I have to say that Disney Plus is becoming one of my favorite streaming platforms right now. Their library of classics and additions for new originals makes it a great choice when looking for movies and other content to stream. Since the start of the pandemic, we’ve been having a family movie night and we had the opportunity to screen Disney Plus’ newest original movie Flora & Ulysses.
It was funny, filled with all kinds of characters, and my whole family enjoyed the whole movie. There are a few things to unpack in the movie but in the end the theme of family and heroes being there when you need them where the two I liked the most. There’s even an unlike friendship that helps two characters grow and that was also rewarding to watch.
