The long awaited sequel to Finding Nemo, Finding Dory, is finally being unleashed upon the world this week. And exciting as it is to return to the world of Dory, Marlin, and Nemo, it's also quite worrisome. Worrisome because Finding Nemo came out way back in 2003, meaning that if you're like me, you probably don't remember what happened in the movie all that well and want to watch it again before seeing Finding Dory. So, is Finding Nemo on Netflix?
Unfortunately, you'll have to look elsewhere for your Nemo fix. The film is not a part of Netflix's streaming library; nor does it belong to any of its competitors like Hulu, Amazon, or HBO. So what's a fish fan to do? Well, you can rent the film online from places like iTunes, YouTube, Google Play, and Amazon for $2.99 in standard definition, or $3.99 in HD. Or you could just outright buy the movie from pretty much any place that sells movies. Those are your options. However, if you're just in the mood for a Disney animated movie and you're determined to find something to watch on Netflix, then I can help you out. Check out these Disney flicks you can watch on Netflix right now.
Probably the best Disney film of the latter half of the '90s, and featuring the most badass Disney Princess ever.
The Hunchback Of Notre Dame
Has there ever been a Disney villain more terrifying than Claude Frollo?
The third entry here from Disney's strong '90s period, this movie probably stands as the definitive telling of the hundred-year-old character's story.
The Emperor’s New Groove
It looks and acts a lot different than most of the other official Disney Animated Classics, but this is one of the funniest films the studio has ever produced.
Lilo & Stitch
Considered the most successful Disney film both critically and commercially in the period between the end of the Disney Renaissance of the '90s and the company's acquisition of Pixar in 2006.
A true classic, and one of only four Disney animated features to come out of the '70s.
The Many Adventures Of Winnie The Pooh
Another '70s Disney feature, this is the film that really put Pooh — one of Disney's most enduring characters — on the map by linking together three previously released short films.
Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
While it may not be completely animated (or completely Disney, the studio released it under their Touchstone label), it's still one of the smartest films the studio has ever produced.
Produced during Disney's subpar early 2000s period, this film was panned critically, but it's still better than most other studios' animated fare.
Another critical flop from the '00s, this 2005 film is notable for being the first non-Pixar CGI film released by Disney — and its failure is largely seen as pushing Disney to purchase Pixar the following year.
Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films Collection
Although Pixar shorts get a lot of attention, Disney Animation puts out some classics, too. You can see the best of them here, including Paperman and Feast, which could both go toe to toe against anything Pixar has done.
Disney Animation Collection Volumes I, II, III, IV
So many classic cartoons in these volumes, like The Three Little Pigs, Mickey and the Beanstalk, and The Prince and the Pauper.
It never reached the iconic status of its predecessor, but it's still worth a glance. If only Netflix had the original version...
Oh wait, Netflix totally has the original! This 1941 feast for the eyes and ears still stands as the artistic high point for Walt Disney.
