Is ‘The Polar Express’ On Disney Plus?

There is no question that The Polar Express is a beloved holiday classic that is enjoyed by millions each holiday season. There’s a whole heap of Christmas movies available on Disney+, and you might be wondering if ‘The Polar Express’ is one of those movies. Read on for everything we know!

Is ‘The Polar Express’ On Disney Plus?

‘The Polar Express’ is not available to stream on Disney+ in any country. As of writing, Disney hasn’t announced if, or when, the movie might be added to the service. And there’s a good reason for that!

There is no question that The Polar Express (and the first movie) seems like a perfect fit for Disney+ on the surface. We can understand how this type of film usually leads you to believe it must be a Disney movie. Disney is, of course, the biggest animation studio in the world. However, The Polar Express is distributed by Warner Bros. Picture.

This means that it is incredibly unlikely we’ll ever see The Polar Express or any other movie produced by Warner Bros. Picture arriving on Disney+. While things can change in the future, Warner Bros. Picture is a direct competitor to Disney, so The Polar Express won’t be coming to Disney+.
