Premieres Coming To Disney+ UK & STAR In December 2021

Disney has released their full list of upcoming premieres for December on Disney+ and Star in the UK, as the streaming service heads toward the end of 2021… And, of course, the return of a certain bounty hunter! Here is a breakdown of all the premieres landing on the streaming service next month.

Disney+ & STAR Originals December Highlights

The Last Duel – 1st December 2021

Jodie Comer gives a stunning performance in this thought-provoking drama set against the brutality of 14th century France from visionary filmmaker Ridley Scott. Based on actual events, the film centres on the accusation by Marguerite de Carrouges (Comer) that she was brutally assaulted by Jacques Le Gris (Adam Driver), the friend of her husband, Jean de Carrouges (Matt Damon). In order to protect his pride and prove his wife’s claim, de Carrouges requests to fight Le Gris to the death. Now, all three lives hang in the balance in this society that holds that the victor of this grisly duel will be determined by God. Moreover, if de Carrouges dies in this fight, Marguerite will be put to death.

The Big Leap – 1st December 2021

From 20th Television and Fox Entertainment comes this big-hearted, rowdy dramedy which follows a group of diverse, down-on-their-luck characters attempting to change their lives by participating in a potentially life-ruining, reality dance show.

Diary of Wimpy Kid – 3rd December 2021

Greg Heffley is a scrawny but ambitious kid with an active imagination and big plans to be rich and famous – he just has to survive middle school first. To make matters worse, Greg’s lovable best friend Rowley seems to coast through life and succeed at everything without even trying! As details of his hilarious – and often disastrous – attempts to fit in, fill the pages of his journal, Greg learns to appreciate true friends and the satisfaction that comes from standing up for what is right.

Welcome to Earth – 8th December 2021

It might seem humans have mapped every inch of our planet’s surface, but look closer and you’ll discover that there is still so much more to uncover and the age of exploration is far from over. Welcome to Earth, a Disney+ original series from National Geographic, follows two-time Academy Award nominee Will Smith on an extraordinary, once-in-a-lifetime adventure around the world to explore Earth’s greatest wonders and reveal its most hidden secrets.

Throughout the six-part limited series produced by visionary Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Darren Aronofsky, Protozoa Pictures, Jane Root’s Nutopia and Westbrook Studios, Will is guided by elite explorers on an awe-inspiring journey, getting up close and personal with some of the most thrilling spectacles on the planet – from volcanoes that roar in silence, to deserts that move beyond our perception, to animal swarms with minds of their own. Combining breathtaking cinematography with Will’s boundless curiosity and enthusiasm, the blockbuster series is an exciting, multi-sensory ride through Earth’s most mind-bending portals.

Ron’s Gone Wrong – 15th December 2021

20th Century Studios and Locksmith Animation’s Ron’s Gone Wrong is the story of Barney, a socially awkward middle-schooler and Ron, his new walking, talking, digitally-connected device, which is supposed to be his “Best Friend out of the Box.” Ron’s hilarious malfunctions, set against the backdrop of the social media age, launch them into an action-packed journey in which boy and robot come to terms with the wonderful messiness of true friendship.

The Wonder Years – 22nd December 2021


A coming-of-age story set in the late 1960s that takes a nostalgic look at a Black middle-class family in Montgomery, Alabama through the eyes of imaginative 12-year-old, Dean.

The Book Of Boba Fett – 29th December 2021

This thrilling new Star Wars adventure finds legendary bounty hunter, Boba Fett, and mercenary Fennec Shand navigating the Galaxy’s underworld when they return to the sands of Tatooine to stake their claim on the territory once ruled by Jabba the Hutt and his crime syndicate. Starring Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen and executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni and Robert Rodriguez, The Book of Boba Fett is set within the timeline of The Mandalorian.
