the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction at Disney theme parks. Johnny Depp stars as Captain Jack Sparrow, a drunken pirate who is quite unacceptable, even by pirate standards. And that’s really saying something. Having lost both his ship and his crew, one evening he staggers into Port Royal in the Caribbean. When the town is assailed, he teams with a local blacksmith (Orlando Bloom) to rescue the kidnapped Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) from the cursed crew of the Black Pearl, a terrible bunch led captained by Hector Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush). Did I mention they also become undead skeletons at night?

6. Disney’s The BFG

Steven Spielberg brings to life this Roald Dahl classic novel. Plagued by insomnia, young orphan Sophie spends her nights awake reading. One night at the witching hour, she spots something most unusual in her neighborhood—a giant. The giant, not being able to risk leaving the girl now that he has been seen, scoops her up and takes her with him on what would turn out to be quite an adventure.
