‘Big’ Coming Soon to Disney+ (US)


Today, Disney+ revealed it’s “Seasons Streaming” watch list.  This collection of holiday movies features some of the most heartwarming and festive family viewing of all time. In the announcement, the streaming service shared that 1988’s “Big” will be arriving on Disney+ on Friday, December 4th.

After a wish turns 12-year-old Josh Baskin (David Moscow) into a 30-year-old man (Tom Hanks), he heads to New York City and gets a low-level job at MacMillen Toy Company. A chance encounter with the owner (Robert Loggia) of the company leads to a promotion testing new toys. Soon a fellow employee, Susan Lawrence (Elizabeth Perkins), takes a romantic interest in Josh. However, the pressure of living as an adult begins to overwhelm him, and he longs to return to his simple, former life as a boy.

“Big” stars Tom Hanks, Elizabeth Perkins, and Robert Loggia.  The film was written by Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg and directed by Penny Marshall.
