Christmas is upon us, which means there’s inevitably a festive element to what’s on offer on Disney+ UK this month. Topping the December-focused newcomers is the “full-length” version of The Muppet Christmas Carol, which returns the long-cut song When Love is Gone to the film. The original cut remains available for streaming as well.

Elsewhere, David O Russell’s star-studded Amsterdam arrives on the platform in the wake of the cinematic run-up, alongside Oscar hopeful drama The Banshees of Inisherin. The latter serves as an In Bruges reunion, with director Martin McDonagh once again working with leads Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson.

The Muppet Christmas Carol: Full-Length Version (December 9)

Celebrating its 30th anniversary, The Muppet Christmas Carol is set to be available on Disney+ UK in its most complete form to date. Famously, the song When Love Is Gone was cut from the film by Disney CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg and has only appeared on a handful of home entertainment releases. It is now being restored to the December 9 movie, for those willing to check out the “extras” portion of the movie on the streaming platform.

The Banshees of Inisherin (December 21)

Martin McDonagh reunites Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, 14 years after they shared the screen for his pitch-black comedy In Bruges. Farrell plays the charming but weak Pádraic, whose quiet life on “an island off the coast of Ireland” is shockingly shaken when his friend Colm (Gleeson) decides he wants to end their relationship. What follows is a break-up movie with a difference, shot through with the kind of tragicomic weirdness for which McDonagh has become known. Awards season beckons, with Farrell in particular attracting real buzz for his performance.
