New to Disney Plus for December 2020

Disney Plus is bringing more goodness to December with Holiday specials, Pixar’s latest, and even more coming to the service.

Disney Plus gives us the exact content I expected from them this month. Yes, we get the continuing adventures of The Mandalorian (and Grogu), A Christmas-themed movie/show every week. Beyond the Clouds, a behind the scenes look at the making of the Disney plus original movie ‘Clouds’, giving you an in-depth look into the making of the movie and the life of Zach Sobiech.

Of course, the one thing I’m really looking forward to is the movie SOUL on Christmas day. I honestly feel like Disney is giving us all a present with this one.

Soul Premiere
What is it that makes you…YOU? Pixar Animation Studios’ all-new feature film “Soul” introduces Joe Gardner (voice of Jamie Foxx) – a middle-school band teacher who gets the chance of a lifetime to play at the best jazz club in town. But one small misstep takes him from the streets of New York City to The Great Before – a fantastical place where new souls get their personalities, quirks, and interests before they go to Earth. Determined to return to his life, Joe teams up with a precocious soul, 22 (voice of Tina Fey), who has never understood the appeal of the human experience. As Joe desperately tries to show 22 what’s great about living, he may just discover the answers to some of life’s most important questions.

Burrow Premiere
A young rabbit embarks on a journey to dig the burrow of her dreams, despite not having a clue what she’s doing. Rather than reveal to her neighbors her imperfections, she digs herself deeper and deeper into trouble. After hitting (bed)rock bottom, she learns there is no shame in asking for help.

Extras – Beyond the Clouds: A Musical Miracle
When Justin tasks Fin with creating an original song to be performed in the film, Fin surprises himself and everyone else when he discovers that his new song is directly connected to one Zach had been writing but was unable to finish before he passed away. Nothing short of a miracle, the story deeply touches Justin and, especially Zach’s girlfriend, Amy.
