1. Candy Cane Lane

Streaming Dec. 1

Kicking off the holiday season is the original film "Candy Cane Lane," a delightful Christmas comedy featuring Eddie Murphy as Chris Carver. Determined to win his neighborhood's annual Christmas decorating contest, Chris makes a shady deal with a mischievous elf named Pepper (Jillian Bell). The result? The 12 days of Christmas come to life, causing havoc for Chris, his family, and the entire town. With the charming Tracee Ellis Ross also in the cast, this film promises to be a humorous and enjoyable treat for the whole family.

2. Merry Little Batman

- Streaming Dec. 8

For animated adventure enthusiasts, "Merry Little Batman" is set to swoop in on December 8. This original animated film follows Batman (voiced by Luke Wilson) and his son, Damian Wayne (Yonas Kibreab). When Batman receives an emergency call from the Justice League, promising to be back before Christmas Day, Damian takes matters into his own hands. Like a caped crusader version of the Grinch, Damian dons the bat suit to protect Gotham from the villains stealing Christmas. Get ready for action, laughs, and a heartwarming tale of family.

3. Asteroid City

- Streaming Dec. 12

If you missed it in theaters, the star-studded Wes Anderson film "Asteroid City" is making its way to Prime Video on December 12. Set against the backdrop of 1955 in the American desert, the film follows Augie Steenbeck (Jason Schwartzman) and his four children as they navigate grief following the death of their mother. Blending family drama with the whimsy of a Junior Stargazer/Space Cadet convention, "Asteroid City" promises a unique cinematic experience that goes beyond the surface.

4. Every Body

- Streaming Dec. 19

Shifting gears to a thought-provoking documentary, "Every Body" arrives on December 19. This powerful film explores the lives of three intersex individuals who overcame secrecy, shame, and unauthorized childhood surgeries to lead successful adult lives. By sharing their stories, they aim to shed light on the need to end nonconsenting surgeries. The documentary follows their journey to advocate for a bill condemning these surgeries and normalizing every body, breaking free from the limitations of gender binaries.

5. The Flash

- Streaming Dec. 25

On Christmas Day, brace yourself for the superhero spectacle "The Flash." Starring Ezra Miller as Barry Allen/The Flash, the film follows a time-altering adventure where Barry attempts to change the past to prevent a tragic event. However, the unintended consequences lead to a world where General Zod has returned, forcing Barry to seek help from a different Batman and an unfamiliar Kryptonian. Despite its mixed reviews, "The Flash" promises an action-packed holiday ride for fans of the superhero genre.

6. Sound of Freedom

- Streaming Dec. 26

Closing out the month is the gripping true story "Sound of Freedom." Released on December 26, the film follows Tim Ballard (Jim Caviezel), a former Department of Homeland Security Special Agent turned vigilante. Inspired by a true story, Tim embarks on a mission to save children from traffickers worldwide. Fueled by the urgency to rescue a captive girl in the Colombian jungle, Tim puts his life on the line to combat the horrors of child trafficking.

In conclusion, Prime Video's December lineup offers a perfect blend of holiday joy, animated escapades, cinematic wonders, thought-provoking narratives, and superhero thrills. With something for every viewer, it's shaping up to be a month filled with entertainment and meaningful stories.
