Finding Nemo / Finding Dory
Whether you enjoy a good animation film or fall in love with the beautiful stories that fill your heart, Finding Nemo is a classic that you are bound to enjoy with your kids.
What’s more, you can easily turn this movie into a binge or series, by following it up with the recently released sequel - Finding Dory and finish the night with some ice cream that your kids enjoy! Doesn’t that sound like the perfect movie night?

While the movies do come with a risk of your kids exploring their mischievous side, it is truly worth it!
The New Age Disney Films
Okay, this is not the name of a movie, but when it comes to Disney, naming just one movie does not work. You either go all out or know nothing about it at all! While the Disney classics like Snow White, The Little Mermaid and others are still reliable, the new age Disney movies are breaking the barriers and bringing out stories that are soulful and enjoyable at the same time!
From the adventures of Elsa and Anna in Frozen or Moana and of course the Live Action version of everything from The Lion King to Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin, there are various Disney movies that your kids need to see right away!
While these are just some of our favourites, the options are truly endless.
