Corpse Bride: Synopsis

For those who haven’t seen Corpse Bride (2005) before, it is a Tim Burton animated drama starring Johnny Depp as Victor and Helena Bonham Carter as Emily, the Corpse Bride. There are other great names in the cast giving their voices to characters, such as Jim Carrey, Emily Watson, Christopher Lee, and others.

The plot is set in the 1800s, in an old victorian village, where Victor Van Dort is betrothed to marry Victoria Everglot in an arranged marriage due to the Everglots’ financial troubles. 

As Victor practices his wedding vows alone in the forest, he accidentally puts a ring on a finger of a corpse, and before he knows it, he ends up married to Emily, the Corpse Bride, and is taken to the Land of the Dead. He’s trying to find a way to get back, but in the meantime, he grows fond of Emily. 

Also, Victoria and the Everglots are already trying to replace Victor with a new, rich suitor, so Victor can’t decide if he even wants to go back or stay where he is with his accidental wife, Emily.

Is Corpse Bride on Disney Plus?

Unfortunately, Corpse Bride is not available for streaming on Disney Plus. Some people think that, since it’s an animated classic, Corpse Bride would certainly be on the platform, but it wasn’t a Disney movie at all, and they didn’t add the film to their platform subsequently. There are, however, other Tim Burton movies on the platform you could watch right now.

The Nightmare Before Christmas is considered a Tim Burton movie, although he wasn’t the director. Barton was the creator and writer, though. There’s another movie on the platform that he didn’t create, but it was directed by the same guy who directed The Nightmare Before Christmas, Henry Selick.

The movie is called James and the Giant Peach, and it’s quite a cool movie. The stop-motion animation looks awesome, and there are some Easter eggs hinting at Burton’s films, so you might find that interesting.

Where can I watch Corpse Bride?

Corpse Bride is an incredibly popular movie, especially around Halloween. Therefore, you can find Corpse Bride on multiple streaming platforms. The movie is available both on Netflix and HBO Max, so if you have a subscription to any of those platforms, you can stream the movie today. 

That goes for most countries where Netflix and HBO Max are available, but you should still check, as it’s possible that it may not be available everywhere. If you don’t have a subscription to either platform, that’s fine – you can still find the film at other places online.

Those who have access to iTunes can buy or rent the movie there. It’s also available to buy or rent on Amazon Prime Video, as well as on Vudu and Google Play.

Alternatively, you can simply wait for it to come back on TV somewhere. It’s quite frequently aired on many channels, as it’s an older, cheaper movie, but it is still very popular.
