Rey (Daisy Ridley) meets up with Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Welcome to Star Wars month on Disney Plus. The second film in the most recent film trilogy, 2017's Star Wars: The Last Jedi, is coming to the streaming service on Dec. 26. Think of it as a late Christmas gift.

Of course, there's much more of the Disney Plus original series The Mandalorian, or as I like to call it, The Baby Yoda Show. This much-buzzed-about show wraps up its first season on Dec. 27. And Baby Yoda, presumably, blinks its eensy-weensy eyes, looks out at the world with a "pweeze pwotect me" gaze and pretty much just Baby Yodas its cuteness all over the damn place. Fall in love with him, you will. They better not put that sweet baby in any real danger, or we riot.

Speaking of The Mandalorian, on Dec. 18 the show is delivering an exclusive sneak peek at Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker with its second-to-the-last episode of the season. That's the day before the movie begins its in-theater previews, and two days before its worldwide opening on Dec. 20.

There's some non-Star Wars stuff, too. Thor: Ragnarok is now on Disney Plus, Jeff Goldblum is investigating everything from BBQ to denim in The World According to Jeff Goldblum, and 2016's colorful Alice: Through the Looking Glass arrives Dec. 11. Curiouser and curiouser indeed.
