This holiday season, Disney+ is getting a number of Christmas themed films and shorts added, including a brand new film, “Home Sweet Home Alone” plus some classics such as “Jingle All The Way”. And we should also hopefully get some more Christmas specials and films on Disney+ in December, which will be announced at a later date.
Here’s the rundown:
Home Sweet Home Alone
Max Mercer is a mischievous and resourceful young boy who has been left behind while his family is in Japan for the holidays. So when a married couple attempting to retrieve a priceless heirloom set their sights on the Mercer family’s home, it is up to Max to protect it from the trespassers…and he will do whatever it takes to keep them out. Hilarious hijinks of epic proportions ensue, but despite the absolute chaos, Max comes to realize that there really is no place like home sweet home.
This brand new holiday film is coming to Disney+ around the world on Friday 12th November 2021.
Ro isn’t handling her parents’ divorce well because she wants her life back the way it was—her parents back together, her dad’s new girlfriend and son out of the picture, and their family traditions to remain the same. After a disappointing celebration with her family, including her sister Gabriela “Gabby,” Abuela Sofia and Abuelo Hector, she makes a wish to a neighborhood Santa for a “do-over” and unexpectedly finds herself reliving Christmas day over and over … and over again. Now, in order to break the strange magical loop, Ro must learn to appreciate her loving family as it is, as well as the true meaning of Christmas.

And don’t forget, there are plenty of other great Christmas movies available on Disney+ including:
The Muppets Christmas Carol
The Muppet’s rendition of Charles Dickens’ classic tale puts a unique twist on a favourite holiday story. With all the fantastic Muppet characters involved and one of the most popular Christmas stories of all time, this list wouldn’t have been right without some Muppets included.
One of my all-time favourite Christmas movies, this classic 20th Century Fox movie has everything I’d want from a Christmas film. It has mischief and mayhem as an eight-year-old Kevin McCallister makes the most of the situation after his family unwittingly leaves him behind when they go on Christmas vacation. But when a pair of bungling burglars set their sights on Kevin’s house, the plucky kid stands ready to defend his territory. By planting booby traps galore, adorably mischievous Kevin stands his ground as his frantic mother attempts to race home before Christmas Day.
Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmas
This animated classic features Mickey, Minnie and their famous friends for hilarious and heartwarming stories of their most memorable Christmases together. You get to experience a merry collection of adventures and magical Christmas songs celebrating the true joys of the holiday season. You can also catch Mickey’s Twice Upon A Christmas on Disney+ as well.
The Christmas Carol
Ebenezer Scrooge, a spiteful and miserly man, encounters three spirits on Christmas Eve, who show him the folly of his ways and prompt him to become a better man. This is my personal favourite version of this classic tale.
