When it comes to quality, there's a lot to be said for what Disney+ has been able to produce month after month, but when it comes to quantity, the streaming service has, honestly, been coming up short in recent months. After you watch the few new things that are worth your time, what then?

November marks the two year anniversary of Disney+ and Disney is celebrating that milestone in a big way by providing not only the quality, but also the quantity. November 12, is Disney+ Day and the service is celebrating with quite possibly its biggest list of releases since day one

We'll see two major movie releases, as Jungle Cruise is taken off the premier access list and given to all subscribers. At the same time, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will also make its Disney+ debut.

A whole host of animated Disney shorts that haven't been available on Disney+ previously will finally arrive. We'll also get new shorts in the form of Olaf Presents, where the Frozen snowman reenacts popular animated Disney movies. And that's just the beginning.

If Disney+ just saved up all the content for November 12, I'm not sure most people would blame them, but there are a few more releases in the latter half of November that are worthy of note. In fact, if you're a fan of Disney history, the big date in November isn't the 12th, it's the 19th. That's when Adventure Thru The Walt Disney Archives will arrive on Disney+ and it will be hosted by legendary Disney producer Don Hahn

Thanksgiving week will also be a huge one for Disney+, as Wednesday, November 24 will see the release of the first two episodes of Marvel Studios' Hawkeye series. This will be followed by Peter Jackson's Beatles documentary Get Back, which will arrive in three parts on three consecutive nights, November 25-27.
