As November brings an end to many outdoor activities, you might find yourself curled up with your kids on the couch. Luckily, there’s plenty of family-friendly choices to stream on Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime Video — and it’ll only get better as this month marks the launch of the new service Disney+.
The Mouse enters the streaming game with a big splash this month. The new service will feature nearly every Pixar and Disney classic at launch, along with Star Wars movies and TV series and the whole catalog of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. On your radar should be the “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” for teens and the new CGI version of “The Lady and the Tramp” for younger kids.
“Carmen Sandiego,” Netflix
An animated redo of the classic children’s show, the new second season finds Carmen Sandiego, a master thief, still traveling the world using her skills for good.
“The Little Mermaid Live!,” ABC & Hulu
ABC will broadcast this live performance on Nov. 5 that brings together songs from the stage and film versions of the Disney mermaid classic featuring Auli’I Cravalho, the voice of Moana, in the lead role. Miss it on ABC? You can catch up on Hulu.
Want to introduce your kids to some favorites from when you were younger? You can find the series “Rugrats” and both teen-tastic “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” movies on Netflix. If you want to give your teens a John Hughes education, Hulu has “Sixteen Candles” and “Pretty in Pink” or take them back even further with classic cartoons “The Pink Panther Show” or “Speed Racer.”
