I know it’s not even officially Summer yet but it’s time to start thinking Halloween and Christmas! FreeForm is known for it’s magical holiday programming and today they have announced some exciting updates that will roll out this Fall.
This year, FreeForm will expand its holiday dominance with over 1000 hours of themed programming kicking off with “31 Nights of Halloween” on October 1, 2018. This is increase from the annual “13 Nights of Halloween.” The network also introduced Freeform “Santa” (“Shadowhunters” star Isaiah Mustafa) and November’s “Kick Off to Christmas.” Then the iconic “25 Days of Christmas” returns to the entire Disney|ABC Television on December 1, 2018.
From the executive producers of the “Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings” series, Ann Lewis Roberts, Simon Lythgoe and Jenny Daly, “Decorating Disney: Halloween” will be part of “31 Days of Halloween.” This behind-the-scenes special will reveal all the tricks and treats behind the transformation of the Walt Disney World and Disneyland resorts into the scariest, yet still magical, places on Earth! Freeform will continue the spooktacular festivities with a celebration for one of the most beloved Halloween movies with the “Hocus Pocus 25th Anniversary Extravaganza.”
Two Freeform original holiday films, “Life Size 2” and “Sleeping Together,” will also be part of the holiday lineup. In the former, Tyra Banks, who will also executive produce, reprises her iconic role as a doll that comes to life; but in the sequel, Eve has grown up. This time she’s magically awakened to help a young woman learn to live and love again. Along the way, Eve experiences the ups and downs of real life in an edgy, fun, modern Christmas movie.
“Sleeping Together” is an unexpected and whimsical holiday rom-com about two insomniac strangers plagued by exhaustion. After a brief meeting, they discover that they can only fall asleep if they are sleeping next to each other. What seems like an odd coincidence, and frankly a disruption to their lives, might be more meaningful than they’d like to admit.
