Trips to the cinema are fun, but sometimes watching the latest blockbuster from the comfort of your own home can be even better!

Each year the desire for quality home entertainment increases as streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime and Disney Plus become more ingrained in our culture.

With so many movies and places to watch them, it can be difficult to know where to begin. Here, we count down five must-watch movies on Disney Plus that you can view in 4K or Ultra-High Definition.

If you’re unsure about the specifics of 4K television, why not check out our helpful guide to high definition television?

Avengers: Endgame (2019)

This is an obvious one. What have you been doing if not keeping up with the Marvel universe? The impressive visuals and dynamic scenes in this film are perfect for 4K viewing.

In this instalment, all of our heroes must team up to defeat the warlord Thanos, against all the odds. This epic finale to the Avengers franchise is full of action and perfect for fans of adventure, sci-fi, or just Chris Hemsworth!

If you fancy a Marvel marathon or need a catch-up, settle down with some popcorn because you’ll be staying a while. Disney Plus hosts 20 (twenty!) other Marvel superhero movies in 4K for you to make your way through.

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (1980)

How could we mention the Marvel movies without also mentioning Star Wars? This is another giant franchise that’s hard to stay away from.

All the originals, prequels and more recent instalments can be viewed in 4K, but we’ve chosen The Empire Strikes Back as our must-watch pick.

It’s a little older than the other picks here, but it’s certainly earned its place. This is the second film in the classic series of Jedi versus Sith Lord and is lauded by many fans as the best one. This endlessly-quotable movie is packed with genre-defining action sequences and lightsaber duels that still hold up today.

Inside Out (2015)

If you need a break from all that epic-ness, Disney Plus has got some great options for you and your family.

Inside Out is a wonderfully-animated coming of age story that revolves around a young girl as she struggles with a recent move and life changes. The five personified emotions (Fear, Disgust, Anger, Sadness and Joy) that live in her head must also come to terms with the new changes. Heart-warming adventures and hijinks ensue.

This movie is chock-full of bright, bubbly colours and gorgeous animation. It’s the perfect movie for children and adults alike! You might even find yourself tearing up (in a good way!).

Moana (2016)

It would be a crime not to include a musical on a Disney must-watch list! This one has got it all: shape-shifting demigods, giant singing crabs and a wild young princess who just wants to save her island.

It’s clear that a lot of love and care went into this production, and the quality of the animation becomes even more apparent when viewed in 4K or Ultra High Definition.

With the stunning main vocals by Auli’i Cravalho and music by Broadway superstar Lin-Manuel Miranda, you’ll be singing these songs for weeks to come!

Cinderella (2015)

This re-working of the Disney classic was one of the first in the most recent wave of live-action remakes that have been sweeping across our screens.

Starring Lily James and Richard Madden, this romantic fantasy film is bursting with whimsy and swoon-worthy visuals. The cartoon version just doesn’t quite do that blue dress justice!

This updated fairy tale has all the magic of the original and then some.
