Lemonade Mouth

In Lemonade Mouth, a group of unlikely friends meet in detention and form a band to create a soundtrack of early 2000s style pop. The cast, led by Disney Channel icon Bridget Mendler, showcases each character with unique and likeable qualities. The movie presents events that are unrealistic yet still relatable because most understand the trials and tribulations of being in high school. This is the main reason that Disney Channel Original movies are so appealing to Gen-Z, and Lemonade Mouth exemplifies this theme beautifully.

Halloweentown

Disney+ offers many holiday classics, such as Home Alone, but Halloweentown is easily the best holiday movie featured, though it isn’t a winter movie. This film is a magnificent tale of family and individuality. It embodies the spirit of Halloween with lovable protagonists in a spooky town of monsters and witches, creating a story fit for all ages. Featuring the late Debbie Reynolds, the cast is fantastic and portrays the characters with warmth and originality. It’s not only a great movie for the Halloween season, but for anytime a feel good movie is necessary.
