The holiday season is fast approaching, so get cozy, whip up some hot cocoa and practice your ho, ho, ho! The temperatures will soon be dropping, so it’s the perfect excuse to wrap yourself up in your favorite blanket and binge-watch all the great shows and movies that Disney+ has to offer. While there will be a number of great holiday movies to fill your nights, but there will also be numerous shows that will keep your TV-watching schedule full.
Perhaps one of the most anticipated news series that will be making its Disney+ debut in December is the new Star Wars series, The Book of Boba Fett. The Book of Boba Fett will follow the infamous bounty hunter and Fennec Shand as they navigate the deep underworld of the galaxy. The two have returned from the desert planet of Tatooine and are working together to take territory once run by Jabba the Hutt.
Also in December, Disney’s newest animated movie, Encanto, will premiere on Christmas Eve. Encanto will first premiere in theaters on November 24 and will have a limited 30-day theatrical run. However, after its theatrical release, it will come to Disney+ just in time to watch with your family as they gather for the holidays! Encanto tells the story of Mirabel, the only woman in her family who was not blessed with some type of magical gift — which will play to her advantage as she tries to save their enchanted house.
