Disney+ is the home of all things Star Wars and Marvel for fans in Australia, and there’s a decent bunch of new releases on the streaming service over the coming months that we think you should watch, just not really this month.
On Disney+ Day, we got a glimpse of what we can expect from the streaming service here in Australia over the next few months, but this month is a little dry. Never fear, there are still some goodies coming our way.

An animated film as a continuation of Night at the museum franchise, Kahmunrah rises again brings back the villain of the second film. Ben Stiller isn’t back this time, but it has all the same characters and much of the same humor.
Encanto at The Hollywood Bowl – December 28th
Encanto at the Hollywood Bowl is a live-action recreation of all the performances and songs from the December 2021 animated film. It features all the songs and, like previous Disney+ productions, captures the live performances in a streamable form.
