Disney+ launched back in November 2019, and the company is recognizing this anniversary on November 12 with a celebration called Disney+ Day. This is a day where fans can check out some new releases, and hopefully get announcements about upcoming projects as well. But before we look to 2022 and beyond, there’s still plenty of great content planned for the end of this year. Here are seven shows, movies, and specials that you won’t want to miss in November.

1. Hawkeye

Christmas is coming a little early this year with the debut of Hawkeye, the new MCU series debuting on November 24. In this series, Hawkeye finds himself under attack in New York City during Christmastime, and he teams up with archer Kate Bishop to find out why. As a bonus gift for viewers, Disney+ will be premiering two episodes on the release date.

2. Under The Helmet: The Legacy Of Boba Fett

For years—decades, even—Boba Fett has been the coolest bounty hunter in the galaxy. And on December 29, we’ll be seeing him in his own series, The Book of Boba Fett. But before that, Disney+ will premiere this special documentary on November 12 that takes a look back on the creation and the legacy of this fan-favorite Star Wars character.

3. Marvel Studios’ 2021 Disney+ Day Special

Not much is known about this Marvel Studios special that will be premiering on November 12, but the synopsis says it “explores the Disney+ series of the MCU—past, present, and future.” So we might be getting new looks at some of the upcoming Marvel series. And if you’ve been a fan of them so far, you won’t want to miss this presentation.

4. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

After being released only in theaters back in September, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is finally finding its way onto Disney+ on November 12. Now, you can relive the magic of the origin story of Shang-Chi once again or discover this Avenger-in-the-making for the very first time—all from the comfort of your own home.

5. Jungle Cruise

If you’re looking for a classic family adventure movie to watch, Jungle Cruise will be sailing its way onto Disney+ on November 12. The film stars Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt, and it takes the Disneyland ride that it was based on and transforms it into a thrilling, fun tale.

6. Home Sweet Home Alone

Get ready for the 2020s’ take on the Home Alone franchise with this new, updated film that takes yet another helpless kid who must defend himself when two wacky burglars try to break into his home. While nothing can beat the original, this film—coming November 12—should be fun to watch if you’re looking for something new this holiday season.

7. The Beatles: Get Back

On November 25, Disney+ is bringing us one of the most intimate looks at The Beatles yet in this three-part documentary special directed by Peter Jackson. In this, you’ll see Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison like never before. And despite being made up of 50-year-old footage, the restoration makes it look as if it was filmed today.
