Disney Channel Lines Up Christmas Again Original Movie


Production has commenced on the Disney Channel original movie Christmas Again, a comedy about the magic of Christmas and creating new holiday traditions.

The cast of the holiday movie features Scarlett Estevez (BUNK’D), Daniel Sunjata (Manifest, I), Alexis Carra (Fosse/Verdon), Ashlyn Jade Lopez, Priscilla Lopez (A Chorus Line), Beth Lacke (High School Musical: The Musical: The Series), Tony Amendola (Annabelle) and Gary Anthony Williams (Star Wars Resistance). Andy Fickman (Race to Witch Mountain) is directing the movie, which was written by Doan La (Black Friday).

Christmas Again centers on high-spirited 11-year-old Rowena “Ro” (Estevez) during a disappointing Christmas. Struggling with her parents’ divorce and her father’s new family, she makes a wish to a mall Santa for a “do-over” of the holiday—and unexpectedly finds herself reliving Christmas day over and over and over again. In order to break the magical loop, Ro must learn to love her modern blended family as it is and the true meaning of Christmas.
