Of all the companies to enter the streaming wars, Disney has significant advantages with Disney+. It can draw from a deep vault of its own animated and live-action movies and from popular shows on its own cable networks — as well as from company properties like Marvel and Star Wars. And that’s not counting the platform’s slate of original TV shows and movies.

That’s a lot of material: nearly 500 films and 7,500 TV episodes at the time of its debut. Below is our guide to the 50 best titles on Disney+, arranged in reverse chronological order with an eye toward variety. As the service continues to build its catalog, this list will change too.

Here are our lists of the best movies and TV shows on Netflix, the best of both on Hulu and the best movies on Amazon Prime Video.

On her first day in the Oval Office, President Elena Cañero-Reed gets a copy of the diary she started writing as a sixth-grader, with a reminder from her mother to remember her roots. Although the “Jane the Virgin” star Gina Rodriguez puts in guest appearances as the adult Elena, most of this bright comedy-drama takes place in flashback, with a particularly bright 12-year-old Cuban-American (Tess Romero) getting put through the adolescent paces. The path to the White House winds through lunchroom drama and getting used to mom’s new boyfriend.

But the new episodes are tightly constructed and mostly clever, with segments casting Miss Piggy as a temperamental influencer, the Swedish Chef as an inept cooking-show host and Kermit the Frog as a celebrity interviewer. Even when a bit falls flat, “Muppets Now” whisks along efficiently into the next one.
