Disney has announced that the Touchstone Pictures classic comedy “Ernest Saves Christmas” is coming to Disney+ in the United States on Friday 26th November 2021.

When Santa Claus decides to retire and pass on his magic bag of Christmas surprises to a new Saint Nick, he enlists the aid of a hilarious assortment of characters. A perky teen runaway and hapless taxi driver Ernest P. Worrell must convince a skeptical kiddie-show host to take over the post of Father Christmas.

Ernest originally debuted as a character in a series of commercials, before getting its own TV series, “Hey Vern, It’s Ernest!” in 1988, along with multiple films.


This film was originally released in 1988 and was the first film to be shot at MGM Studios in Orlando at Walt Disney World, which is now known as “Hollywood Studios”.

Are you looking forward to watching “Ernest Saves Christmas” this holiday season?
