Yes to all of this.

by Ani Bundel

The holidays have been a big deal for the Disney brand, and the streaming era has only made this even more true. Disney+ has gone in on Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas whole hog since its launch, with specials from all over the various fandoms within its umbrella. With the year winding down, the last of the 2022 releases are heading to land on streaming in time for the family to watch. Here’s a rundown of what’s coming to Disney+ in December 2022.

As always, music is on the menu for the holiday season, with Disney+ debuting Pentatonix: Around the World For the Holidays, Idina Menzel: Which Way to the Stage, and A Very Backstreet Holiday for December. The streaming service also continues to emphasize the vocals for classic movies on streaming with Muppets Most Wanted (The Sing-Along Version). Disney also has its own milestones to celebrate, including the 30th anniversary of the original animated Beauty and the Beast. And, there’s a new movie for streaming just in time for the winter break as Night at the Museum: Kahmunrah Rises Again arrives.

All that, and new episodes of The Santa Clauses, The Mysterious Benedict Society, and Willow. It’s the most fantastical time of the year.
