Hello! Welcome to your daily compilation of what's happening in pop culture.

This morning, my phone pinged with another news alarm that made me breathe and I decided it was: time has come for Christmas. Normally I have a strict, not-before-Thanksgiving rule for festive songs and movies, but this year I'm with Oprah who released its annual holiday list with favorite things today. " It's a wonderful life " is finally available for streaming (on Amazon), and I'll spend this evening watching it rolling through Oprah's incredibly expensive taste.

The new trailer to Andy Serki's "Jungle Book" remake (not confused with Disney's 2016 version) is out: It promises lots of mechanical and C.G.I. animal, Matthew Rhys as a baddie and a beautiful stellar cast cast that includes Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and Benedict Cumberbatch. " Mowgli: Jungle Legend " will be on Netflix and in selected theaters on December 7th.
