Here’s a list of shows you can stream with your family this holiday season:

A filmed version of the Broadway play inspired by 1992 Disney movie. So, full circle there. The story itself is inspired by the real-life newsboy strike of 1899. While the original movie was a box office and critical disappointment, the musical earned eight Tony nominations and won two. (More on Broadway shows available streaming this season here.)

Will this stingy property owner evict the entire town of Fullerville on Christmas Eve, or will her greed give way to the Christmas spirit? Directed by famed choreographer Debbie Allen.
The Christmas Chronicles 2 (Via Netflix)
Per Netflix: It’s been two years since siblings Kate (Darby Camp) and Teddy Pierce (Judah Lewis) saved Christmas, and a lot has changed. Kate, now a cynical teenager, is reluctantly spending Christmas in Cancun with her mom’s new boyfriend and his son Jack (Jahzir Bruno). Unwilling to accept this new version of her family, Kate decides to run away. But when a mysterious, magical troublemaker named Belsnickel threatens to destroy the North Pole and end Christmas for good, Kate and Jack are unexpectedly pulled into a new adventure with Santa Claus (Kurt Russell). Written and directed by Chris Columbus (Home Alone, Harry Potter) and co-starring Goldie Hawn.
