There are many great Christmas movies DisneyPlus In 2022, with the holiday approaching, here are five of the streaming service’s best. Be warned though, some can provoke decades of debate.
The original 1994 film, starring Tim Allen, has the perfect Christmas setup: magic, Santa Claus and an estranged family come together. It’s also very funny. Scott Calvin (Allen) accidentally kills Santa Claus and has to take his place. He slowly transforms into Santa Claus, but also discovers how much his son means to him. This film is especially important because Disney Plus just released a sequel starring Tim Allen called The Santa Clauses.
The Muppet Christmas Carol
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens is one of the best Christmas stories ever written and the Muppet version is one of the best adaptations. It’s packed with really well-timed gags, a selection of amazing songs, and the wonderful storytelling duo of Gonzo (as Dickens) and Rizzo the Rat. Additionally, it never fails to tell the story with the whole heart of the original. Michael Caine is also a perfect Ebenezer Scrooge.
Despite several sequels, the original 1990 film still holds up. Macaulay Culkin is perfect as a young Kevin McAllister who accidentally stays home alone over Christmas when his extended family flies to France. He is forced to confront two thieves with a series of traps and deceptions that make the film particularly memorable. He also learns the importance of family, even if they don’t always get along.
The Guardians of the Galaxy Christmas Special
The Marvel Holiday Special is only a short film, but it’s packed with heart, family and holiday spirit alongside the action and humor that Guardians of the Galaxy are known for. Come see how Drax (Dave Bautista) and Mantis (Pom Klementieff) try to give Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) some holiday cheer by kidnapping legendary earth hero Kevin Bacon (himself). It contains some big revelations that will also feature in Volume 3 of 2023.
Yes it is. For those who want something a little different than the warm-hearted family drama of most Christmas movies, there’s always John McClane (Bruce Willis). Over 30 years later, Die Hard is still one of the best action movies of all time. McClane and his estranged wife Holly (Bonnie Bedelia) are trapped in the Nakatomi Plaza building after it was attacked by terrorists led by Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman). Christmas couldn’t be more exciting.
