Disney+ is light on new releases everyone will want to watch in December, with only one high-profile new show coming out this month. That show is National Treasure: Edge of History, a Nicolas Cage-less TV revival of the popular 2000s film series. Some shows that premiered in November are still putting out new episodes, though, including fantasy sequel series Willow, which premiered at the end of November, and the finale of Tim Allen's Christmas story revival limited series The Santa Clauses. Or you could catch up on Andor if you're behind or haven't started. I'm sure you've heard, but it's really good

We've put together our picks for what to watch on Disney+ in December 2022, plus lists of everything coming to the streaming service in the month.

The Best New Movies and Shows on Disney+ in December

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules (Dec. 2)

Geeky sixth-grader Greg Heffley is back for the second or sixth time, depending on how you count. This is the second animated Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie and the sixth overall, after four-live action movies and one animated reboot, which came out last year. It's the second Rodrick Rules movie. The first live-action version came out in 2011, but they're both based on the second book in author and cartoonist Jeff Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid children's novel series. This is all to say that Diary of a Wimpy Kid is quietly one of the most successful franchises out there. Rodrick Rules is about Greg's difficult relationship with his domineering older brother, Rodrick. [Trailer]  

National Treasure: Edge of History (Dec. 14) 

The family-friendly adventure franchise returns 15 years after the last movie for a series about a new character — a DREAMer named Jess Valenzuela (Lisette Olivera) who discovers some extraordinary secrets about her family — and a new mission to obtain a priceless historical artifact. Nicolas Cage isn't in it, but Harvey Keitel and Justin Bartha return, and are joined by Catherine Zeta-Jones as a black market billionaire. [Trailer]

If These Walls Could Sing (Dec. 16)

Following the success of last year's hit documentary The Beatles: Get Back, Disney+ is returning to similar territory with If These Walls Could Sing, a documentary about the legendary recording studio Abbey Road. The studio is most famous for its association with the Beatles, but it's also where Pink Floyd, Elton John, Oasis, and countless others have put their classic songs to tape. Paul and Ringo are of course interviewed (the film is directed by Paul's daughter Mary McCartney), along with Sir Elton, Roger Waters, John Williams, and many more. [Trailer

Watch Andor, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, and more $7.99 at Disney+
