Stan: What's New For December 11 - 17, 2018

What started out as just any old week on Stan has turned into quite an event, as the huge list of movie additions below shows (and actually, the what's new movie list should be longer, but I can't be bothered to search for all the new titles that have been added, that's not on the "What's New" page). Disney comes to Stan, and the studio's new deal with the streaming network means a whole heap of new additions that weren't previously announced.


Before we get to all the Disney stuff, there is the new season of RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars - season 4 of the hit show airs new episodes weekly on Stan.

There is also the No Activity: The Night Before Christmas, it's the Christmas Special for the Australian version of the show. And of course, the big addition of the week (at least before the Disney announcement) was the first season of The Handmaid's Tale, available to stream in HD or in 4K - it's a must-see show for fans of politics, Dystopian fiction or just plain good old storytelling, and if you haven't already caught it on SBS On Demand or Hulu, then this is your chance.

Then there's the Disney stuff. Lots of complete seasons, and single season tasters, of shows from the Disney Channel, too many to list really, but highlights include the complete series Hannah Montana, the first season of the highly rated Star Wars Rebels, and new shows like Tangled: The Series, DuckTales and Big Hero 6 The Series.

No excuses for not finding something to watch, this week.

Movies, Documentaries:

Again, way too many new movies to go through, but here are some of my personal highlights. For those that like new movies, then the likes of Black Panther, Thor: Ragnarok, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Coco and A Wrinkle In Time should be enough to sate your Marvel, Lucasfilm, Pixar and general Disney thirst.

Still from The Little Mermaid

And if classics are what you're after, then I wouldn't go past The Little Mermaid, The Lion King or the original Toy Story.

Of course, being near Christmas time, watching Frozen once, twice or fifteen times, is a must.

Still a fantastic film, but perhaps not quite the right one for Christmas, is Oscar winner Life is Beautiful. Maybe watch it after the new year.

I know I've mentioned it before, but The Founder is interesting if you want a version of the story of how McDonald's started. While Passengers is a solid sci-fi if you can ignore the slightly creepy premise.

Phew, I think that's it for this week.
