Disney+ is getting in on the holiday film ferver with a number of fun offerings for subscribers. The Santa Clauses, a new Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special and Mickey Loves Christmas are among the films to be found on the streamer as audiences search for the best lineup of Christmas films.
Plus fans of the Ben Stiller Night at the Museum franchise will find Night at the Museum: Kahmunrah Rises Again set to stream starting December 9th. This film starts with the character Nick Daley following in his father’s footsteps to once again save a museum.
Other extras coming to the streamer include the full length version of The Muppets Christmas Carol, with a special added song “When Love Is Gone” to help celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Muppets tale. The offerings are rounded out by Rev Run’s The Hip Hop Nutcracker, set in New York City with the title character Maria-Clara and Pentatonix: Around the World for the Holidays, which starts streaming on December 2. The celebration there kicks off when the a cappella group gets locked in a mailroom and needs a little Disney magic to get out and go on tour. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules also streams December 2.
In terms of original offerings, Disney+ is also adding more fun adventure films and music offerings. National Treasure: Edge of History streams December 14. And on December 16, Le Pupille, a “tale of innocence, greed and fantasy” releases. This live action short, about girls living in a strict religious boarding school during Christmas, is produced by Academy Award winner Alfonso Cuaron. And Encanto fans will want to pencil in the December 28 debut of Encanto at The Hollywood Bowl, featuring a look at Casa Madrigal for a concert event performed by the original voice cast of the 2021 hit animated movie.
The streamer’s strong storytelling fall set a high bar for, apparently, a stronger narrative winter as showcased by the November releases of Andor, which is a continuation of the Star Wars franchise and Willow, a second look at a popular 80s movie of the same name.
