The Mysterious Benedict Society is available exclusively via Disney+. Launched with the first two episodes immediately available, future installments are released each Friday so you can keep up with the latest goings-on in this quirky mystery adventure.

The Society is established by Mr. Benedict, a smart man who is keen to improve the world. That’s because, during a global emergency from a suffering economy and an endless stream of bad news, the evil Mr. Curtain who runs The Institute — a similarly evil school — is sending messages that infiltrate one’s subconscious, making it easy for him to slip negative ideas and thoughts into anyone’s minds. It’s down to Mr. Benedict and his team of four kids to stop such evil plans and save the world, along with reducing the anxiety that’s spreading throughout the globe.

Quirky yet with some very relevant themes, it’s sure to be a hit with both you and your kids, and potentially spark some conversation too.

Disney is arguably the most iconic entertainment brand in the world. The company's original properties and acquired ones combine to produce content that transcends age demographics. Disney has built a brand that's beloved by children, and those children eventually age into adults who introduce their children to the films they loved when they were kids. Disney's animation alone has made it iconic, but in recent years, the company has also acquired some of the biggest pieces of intellectual property there are.

Between its acquisitions of both Marvel and Star Wars, there's a good chance that whatever you love is being shepherded to screens both large and small by Disney. When they launched Disney+, the company was sure to fill it with both those nostalgic animated classics and plenty of new stuff as well. It's meant to be a streaming service for all ages, which is why the selection of movies available there is so diverse. These Disney Plus movies will make you laugh, cry, and rewatch over and over again. Here's a look at 13 of the best movies on Disney+.
