Is Disney’s ‘Halloweentown’ available for streaming on Netflix?

Everyone loves a classic Disney Channel movie from the 1990s. When Halloweentown premiered in 1998, it became a fan favorite. The cast included famous actors, like Debbie Reynolds, Judith Hoag, and Joey Zimmerman, and the plot followed a few children on their journey to a creepy and spooky new town.

“I can’t wait to watch Hocus Pocus and Halloweentown and act like I’ve never seen it before,” said one Twitter user.

Unfortunately, this beloved film is not available for streaming on Netflix. However, there is good news for fans of this Disney Channel original — plenty of Disney’s Halloween-inspired movies will play during Freeform’s “31 Nights of Halloween.” That includes films like Hocus Pocus and The Nightmare Before Christmas. Additionally, Halloweentown is available for streaming on Disney Now.
