Disney+ just launched on November 12, 2019, so December 2019 will be its first full month in existence. So now what? After the first flush of excitement at all of the content available, you have to wonder, what else is new? Well, Disney+ is doing what most other streamers do and announcing new movies and TV shows monthly.

Some of the new stuff coming in December 2019 just continues what was set up in the first month -- including new episodes of the breakout Star Wars TV show The Mandalorian and its Season 1, Episode 8 finale. (We are going to be starved for new Baby Yoda memes until Season 2 arrives later in 2020.)

Thor: Ragnarok and Star Wars: The Last Jedi are arriving on Disney+ right after they leave Netflix. Unfortunately, that does mean Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will be in theaters before the previous movie arrives on Disney/Lucasfilm's streaming service.

Other than that? A few new things here and there, but after Disney+ posted the tweet below about its new December 2019 content, it was flooded with the kind of responses Netflix has been enjoying for years now -- when are you getting THIS or THAT? Other major movies are scheduled out for later in 2020 (and beyond) so you can check this list for that intel.

Marvel's Spider-Man

So that's the basic rundown of what's coming to Disney+ in December 2019 before we get more updates on new content for the January 2020 new year. Of course, Disney+ opened its doors with a huge amount of content -- from the Disney/Pixar/Marvel/Lucasfilm/NatGeo library, along with some new original films and shows. Content-wise, Netflix still has the edge on new originals, but we'll have to see where Disney+ is one year from now.

One Vital Change Disney+ Needs To Make

If you don't have Disney+ yet but you want to catch up on the fuss about Baby Yoda, go ahead and sign up for a free seven-day trial. If you're curious about the other streamers, here's what Hulu is adding in December 2019 and here are new movies and TV shows arriving on Netflix this month.

Gina Carbone

Gina grew up in Massachusetts and California in her own version of The Parent Trap. She went to three different middle schools, four high schools, and three universities -- including half a year in Perth, Western Australia. She currently lives in a small town in Maine, the kind Stephen King regularly sets terrible things in, so this may be the last you hear from her.
