Disney has announced a brand new holiday special called “Challenge Accepted! Disney Channel’s Epic Holiday Showdown”.

This new special will be airing on the Disney Channel on Sunday, December 6th, at 7:00 p.m. EST/PST and will also be available on the DisneyNOW app.

The special centers around Santa and Mrs. Claus, played by “Entertainment Tonight’s” Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner, respectively, as they enlist the help of Disney Channel stars to save the holidays from Ebenezer Scrooge (“Raven’s Home” star Anneliese van der Pol). The stars will take on a series of zany holiday-themed challenges to lift her evil curse on Christmas.


The special will include a performance by “ZOMBIES 2” star Meg Donnelly with one lucky fan, and a show-stopping number by global pop group “Now United.”

Also starring Milo Manheim, Chandler Kinney, Trevor Tordjman, Kylee Russell, Issac Ryan Brown, Navia Robinson, Sky Katz, Jason Maybaum, Mallory Mahoney, Raphael Alejandro, Will Buie Jr., Christian J. Simon, Ruth Righi, Ava Kolker and Ramon Reed.

No Disney+ release has yet been confirmed, however with the Disney Channel being the main provider of content for Disney+ and having the Disney branding in the title, I’d expect this show to be made available for a limited period in some regions such as the US.
