Forget about the 12 Days of Christmas – it’s the 12 Disney Plus Originals of Christmas this year. The Mouse House’s streaming service is releasing a bunch of new movies and TV series across the next few weeks, with the highlights being the original content that’s coming our way. Included in their number is a quartet of must-see pics, a short film, a couple of docuseries and a load of new episodes of hot D+ shows.
First up, after its debut on Premier Access, Mulan is finally being made available on Disney Plus for all subscribers at no extra cost. So, if you haven’t caught the all-action remake, now’s your chance. The same day also sees the debut of fantasy comedy movie Godmothered, starring Jillian Bell as a fairy godmother who answers a little girl’s wish for help, only for it to turn out that she’s 30 years too late and the girl has grown into a cynical 40-something (Isla Fisher).
As for TV shows, new episodes of The Mandalorian and The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse drop throughout the first three weeks of the month. Meanwhile, short-form docuseries Beyond the Clouds: Where it All Began – which can be found in the Extras section of Clouds – airs on all four Fridays.
