Disney Channel is back at it with a holiday DCOM! Christmas Again will air December 3 at 8 p.m. on Disney Channel. Before you sit down with your hot cocoa and popcorn to watch, HollywoodLife has an EXCLUSIVE video of the cast that has all the essential deets on this DCOM.
“Ro is spending her first Christmas with a new stepmother and a new little stepbrother, which is really different for Ro,” Scarlett Estevez reveals about her character. “She ends up having her Christmas not go the way that she exactly wants it to so she finds a way to change that.”
This holiday story focuses on Ro’s Latino family. Christmas Again will showcase many aspects of Latin culture as the movie explores this blended family. “Singing ‘Silent Night’ with Priscilla Lopez was like a childhood dream come true,” Beth Lacke, who plays Diane, admits.
Christmas is right around the corner, so watching holiday-themed movies during this time of year is always a special treat for families. Christmas Again is definitely a holiday movie to watch year after year. Scarlett reveals why she thinks this movie is perfect for the whole family. “Just the way that this family is, I think a lot of people can relate to and you can feel the joy when you’re watching the movie,” she says.
In the movie, Ro isn’t handling her parents’ divorce well and really wants her life to go back to the way it was. After a disappointing celebration with her family, including her sister Gabby, Abuela Sofia, and Abuelo Hector, Ro makes a wish to a neighborhood Santa 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 appreciate her loving family as it is, as well as the true meaning of Christmas.
