Every month Disney+ adds new series and films to the service. It also adds new seasons of popular shows that are already on the service. Several of us here at “What’s On Disney Plus” are going to give you our Top 5 Films and Series we’re excited to see each month. Let’s take a look at December 2022.
1. DARBY AND THE DEAD
This new comedy film from 20th Century Studios looks kinda interesting, very different from the other holiday content dropping this month. It might be a bit cliche with all the High School troupes, but it’ll probably be an easy watch.
2. ENCANTO AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL
I love the songs from the film and watching them being performed at the legendary Hollywood Bowl sounds like it’s going to be a great musical experience, as long as we don’t talk about Bruno.
3. THE SANTA CLAUSES
With just a couple more episodes of this family friendly comedy series left to come in December, I’m gonna be interested to see how all of this gets sorted. It’s maybe not the best show ever, but for the holiday season, it’s fun enough.
Easily for me the standout show I’m looking forward to watching in December. I’ve seen the first few episodes and can’t wait to watch the rest of show. It’s full of great fantasy adventures and it’s nice having something that isn’t Marvel or Star Wars.
5. NATIONAL TREASURE
As a big fan of the original two films, it’ll be interesting to see what this series is and how it’s been adapted to TV. Like with Willow, it’s nice to have something different to watch.
Mickey’s Christmas Carol – classic, nostalgic
Mickey: The Story of A Mouse – historical and really informative about the origins
The Santa Clause movies
Limitless with Chris Hemsworth
Disenchanted – really liked the first one and can’t wait to watch the sequel now that it is out.
1. PENTATONIX: AROUND THE WORLD FOR THE HOLIDAYS
Having seen this group live, I look forward to how the world’s most creative acapella quintet will put a global spin on Christmas standards.
2. THE SANTA CLAUSES
It seems that Tim Allen received a lot of leeway to craft this limited series as he wanted to—so count on some corny schtick but also plenty of heart.
3. IDINA MENZEL: WHICH WAY TO THE STAGE?
A documentary on one of the world’s greatest Broadway talents who’s also deeply involved in Disney animation? Yes, please.
Considering the US withdrawal of Afghanistan is among the most consequential geopolitical events of the past decade, this will be an important (if weighty) film to watch.
5. (TIE) THE MYSTERIOUS BENEDICT SOCIETY SEASON 2 AND ALASKA DAILY SEASON ONE ON HULU
Two of the best Disney-produced series of the year both close out their latest seasons this month. Here’s hoping both are renewed!
1. A MUPPETS CHRISTMAS CAROL: EXTENDED EDITION
I love the Muppets and this is my favorite version of “A Christmas Carol.” Giving me a longer version is exactly what I want.
The first LucasFilm Disney+ Original Series not focused on Star Wars looks like a fun continuation of the very popular film.
3. THE SANTA CLAUSES
This fun look at the life of Tim Allen’s Santa Claus as he heads to retirement has been enjoyable so far and has three more episodes to bring it home. Plus, it’s an easy transition back to the popular “The Santa Clause” films.
4. MUPPETS MOST WANTED (SINGALONG)
As I said just a few entries ago, I love the Muppets, and even though “Muppets Most Wanted” is missing some of the charm of other Muppet productions, providing a singalong version can make the film more fun.
5. THE GREAT CHRISTMAS LIGHT FIGHT
I love Christmas lights. It’s always fun to go driving around the neighborhood and see how people have decorated their houses for Christmas. While most are simple, it’s awesome to see how far some people go to make the holidays special for the people who drive by their homes.
Those are some of our picks. What are you most excited to see on Disney+ in December?
