The Mouse House recently revealed that they’re looking to make exclusive streaming content their number one priority moving forward, which is just as well because at the moment, Disney Plus doesn’t have too many options for original movies and TV series that have the potential to grab headlines and dominate the online conversation.
Sure, Hamilton was a huge success, but aside from that and, obviously The Mandalorian, there haven’t been a whole lot of high profile titles added in 2020. Mulan may have generated a lot of attention despite being locked behind a paywall, but it’s probably fair to say that for the most part, the blockbuster received the opposite kind of publicity from what Disney were hoping for.
Still, the studio will continue on with new additions and December’s lineup has now been revealed, promising some exciting titles to dig into next month. Again, it’s a bit light on originals, but down below you’ll see that there’s a nice mix of classic movies, solid holiday outings and, of course, more of Mando and Baby Yoda’s adventures.
