That time of year is upon us again – Halloween. As with any thematic time of year, movies are an excellent way to transport audience’s minds to the setting and spirit of the season. Ghostly figures, cackling witches, spooky graveyards, and misty night air contribute to the sense of the supernatural that seems ever-present in Halloween films. Disney Halloween films present these elements and their own unique details in ways only Disney can. In fact, many of the films that appear on this list have become Halloween-time classics that continue to be enjoyed every season. Each film is listed in chronological order, according to its release date and a brief synopsis is provided to entice any reader to add this to their must-watch movies this Halloween. This list in no way covers the entire gamut of Halloween-type films that Disney has created, but this handful remains diverse enough, including live-action and animated and spanning over sixty years that those of any generation can light their jack-o’-lanterns and get ready to be spooked by these frightful fantasies.
