Disney Plus launched in 2019 with most of Disney’s back catalog, but the platform still hasn’t reached maximum capacity just yet. In addition to original content, like the currently airing Andor series, there is a host of older movies and shows that trickle onto Disney Plus each month.

Speaking of Andor, the Star Wars series wraps up this month. And Christmas season starts a bit early with the premiere of the new Santa Clause series (Bernard the Hot Elf included). At the beginning of the month, anime series The Tatami Time Machine Blues hits Disney Plus and at the end, check out the long awaited sequel to Enchanted, and the premiere of the Willow TV show.
