Since late in 2019, when Disney launched its own streaming platform, fans of its animated classics, beloved hits and many, many super-popular franchises have been able to binge their way through the Mouse House's back catalogue from the comfort of their couch. For a few weeks in January and February 2022, however, movie buffs are being asked to leave their houses to check out a selection of the company's famed titles — all thanks to the pop-up Disney+ Drive-In, which is returning to Melbourne.

Yes, a streaming service is running a drive-in. Or, to put it another way, a product designed to get everyone watching on small screens at home is now endeavouring to lure viewers out to watch its flicks on a big screen from their cars. That's a very pandemic-era situation, with Disney+ teaming up with Openair Cinemas to make it happen.

The drive-in will arrive back at the Melbourne Showgrounds car park on Friday, January 14, screening films most nights until Thursday, February 24. As for what'll be screening, the Disney+ Drive-In is working through the Mouse House's hits — including the animated version of The Lion King, fellow family-friendly hits Moana and Frozen, Pixar's Ratatouille and Coco, and a sing-along session of The Little Mermaid.

Or, you can check out live-action throwback favourites such as Freaky Friday, 10 Things I Hate About You, Pretty Woman, Speed and Romeo + Juliet — or head to the much more recent Jungle Cruise, Cruella and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

Popcorn, snacks and drinks will be available onsite — or you can bring your own. It's strictly a no-alcohol affair, though.

And, ticket-wise, you'll be paying per car.
