Casting Is Done and Production Underway For Upcoming Disney Channel Movie “Christmas Again”
Disney Channel has a brand new holiday TV movie in the works called Christmas Again and they’ve just released some of the exciting details!
The film will be a heartwarming comedy about the magic of Christmas and of Creating new Christmas traditions. According to Disney, casting has already been completed and production has kicked off for this new special that promises to be brimming with holiday cheer!
Lined up for the film is an already impressive cast that includes Scarlett Estevez star of Bunk’d as well as Daniel Sunjata (“Manifest,””Rescue Me”), Alexis Carra (“Fosse/Verdon”), newcomer Ashlyn Jade Lopez, Tony Award®-winner Priscilla Lopez (“A Chorus Line”), Beth Lacke (“High School Musical: The Musical: The Series”), Tony Amendola (“Annabelle”) and veteran comedic actor Gary Anthony Williams (“Star Wars Resistance”).
It was also revealed in a press release today that Andy Fickman Race To Witch Mountain will helm the film and will serve as an executive producer along with Betsy Sullenger. This is the successful team behind Disney Channel’s Liv & Maddie. The film was written by Doan La Keep Hope Alive.
In terms of plot, we do know that the film will center on Rowena “Ro” played by Estevez who is a high-spirited 11-year-old girl who isn’t having the best Christmas. Struggling with her parent’s (Sunjata and Carra) divorce, she wants her life back the way it was. This means her parents back together and her dad’s new girlfriend (Lacke) out of the picture.
After a disappointing celebration with her family including sister Gabby (Ashlyn Lopez), Abuela Sofia (Priscilla Lopez) and Aguelo Hector (Amendola), Ro makes a wish to a mall Santa for a “do-over” and finds herself reliving Christmas day over and over again. To break the strange magical loop, Ro must learn how to love her modern blended family.
