The weather outside may be frightful, but Disney Channel has some pretty epic holiday-themed movies! From Christmas to Hanukkah, they’ve got you covered — and they’re all available for streaming via Disney+.
When you’re not stringing the lights outside or baking cookies, get your family together for a viewing of The Ultimate Christmas Present. Starring Brenda Song before she was known to Suite Life of Zack and Cody fans as London Tipton, the flick follows the story of two best friends who find a weather machine in the woods and make it snow in California. When Santa Claus discovers that his machine is missing, he and two trusty elves head to Los Angeles from the North Pole in order to save Christmas.
While the classics, like Good Luck Charlie, It’s Christmas! and Full-Court Miracle are also iconic, some fans may want to check out Christmas Again, which premiered in December 2021. In the movie, a teenager named Ro — played by Scarlett Estevez — is upset over her parents’ divorce, so makes a wish to her local Santa Claus for a holiday “do-over.” Once her wish is granted, Ro wakes up and relives Christmas — again and again.
“She just had the right attitude,” the movie’s director, Andy Fickman, told TV Insider in December 2021. “I’ve had the pleasure of working with a lot of kids, sometimes early in their careers. You’re just looking for someone whose natural instinct is that. You just can’t teach the comedy, and she’s just really fun when the cameras aren’t rolling. She’s just got a lot of energy, and you realize that’s who she is. She’s great. She comes from a great family. They’ve done a spectacular job. Her head is on straight, but she is so specific, knows her work. We’ll look at the clock and say, ‘Alright, we got 20 minutes to get this.’ And every single time she’d nail it.”
If you were a fan of Good Luck Charlie while the show was airing on the network, then you’ll remember their holiday film: Good Luck Charlie, It’s Christmas! The Duncan family hits the road before celebrating Christmas in Palm Springs, but they get separated when Teddy (Bridget Mendler) decides to go to Florida with a friend. Chaos ensues as the family attempts to get everyone together for the holidays.
