There’s nothing quite like settling down and snuggling up with family and loved ones on the sofa at Christmas time. Maybe making a hot chocolate, wrapping yourself in your duvet and watching one in bed. Add a fantastically festive film into that and it’s even better. Let’s take a look at some of the best Disney Christmas movies you can enjoy this season.
The Santa Clause
Tim Allen stepped into Santa Claus’ boots for the Santa Clause trilogy. Expect plenty of laughs as the master of 90s comedy gets to grips with his new role.
I’ll Be Home for Christmas
Speaking of Tim Allen, Jonathan Taylor Thomas took a break from being Tim’s son in Home Improvement to star in I’ll Be Home for Christmas. After getting stuck in the dessert, the main character struggles to get home in time for Christmas, but finds out a lot about him and the holiday in the process.
This is a Disney+ original movie starring Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader as Santa’s kids. When her brother gets cold feet about taking over the ‘family business’, Noelle goes on a journey to find him and discover just what Christmas is about.
The Muppet Christmas Carol
Enjoy the Christmas tale with a Muppet twist. You’ll enjoy Kermit the Frog as Bob Cratchit, The Great Gonzo as Charles Dickins and Michael Caine as Scrooge. The old miser gets his redemption and transformation on Christmas Eve with plenty of songs to sing along to.
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe
Perhaps not one that you’d class as a Christmas film but Father Christmas does show with gifts for our heroes and heroines! Four siblings travel to a mysterious world to learn of their destiny and help free it from the clutches of evil.
The Christmas Star
This 1986 film might not be one you remember but it’s worth a watch. It’s all about an escaped prisoner who convinces two kids that he’s Santa Claus. In classic Christmas film tradition, he discovers the real meaning of the holiday season. A funny fact here, Edward Asner who plays the lead, ends up portraying Santa Claus for real, some years later, in Elf!
Head on an adventure with Elsa and Ana as they try to fix an infinite winter. You should also check out Olaf’s Frozen Adventure which is full of festive mischief.
Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas
All your favourite characters from the original film enjoy Christmas antics together.
Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas
Mickey Mouse and his friends enjoy Christmas in three different stories which will teach viewers of all ages all about the festive season. There’s even a connection between one of the stories A Very Goofy Christmas and the Beauty &The Beast Christmas film above. See if you can spot it!
Bonus Film – Home Alone
“You guys give up, or are you thirsty for more?” If you have Disney+, you’ll be able to stream Home Alone whenever you want to. That includes the brilliant Home Alone 2: Lost In New York, along with the rest of the franchise movies we’d rather forget were made. This is because Disney now own Fox and with that, were able to add these legendary Macaulay Culkin films to it’s streaming service.
We can’t wait to make some popcorn and enjoy some festive flicks. Let us know what your favourite Disney Christmas movies are.
