While by no means comprehensive, Netflix does have an interesting list of musicals that are currently streaming on the service. Here is every musical on Netflix, ranked from best to worst by Ranker users. The best musical movies on Netflix range from classics like White Christmas and Fantasia to the more contemporary hits Grease and High School Musical. Not to mention Broadway darlings Rent and The Phantom of the Opera at The Royal Albert Hall, and some truly unique entries like Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s Cannibal! The Musical—hmmm, I wonder what that's about?

Musicals give a special place to animated films which have included musical numbers for quite some time, creating a fascinating hybrid genre. Currently animated musicals on Netflix include Mulan, HerculesAnastasia, and Shrek the Musical.

So, take a peek at the best movie musicals on Netflix and let us know what makes you sing along.
