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!
