One of the worst things about Netflix is the monthly turnover of its library. You never know which of your favorite movies or TV series will be deleted from the streaming service next. But one of the best things about Netflix is the monthly turnover of its library. You never know what fresh new content will show up next, especially with original Netflix movies and shows debuting all the time. Make Netflix's penchant for change work for you this holiday season by checking out the new Christmas offerings coming to the service in December.
Anyone reading this right now probably grew up watching The Santa Clause. What you probably don't remember is that the star of the movie, Tim Allen, was a huge TV star when Disney made the movie. So The Santa Clause was destined to be a megahit, and now we keep watching it every Christmas even though most people only barely remember who Tim Allen was.
Parents probably know the StoryBots from Ask the StoryBots or the many other StoryBots multimedia things for parents to buy. Judy Greer is the voice of Beep (the green one), the main character of the StoryBots. She's also the voice of Cheryl Tunt on Archer, which makes StoryBots weird to enjoy with your kids. Anyway, this is the StoryBots Christmas special.
El Camino Christmas is about "a drifter, a drunk, a deputy, a reporter and a single mom" who experience "a wild Christmas they never saw coming." It seems like a great choice if you like the holidays but need your Christmas cheer cut with Southwest-flavored crime comedy for some reason.
Do you love Hallmark Channel holiday movies, but you cut the cord, so now you only have Netflix? Miss Me This Christmas may be perfect for you. It's a romantic comedy about a couple that splits up around the holidays, but then gets back together in the end, probably. So don't miss Miss Me This Christmas this Christmas.
How did it take them eight freaking years to make a sequel to The Santa Clause? You'd think they would've pumped this one out the very next year, but this sequel to the 1994 original came out in 2002. We guess Disney didn't care that all the original fans had outgrown it by then and didn't care anymore. Still a great choice for your family, though.
Are you one of those parents who was furious you had to watch a Frozen cartoon before Pixar's Coco? Why not stick it to Pixar by watching their bitter rival Dreamworks' new Netflix exclusive Christmas offering? It's the holiday special for the Netflix series Home: Adventures With Tip and Oh, which, if you've heard of that, you were probably going to watch this anyway.
Sometimes Groundhog Day feels in our hearts like a Christmas movie because its so wintry. But it's a Groundhog Day movie, which means you're not allowed to watch it until February. So tide yourself over during Christmas by watching Christmas Inheritance, because Andie MacDowell's in it.
You Can't Fight Christmas is a companion movie to Miss Me This Christmas. They share the same setting and some of the same characters. So if you liked that one, then watch this one. Because you can't fight You Can't Fight Christmas this Christmas.
Last year, DreamWorks made an animated feature about those troll toys with the hair. If you have little kids, maybe it's one of the movies you've plopped them in front of three dozen times to distract them while you try to get a single moment to yourself, for chrissakes. Well, this is the holiday version of that movie.
In 2006, four years after The Santa Clause 2 and 12 years after the original, Disney released The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause. It's the final film in the series (for now), and co-stars Martin Short as Jack Frost in case the movie Jack Frost and the other movie Jack Frost weren't enough for you. Not-so-fun fact: This was Peter Boyle's last movie. R.I.P.
