During today’s TCA Summer Press event, Disney announced the release date for a new Disney Channel Original Movie, “Christmas Again”.
“Christmas Again” will be coming to the Disney Channel on Friday, 3rd December at 8:00 p.m. EST/PST. No Disney+ release date has yet been announced, but hopefully, it won’t be too long as otherwise, it’ll miss the Christmas period.
Disney fan-favorite Scarlett Estevez (“BUNK’D” and the upcoming “Ultra Violet & Black Scorpion”) stars as Rowena “Ro,” a high-spirited teenager experiencing a lackluster Christmas. Ro isn’t handling her parents’ divorce well because she wants her life back the way it was—her parents back together, her dad’s new girlfriend and son out of the picture, and their family traditions to remain the same. After a disappointing celebration with her family, including her sister Gabriela “Gabby,” Abuela Sofia and Abuelo Hector, she makes a wish to a neighborhood Santa for a “do-over” and unexpectedly finds herself reliving Christmas day over and over … and over again. Now, in order to break the strange magical loop, Ro must learn to appreciate her loving family as it is, as well as the true meaning of Christmas.
The film also stars Daniel Sunjata as Mike and Alexis Carra as Carolina, Ro’s parents; Ashlyn Jade Lopez as Gabby; Priscilla Lopez as Abuela Sofia; Beth Lacke as Mike’s girlfriend, Diane; Tony Amendola as Abuelo Hector; and veteran comedic actor Gary Anthony Williams as Santa. “Christmas Again” was directed by Andy Fickman (“Race to Witch Mountain”) and written by Doan La (“Black Friday”). Fickman also serves as an executive producer with long-time producing partner Betsy Sullenger (“Liv & Maddie”).
