    Is Book of Boba Fett still confirmed for December?

    1. CrosswalkX November 19, 2021

      Yes Book of Boba Fett is coming to Disney Plus. But I'm disappointed Disney Plus won't release my favorite Donald Duck cartoon shorts Donald's Snow Fight, The Clock Watcher, Toy Tinkers which is very disappointing as I'm a big fan of Donald Duck cartoon shorts from the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s, 1960s.

  2. Erin Ordakowski September 13, 2021

    I really hope they add the Disney Channel TV show, The Famous Jett Jackson, the Disney Channel Original Movie, Jett Jackson: The Movie, and the other Disney Channel Original Movie, The Jennie Project, to this list. This year was the 20-year-anniversary for Jett Jackson: The Movie. Jett Jackson: The Movie is based on the TV series, The Famous Jett Jackson. And this year was the 20-year-anniversary for the Jennie Project. So, I started thinking: maybe this year would be a good year for Disney to put those 3 things up on Disney+, and maybe then doing it with 2 of those Disney Channel programs in December would be like an early Christmas present to us, and maybe them doing it with the other one -- out of all 3 of those programs -- would be like a New Year's Eve present to us.

    1. CrosswalkX November 19, 2021

      I agree with you. Jett Jackson needs to be added on Disney Plus. Also Disney Plus has not released my Favorite Donald Duck Christmas cartoon shorts, Polar Trappers 1936, Donald's Snow Fight 1942, The Clock Watcher 1945, Toy Tinkers 1949 and Mickey's Good Deed 1932. I'm very annoyed and frustrated with Disney Plus, have they forgotten about the classic Donald Duck cartoon shorts? This Disney Plus library in the shorts section is very underwhelming.

  3. Erin Ordakowski September 13, 2021

    If it said the word, ''then,'' in my comment about what I want to see become available on Disney+ in December of this year, it must've auto corrected it. I meant for it to say the word, ''them.'' Sorry about that.

  4. Nathan Gamerdog October 19, 2021

    Could you add Million Dollar Arm coming on the 3rd

  5. Robert October 29, 2021

    Would love to see House of Mouse, Life Size and Fern Gully added.

    1. Naeem Harmon / 300-426-830 (MHID) November 16, 2021

      Home Improvement too.

    2. CrosswalkX November 19, 2021

      Yes I want to see House of Mouse. I don't know why Disney Plus has ignored releasing House of Mouse on Disney Plus. I would also love to see at least 3 classic 1940s Donald Duck cartoon shorts Donald's Snow Fight, The Clock Watcher, Toy Tinkers on Disney Plus. It's too bad Disney Plus has forgotten about them.

    3. Anima November 23, 2021

      Yes House of Mouse. I neeeed it.

  6. Joey Keyser November 1, 2021

    For my Christmas wish, I would like Disney+ to add the show "Stanley". Also, I've been unsuccessfully trying to contact Jim Jinkins, the creator of the show "Stanley", to see if he can assist in my request. Is there any way you can tell me how do I contact Jim Jinkins?

  7. Joey Keyser November 1, 2021

    I forgot to tell you why this show is educational. When I was younger, watching Stanley was one of the few very educational shows put on air. The episodes made it entertaining, easy to learn, interesting and family-friendly entertainment. This type of show makes you want to jump right into the book (The Great Big Book of Everything) with Stanley like you were going on the adventure! I feel as though a lot of shows on TV are either violent, unrealistic, shows poor manners, bad language and fear that it could be a bad influence on kids growing up in society. In this day and age, kids are on their electronics as much as they can, so why not put stuff on TV that would help them learn? “Stanley teaches a wide variety of issues preschool children face, including change, growth, rules, and dealing with others. Each episode centers around an animal that deals with or helps explain the issue Stanley is grappling with.” I am an Autistic 22-year-old man and I very much would love to revisit all these episodes so I (and other people) can enjoy some happiness, especially with all the disasters happening in the world as we speak.

    1. Liam Stuart November 2, 2021

      Hey Joey, if you are asking Disney to add “Stanley”, which is a show that I want them to add soon, along with another show especially, “Bear In The Big Blue House”, this is the wrong place to ask. This site is an informational site of what is going on with Disney Plus, and is not affiliated with Disney in any way.

      1. Joey Keyser November 2, 2021

        Thank you for letting me know that information, Liam.

        1. CrosswalkX November 19, 2021

          Have you heard of the Donald Duck Christmas cartoon shorts, Polar Trappers 1936, Donald's Snow Fight 1942, The Clock Watcher 1945, Toy Tinkers 1949? Disney Plus has ignored my request to release my favorite Donald Duck Christmas cartoon shorts. I grew up watching them on Disney Channel in the 1980s and 1990s and they're very special to me.

      2. CrosswalkX November 19, 2021

        Have you heard of the 1940s Donald Duck cartoon shorts, Donald's Snow Fight, The Clock Watcher and Toy Tinkers? I really want to see them show up on Disney Plus and I'm very sad it's not included in the Disney Plus December schedule.

  8. Zachary Gage November 8, 2021

    The Simpsons Balencigara Short And The Tracey Ullman Show (20th TV, 1987-1990) Or The Simpsons Shorts (1987-1989)

    1. CrosswalkX November 19, 2021

      Have you heard of the Donald Duck cartoon shorts Donald's Snow Fight 1942, The clock watcher 1945, Toy Tinkers 1949? They are missing on Disney Plus and I'm sad they're not available on Disney Plus.

  9. Jacquelene V Lively November 8, 2021

    It took less than 24 hours to watch anything new I haven't seen in a year since my last subscription. I hope Disney plus provides more entertainment. I have most of the DVDs to the movies. Looking ng for something NEW.

  10. Nathan Gamerdog November 11, 2021

    Could you add Million Dollar Arm, as it is set to arrive on the 3rd of December

    1. CrosswalkX November 19, 2021

      Have you seen the 1940s Donald Duck Christmas shorts Donald's Snow Fight, The Clock Watcher and Toy Tinkers. They are nowhere to be found on Disney Plus, I'm very sad they're excluded on Disney Plus.

  11. Nicky J. O'Hagan November 13, 2021

    Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days will be leaving on HBO Max in November 30 and it will return to Disney+ in this December.

    1. CrosswalkX November 19, 2021

      Have you seen the 1940s Donald Duck cartoon Christmas Shorts Donald's Snow Fight, The Clock Watcher, Toy Tinkers? They used to be on Disney Channel back in the 1980s, 1990s and Disney Plus is missing them and I'm sad that they're unavailable on Disney Plus.

    2. CrosswalkX November 19, 2021

      I wish Disney Plus would release 4 Donald Duck cartoon shorts Polar Trappers 1936, Donald's Snow Fight 1942, The Clock Watcher 1945, Toy Tinkers 1949. They're perfect for Christmas specials. It's very disappointing that it's missing on Disney Plus.

  14. Naeem Harmon / 300-426-830 (MHID) November 16, 2021

    Home Improvement & the Aladdin TV show better be added

  15. CrosswalkX November 19, 2021

    This Disney Plus Christmas list is very disappointing. They're missing my Favorite Donald Duck Christmas cartoon shorts. To the Disney Plus fans and Roger Palmer. I want everybody to know that I'm very upset and disappointed Disney Plus has forgotten to release my favorite Donald Duck Christmas cartoons. Where's Polar Trappers 1936, where's Donald's Snow Fight 1942? Where's The Clock Watcher 1945? and where the heck is Toy Tinkers 1949? Disney Plus is even missing Mickey's Good Deed 1932. Seriously Disney Plus you have alot of explaining to do. Why has Disney Plus given Donald Duck classic Christmas specials the cold shoulder? Donald Duck is dressed up like Santa Claus in Toy Tinkers 1949 and nobody in this 2020 generation should miss out. I want to talk to the Disney Plus company about the glaring omission they given to Donald Duck cartoon shorts The Clock Watcher and Donald's Snow Fight and Toy Tinkers. They should not be missing on Disney Plus, they're the best cartoon shorts of all time. Bring it on Disney Plus right away.

  18. Nicky J. O'Hagan November 22, 2021

    Why is Disney didn't add DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: DOG DAYS to be return on Disney+ this December? Where is Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakequel? I wish The Blue Bird with Elizabeth Taylor will be streaming on Disney+ in the USA soon.
