The 10 best movies on Disney Plus Canada you might not have watched already

There are plenty of movies on Disney Plus Canada, and chances are that you've seen most of them. Pirates of the Caribbean? Old news. Star Wars? You could quote it in your sleep.

So for Canadians that are looking for new movies to watch in isolation, these are my picks for underrated movies to binge on Disney Plus right now.

Million Dollar Arm

All sports leagues are cancelled right now, but this feel-good film about a baseball scout recruiting players from India is a pretty good replacement. Even more interesting? It's based on a true story.

Elephant

This nature documentary follows African elephant Shani and her son on a journey across the Kalahari Desert. It's a little too fluffy at times, but it's narrated by Meghan Markle, so it's basically a must-see for anyone obsessed with the Royal Family.

Free Solo

This unbelievable documentary follows rock climber Alex Honnold as he attempts to become the first person to ever free solo climb El Capitan — no ropes involved.

Escape to Witch Mountain

This classic film follows two young orphans with psychic powers as they attempt to escape the clutches of evil millionaire Aristotle Bolt. And there's a sequel, so you can opt for a double feature.

10 Things I Hate About You

A modern Shakespeare adaptation starring Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles — what's not to love? Even if you have seen the movie, it's worth re-watching just to remind yourself how Kat Stratford showed us all what an early feminist icon looks like.

Breaking2

Regardless of whether you're a runner, weightlifter or proud couch potato, you won't be able to look away from Nike's attempt to break the two-hour record for completing a marathon. It's a fascinating insight into athlete culture — and what it takes to be the best.

The Parent Trap

Also known as Lindsay Lohan's acting debut, this movie follows a pair of identical twins that meet at a summer camp and decide to switch places in an effort to reunite their parents.

The Parent Trap also scarred a legion of young girls with its iconic ear piercing scene, so it's worth watching just to see what all the fuss is about.

Onward

If you haven't yet had the pleasure of watching this animated comedy starring Tom Holland and Chris Pratt — a duo more iconic than PB & Jelly — as teenage elf brothers, then do so. Immediately.

Eight Below

Admittedly, this emotional film about a man and his loyal team of sled dogs surviving in the treacherous cold of Antarctica might have you tearing up, but it's worth seeing.

Plus, Eight Below was partly filmed in British Columbia, so you can admire Canada's snow-capped landscape as you watch it.

Miracle Landing on the Hudson

You've seen Sully, but have you seen the Disney documentary about the US Airways flight that made an emergency landing on the Hudson River against all odds? No? Then add it to the list.
