It might be the middle of July, but Disney is getting ready for the holidays, as it has released a sneak peek at an upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie, “Christmas Again”.
The film stars Scarlett Etevez Rowena, who plays “Ro”, a high-spirited 11-year-old girl, is experiencing a lackluster Christmas. She’s not handling her parents’ (Daniel Sunjata and Alexis Carra) divorce well because she wants her life back the way it was—her parents back together, her dad’s new girlfriend (Beth Lacke) and son out of the picture, and their family traditions to remain the same.
After a disappointing celebration with her family, including sister Gabriela “Gabby” (Ashlyn Lopez), Abuela Sofia (Priscilla Lopez), and Abuelo Hector (Tony Amendola), she makes a wish to a mall Santa (Gary Anthony Williams) 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 love her modern blended family as it is, as well as the true meaning of Christmas.
Check out the sneak peek below:
The movie comes from the successful team behind Disney Channel’s fan-favorite series Liv and Maddie, director Andy Fickman (Race to Witch Mountain) and his long-time producing partner, Betsy Sullenger.
“Christmas Again” is coming to the Disney Channel in December. No Disney+ release date has yet been announced.
