Watch These Movies in January On Disney+

As we start a new month, new shows and movies are being added to Disney+. If you are looking for what to watch during these winter months, we have some great options for you on Disney+.

Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who!

This Blue Sky Studios animated film tells the story of Horton, who is an elephant that must dodge his pesky neighbours and find a safe place to keep the dust speck, which contains a microscopic community of creatures known as The Whos.  It’s also set in the same universe as the Grinch.

Horton Hears A Who arrived on Disney+ on Friday January 1st.

The Wolverine

The 20th Century Studios movie returns to Disney+ in the US this month.  The Wolverine returns to face his ultimate nemesis in an action packed battle that takes him to modern day Japan; an epic fight that will change him forever.  More Hugh Jackman is never a bad thing. The Wolverine arrived on Disney+ on Friday January 1st.


A soft-hearted bull, Ferdinand, escapes from Casa del Toro after his father does not return from the bullfight. However, due to a turn of events, he is taken back to the place he escaped from.  This is another addition onto Disney+ from Blue Sky Studios and the bull is played by former WWE champion John Cena.

Coming to Disney+ on Friday January 8th.

Mary Poppins Returns (US/Canada)

Now an adult with three children, bank teller Michael Banks learns that his house will be repossessed in five days unless he can pay back a loan. His only hope is to find a missing certificate that shows proof of valuable shares that his father left him years earlier. Just as all seems lost, Michael and his sister receive the surprise of a lifetime when Mary Poppins — the beloved nanny from their childhood — arrives to save the day and take the Banks family on a magical, fun-filled adventure.   While it might not be a touch on the original movie (which you’ll find on Disney+), you should never judge a book by its cover. Coming to Disney+ on Friday January 15th.

Isle of Dogs

This animated feature from Searchlight Pictures is a bit different to your usual film.  When, by executive decree, all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to a vast garbage-dump called Trash Island, 12-year-old Atari sets off alone in a miniature Junior-Turbo Prop and flies across the river in search of his bodyguard-dog, Spots. There, with the assistance of a pack of newly-found mongrel friends, he begins an epic journey that will decide the fate and future of the entire Prefecture. 

Isle Of Dogs is coming to Disney+ on Friday 15th January.


When Mary, a 17-year-old teenager, shrinks in size, she discovers a world inhabited by strange creatures. Soon, she finds herself reluctantly pulled into a battle between good and evil forces.  Think of this as an animated mix of “Honey, I Shrunk The Kids” and “Avatar”. Epic is coming to Disney+ on Friday January 29th.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
