5 Family Movies Added To Netflix In December

Every month, Netflix says goodbye to loads of streaming movies and television and adds a slew of new options for subscribers. Each month, we plan to take a look at the incoming films and pick 5 that look like a good fit for family viewing. And you know this already, but keep it age appropriate, just like you would with the chores you dole out.

Dec 1st

D2: The Mighty Ducks (1994)

Rating: PG for some mild language and rough hockey action
IMDB Parent’s Guide

We hope you’ve already introduced your kids to The Mighty Ducks, one of the best Disney film franchises of the 90’s. The first film is a great one to watch as a family, and D2 won’t let you down either. Gordon Bombay is back and has been named Team USA Hockey for the Junior Goodwill Games in California. Some familiar Ducks form his squad, along with some brand new team members, and a new rival in the form of team Iceland.


Harry and the Hendersons (1987)

Rating: PG
IMDB Parent’s Guide

Did you grow up on this one? If so, it’s a really fun film to propose for your next family night. When the Henderson family accidentally hits Bigfoot with their car, they take him home, assuming he’s dead. Of course, Harry is not only alive, but eventually turns into a member of the family.


The Angry Birds Movie (2016)

Rating: PG
IMDB Parent’s Guide

The Angry Birds universe finally got their own feature film earlier this year, and instead of renting or buying it, you can stream it on Netflix this December. When an island populated by happy, flightless birds are visited by mysterious green piggies, it’s up to three unlikely outcasts – Red, Chuck and Bomb – to figure out what the pigs are up to.


Honey, I Shrunk The Kids (1989)

Here’s another one you probably watch as a kid from the fine folks at Disney. Honey, I Shrunk The Kids is the first in a series of “Honey” films, and is probably the best of the bunch. The film features Rick Moranis as the “nutty scientist” Dad whose experiment literally shrinks his kids down to the size of ants. Once he finds out what he’s done, the race is on to find and protect his kids from the suddenly dangerous surroundings of their house and yard.

Rating: PG

Captain America: Civil War (2016)

Rating: PG-13 for extended sequences of violence, action and mayhem
IMDB Parent’s Guide

One of the biggest blockbusters of the summer is hitting Netflix just in time for Christmas. Actually, it’s available on Christmas Day! So after a long day or presents, food, and family fun, plop down on the couch and stream this action-packed thriller. It might be a bit too intense for the little guys, but fans of the Marvel universe of films are going to want to watch this, and probably more than once.
