New to Netflix, Stan, Prime Video, hayu, Foxtel and more in December 2018

Brodie Fogg 29 November 2018 NEWS

I saw mommy watching Tim Allen's The Santa Clause... and we haven't spoken since.

Baby, it's cold outside so why not Netflix and chill with Santa Claus? This year, Australia's many streaming services have really gone all out with the Christmas movies. Foxtel has most of the usual suspects like Will Ferrel's Elf, Home Alone and the entertainment equivalent of a lump of coal, The Santa Clause Trilogy (just how naughty have you monsters been?).

Stan's yuletide offering is a tad more generous (especially for the little ones) with Christmas cartoon specials like Foster's Home: A Lost Claus, Billy and Mandy Save Christmas and Inspector Gadget Saves Christmas. There's also something for the big kids this year; Stan's fantastic original comedy No Activity is getting its very own Christmas special with Patty Brammall, Darren Gilshenan and Harriet Dyer returning for No Activity: The Night Before Christmas.

Over on Netflix, a few breakout originals are getting Christmas specials, like the cooking disaster spectacle Nailed It! Holiday! and the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter's Tale. Most importantly, Netflix is giving the greatest gift of all this Christmas: Kurt Russell in a Santa suit. Christmas Chronicles is already available to stream so you won't find it in the list below but there's no doubt its going get a work-out over December.

Bah! Humbug, what else is streaming?

While we might be snowed in with Christmas jeer, I wanted to take a moment to highlight some of the other key titles releasing in December that might fly under the radar like a stealth sleigh hurtling through the sky.

Those going undercover the day after Christmas day with a belly full of barbequed meats will form a new bond with their couch and Stan has got the goods to keep you company. On Boxing Day, Stan drops the 007 collection in its entirety with everything from Dr. No to Spectre available on demand.

Meanwhile, Netflix will drop its long-awaited original Australian production Tidelands which is shaping up to be an ocker Twilight that replaces vampires and werewolves with mermaids.

December highlight: Mowgli

Netflix's seemingly darker take on Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book also launches this month; Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle stars youngster Rohan Chand in the lead role with the likes of Benedict Cumberbatch, Cate Blanchett, Andy Serkis and Christian Bale all lending their voices. Andy Serkis is also in the director's seat this time around. We're excited to see what ol' Smeagol does with the source material.
