Freeform's '25 Days of Christmas:' All the Movies That the Network Has Lined up for the Holidays
The Christmas season has just gotten more exciting with a great line up of movies for Freeform channel’s “25 Days of Christmas.”
It has been an annual tradition for the channel to air the best holiday-themed and uplifting movies 25 days in a row throughout the month of December. The treat starts with the “Kickoff to Christmas” special throughout November.
For 30 days in November, just before homes go all-out with the Christmas festivities, children and adults alike will get to enjoy a wide array of movies.
These movies include: “Paddington,” “Rise of the Guardians,” and several Disney movies, including “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” “Zootopia,” “Hercules,” “Moana,” “Finding Nemo,” “Finding Dory,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Pocahontas,” and “Toy Story.”
This year’s “25 Days of Christmas” programming is expected to start at 7 a.m. ET on Sunday, December 1 and end after the 12 a.m. film ends on Thursday, December 26, as reported by Good Housekeeping.
About nine films will play each day to warm the hearts of TV viewers, especially on cold Christmas days and nights.
The full lineup of the films has not been unveiled yet. But according to Broadway World, the lineup will include “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and “Frosty the Snowman.”
This is the first time ever the two iconic films will be shown on cable TV. Other Christmas favorites to be shown are “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town” and “The Little Drummer Boy.”
