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.
Here's a rundown of what Disney+ is adding in December 2019, from its video post and press release on content for the next few weeks:
Sunday, December 1
• Henry Hugglemonster (seasons 1-2)
Tuesday, December 3
• One Day At Disney
Thursday, December 5

Friday, December 6

Thursday, December 26

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.
