What's new on Netflix in December: 'Guardians 2,' 'Santa Clause' are coming

USA TODAY - Santa Clause is coming to town. And so is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

USA TODAY can exclusively reveal that those titles will be available on Netflix in December, just in time for the holidays. Here are a  few other releases and their debut dates, which we can share ahead of the full monthly list:

12/5 Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

We gave 3.5 stars to the super-powered sequel starring a tree and a racoon that came out earlier this year. 

12/12 The Santa Clause 1-3

The 1994 film about Tim Allen growing a white beard in five minutes, and then the two less-stellar movies that followed it, will get you into the Christmas spirit.

12/22 Bright 

Will Smith and Joel Edgerton in blue Orc makeup star in the Netflix original film Bright, from Suicide Squad and End of Watch director David Ayer.

12/29 Bill Nye Saves the World, Season 2

The Science Guy is back with a new season of his show filled with experiments, panels, experts, field reports and celebrities.
