Disney+ Celebrates Women’s History Month with Female Leads Collection

Disney Plus Womans History e1615247185332

Happy International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month! In order to celebrate the amazing women characters in pop culture, Disney+ has launched the “Female Leads Collection” on their streaming platform.

Through this section, viewers can access an extensive library of TV and film featuring women lead characters.

Some of my personal favorites include Mulan (both animated and live action versions, though I’m partial to Ming Na’s animated performance!), Moana, Meg Murry from A Wrinkle in Time, Carol Danvers from Captain Marvel, and of course, Wanda Maximoff (and Monica Rambeau!) from WandaVision.

Perusing through the collection, it’s really exciting to see so many varied and diverse options. Star Wars: Rogue One, which stars Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso, is one of my favorite Star Wars films ever. The recently released Flora & Ulysses, with Matilda Lawler as Flora, is a delight for all ages. Hidden Figures, starring Octavia Spencer, Taraji P. Henson and Janelle Monae is a film everyone should watch.

Below is a great breakdown of some of the amazing characters and the fantastic titles available now on Disney+!
