Get ready for some serious nostalgia coming your way with Netflix’s new releases for December. While the streaming site has its usual variety, kids of the ’90s are really getting spoiled this holiday season. Whether you celebrate the holidays of December or not, these movies and shows coming to Netflix are gifts that everyone can enjoy.

From childhood classics to new releases, Netflix is taking care of us this December. Here are some of our favorite movies and TV shows that will be streaming on a television (and/or computer…or both) near you and will help you send off 2016 in cinematic style.

*All releases are on Dec. 1 unless otherwise noted.*

Honey, I Shrunk the Kids

We guarantee you never thought an ant would make you cry so much.

The Little Rascals

Alfalfa and Darla are #relationshipgoals.

D2: The Mighty Ducks

Not as good as the original, but with Joshua Jackson still in it, can you really complain? And when else do Icelanders get to be the villains in a movie?

Picture Perfect

One of Jennifer Aniston’s earlier romcom roles. Perfect for a game of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon!

The Crucible

Winona Ryder and Daniel Day-Lewis give powerhouse performances (when does Day-Lewis not give a powerhouse performance?) in this movie version of Arthur Miller’s play about the Salem witch trials.

The Legend of Bagger Vance

Will Smith, Matt Damon, and Charlize Theron all in one movie? Yes, please!

The Angry Birds Movie

If you didn’t want to pay to see this animated movie in theaters, you can now pick out which star is voicing which character from the comfort of your own home.

Fuller House Season 2

Did I mention the ’90s nostalgia? Because D.J., Stephanie, and Kimmy are back for Season 2 of the revival series on Dec. 9.


Saying goodbye to President Barack Obama is not going to be easy come January, so Netflix has you covered with their biopic about young Obama premiering on Dec. 16.

Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War

Netflix’s Christmas gift to all of us is releasing Marvel’s latest Avengers-themed film on Dec. 25. If you can get along with your family over the holidays, surely Captain America and Iron Man can work something out.
