Do you love Christmas and Disney? Then we have good news for you! Disney announced their new Disney Channel Original Movie Christmas Again just started production! The movie is going to be a heartwarming comedy about the magic of Christmas and creating new Christmas traditions. And we have all the deets for you! So buckle up!
The movie is filming in Chicago and features a talented cast that includes Disney Channel fan-favorite Scarlett Estevez, (you might know her from BUNK’D) along with Daniel Sunjata (from Manifest and Rescue Me), Alexis Carra (from Fosse/Verdon), newcomer Ashlyn Jade Lopez, Tony Award-winner Priscilla Lopez (from A Chorus Line), Beth Lacke (from our Disney+ favorite High School Musical: The Musical: The Series), Tony Amendola (from Annabelle) and veteran comedic actor Gary Anthony Williams (from Star Wars Resistance).
Furthermore, Andy Fickman is directing the movie and will serve as an executive producer with long-time producing partner Betsy Sullenger. The two are reuniting as the successful team who brought us the Disney Channel hit series Liv & Maddie. Christmas Again was written by Doan La. We are excited about this movie!
Christmas Again centers on Rowena or Ro, played by Scarlett Estevez, a high-spirited 11-year-old girl 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. She also wants her dad’s new girlfriend (Beth Lacke) and her son out of the picture and their family traditions remain the same. After a disappointing celebration with her family, including sister Gabriela or Gabby (Ashlyn Lopez), Abuela Sofia (Priscilla Lopez), and Abuelo Hector (Tony Amendola), Ro makes a wish to a mall Santa (Gary Anthony Williams) to get a do-over. However, she 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.
Now, that sounds like a Christmas nightmare? Or a dream? Honestly, a never-ending Christmas Day doesn’t sound too bad to us but we are excited to see how this movie will turn out! It sure sounds absolutely Christmassy! What do you guys think? Are you excited about Christmas Again?
