Disney+ has quickly become the streaming service everyone is going to have come Nov. 12. No, it's not going to "kill" Netflix. But it's for sure going to be a boon for Hulu, thanks to that $12.99 bundle along with ESPN+. And it's also going to be a boon us as lovers of great shows because, well, Disney. And Star Wars.

Santa's kid is bored. But she's got a killer voice. And her brother, Nick, who's taken over the family business. Santa disappears just a week before Christmas. And, well, hijinx ensue.
There will be singing.
