Our Top 10 Picks 

We promise there’s something for everyone this Christmas on Disney Plus. Now, we know Christmas is not for everyone *ahem* How dare you?! So, to keep it fair we’ll include some goodies that bear no semblance to Christmas. What. So. Ever. 

But we’ve got to admit that the majority of our picks are jam-packed with festive cheer. Santa. Rudolf the Red-nosed reindeer. Gingerbread men. Cinnamon tea. Golden lights. Christmas trees and snowy door wreaths… 

Anyone else Buddy-the-Elf-when-he-sees-Santa kind of excited? 

10. Hawkeye (2021) 

Hawkeye (Disney Plus original)

Hawkeye is the upcoming instalment of Marvel’s miniseries. Similar titles like WandaVision and Loki scored very well with critics and fans of the cinematic universe. If they’re anything to go by, we’re sure Hawkeye will be another hit. Just in time for your well-deserved Marvel-athon.

Christmas Again (Disney Plus original)

A new original movie is scheduled to premiere on Disney Plus on December 10th. Rowena, otherwise known as “Ro”, is struggling to come to terms with her parent’s divorce. Because of this, the spirited teenager is not in a very Christmassy mood, even in the company of her sister Gabby. She wants to go back to better days. So, she wishes Santa would “do over” Christmas. As a result, she finds it is Christmas every day. Looks like Wizzard got their wish after all.
