December brings loads of new movies and TV shows to Disney Plus, with the most anticipated title landing this month being The Book of Boba Fett, the Star Wars spin-off series about the titular bounty hunter. Hawkeye continues, too, and if you're in the UK, you'll be able to enjoy Ridley Scott's The Last Duel from the comfort of your own home, as well as Paddington and Paddington 2. Encanto also lands free on the streamer this December 24, just in time for a holiday movie marathon – and Ron's Gone Wrong is heading to Disney Plus as well. 

We've rounded up absolutely everything new on Disney Plus this December, and we've even highlighted our top three choices to make choosing something to watch that much easier. All three are available in both the UK and US, and we've also got separate lists for both countries. So, without further ado, scroll on to see all the new movies and TV shows landing on Disney Plus this month. 

Ron's Gone Wrong – December 15

Ron's Gone Wrong comes from 20th Century Studios, and follows Barney and his titular B-bot device Ron, or his 'Best Friend Out of the Box.' As you might expect, Ron is prone to malfunctions. Expect a heartwarming and funny tale of friendship in the digital age in this film, which boasts a voice cast that includes Jack Dylan Grazer, Zach Galifianakis, Olivia Colman, and Rob Delaney. 

Encanto – December 24

Encanto arrives on Disney Plus free of charge this Christmas Eve. The film focuses on Mirabel Madrigal (Stephanie Beatriz), who is the only member of her family without a magical 'gift' – but she could save the day when the Madrigals' magic comes under threat. Encanto marks Disney's 60th animated feature film, and has been well received by critics and audiences alike. Hamilton's Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote original songs for the movie. 

The Book of Boba Fett – December 29

The legendary bounty hunter returns in his own Star Wars spin-off show, The Book of Boba Fett. The series will be seven episodes long, kicking off this December 29. Temuera Morrison returns as the titular bounty hunter, and Ming-Na Wen is back as Fennec Shand. The official synopsis promises the duo will be delving into Tatooine's underworld to try and take over from Jabba the Hutt's previous reign – and, thanks to our sister publication SFX magazine, we know a big question about the bounty hunter will be answered
