Disney + Category Rankings

The rankings from best to worst of the different Disney + categories

Jacob DeOrnellas, Reporter

Disney+ released to the United States on Nov 12, and has come with five main categories to get into: Marvel, Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, and National Geographic. With the streaming service gaining more popularity around the nation, many people might want to know what category to get into first. Here is my list of the Disney+ categories from best to worst. 


Who doesn’t love superheroes? The Marvel category features all of the movies that have been made by the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe.) The category also features Marvel shows that aren’t available on other streaming services or cable services. Some of these shows are Agent Carter, Runaways, and Ultimate Spiderman. Some upcoming shows are Loki, The Falcon, and the Winter Soldier. I’ve been on the MCU train ever since it officially started in 2008 and have loved every movie that went into theaters.  


Pixar was always a better animation studio. Movies such as The Incredibles, Wall-E, and Toy Story are some of my favorite animated movies and they were created by the Pixar animation studio. Also, when it comes to animated movies, Disney is pretty repetitive, whereas Pixar movies are more diverse.  I would rather watch a movie about a superhero family than a movie about a growing princess. Pixar movies were more involved with my childhood than any other category involved with Disney+.


Disney was another major part of my childhood, but movies like Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast didn’t impact me as much as movies from Pixar, like Toy Story. Disney doesn’t have a lot of movies that appeal to me as much as the above categories, but some movies like Mulan and Aladdin saved it for me. 

Star Wars

Star Wars is probably very interesting and I would probably enjoy it. The only reason why it’s so low on the list is that I’ve never seen all of the Star Wars movies and have not been able to see the full story. A galaxy of many planets and creatures with wars between the Rebels and the Empire does sound intriguing. 

National Geographic

I don’t enjoy watching animals on a television screen. If I wanted to see and learn more about animals and their ways of living and habitats, then I would just go to the zoo. I like movies with deep stories, and National Geographic does not provide that, but the other rankings do.
