By Lore Apostol / December 24, 2021

Disney Plus has a big library with all kinds of productions, such as movies for adults, 4K movies, action movies, Marvel films, series, and documentaries. Since the content falls into various ratings, we made a list that encompasses the G-Rated movies to let your young kids enjoy. G is for General Audiences as per the Motion Picture Association, meaning that all ages are admitted because the production does not have a theme, language, nudity, sex, violence, or other matters that would not be suited for small children.
