After dropping a whole bounty of new Marvel and Star Wars series this year, Disney+ is slowing its roll. This December, the family-friendly streamer will amp up some holiday content in lieu of the usual action-packed programming. Instead of Hawkeye and Baby Yoda , expect to see more Christmas carols and new episodes of Willow .

The Santa Clauses wasn’t enough for Disney+. The streamer will release another holiday special in the form of Pentatonix, Around the World for the Holidays , which will take the famous a capella group on a journey through the globe’s various celebrations in the month of December. Start celebrating with Pentatonix on Dec. 2.

Then, our favorite children’s book comes to screens once more. Diary of a Wimpy Kid continues into the animated realm with Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules , an adaptation of the second book in Jeff Kinney’s beloved YA series. Catch up with Greg (and his nasty older brother) on Dec. 2.

Finally, Disney+ will release a new documentary on Dec. 2 called The Territory . The saga unfolds after a group of farmers infringe on an Indigenous territory, looking to seize the protected land as their own. The Native leader and his mentor fight back against the farmers, defending their land.

Looking forward to these titles? See what else Disney+ has to offer in the list below.
