For the Kids & For the Adults: How Everyone Can Enjoy Disney+

Adam Fay,

After spending several months being completely addicted to Disney+, one thing has become clear: This really is a Streaming App that caters to everyone. Sure, we all knew it was a goldmine for kids, but we’ve quickly come to realise that it is also an absolute treasure chest for adults too.

In fact, we think we’ve come up with a great new party game to test the theory.

The rules are simple; Choose a story subject, any subject you want. We think we can suggest a corresponding Disney+ title that will match for both adults and kids.

Feel like a “laugh-out-loud comedy about a dysfunctional family?” Too easy. Kids will love Cheaper By the Dozen, Adults can try Arrested Development.

How about “a medical drama with a light-hearted touch featuring a strong female lead?” ok, that’s specific, but kids should check out Doogie Kamealoha, M.D (an update of the beloved Doogie Howser, M.D from the late 80s) while adults simply can’t go past the always reliable and enduring, Greys Anatomy.

No matter how random or obscure the story, we think we can provide suggestions to suit both young and old. You may just be surprised at how similar some of these movies and shows are.

Don’t believe us? Check out these examples we’ve come up with…

The Incredibles
