Apple TV+ is now more than a year old and the tech giant’s subscription streaming platform is still going strong, with a steady stream of new originals arriving this month. In December, that not only means family series Stillwater and nature documentary Earth at Night in Color, but also a Christmas special from Mariah Carey and the exclusive release of a classic festive treat, A Charlie Brown Christmas. But most promising of all is the debut of Cartoon Saloon’s latest, Wolfwalkers.
Here’s what’s coming soon to Apple TV+ in December 2020:
