The Christmas List (1997)

Movie Summary

Perfume saleslady Melody Parris feels like her life is in neutral. Her stick-in-the mud boyfriend won’t commit, and she gets passed over for a promotion at the store where she works. She decides to make a Christmas list. After it’s deposited in Santa’s mailbox at the store, she starts getting everything she wanted, but it doesn’t always turn out as she expected.

Is it available to purchase or rent?

No.

The Christmas List is one of the most requested movies each season, however it has not aired on TV since 2012. As far as we know, Disney/Buena Vista owns the rights to this movie. We encourage everyone to contact them directly. Perhaps if enough of us do, they will consider releasing it on DVD or at least airing it on one of their many networks.

        I also went to freeform.com Programming Feedback. / 25 days of Christmas / I’ve got a video or transcript request and pleaded with them to show this movie in 2021.

      I love this movie so much, I watch it every year at Christmas. It is such a feel-good, inspiring movie, The Christmas List. Mimi Rogers portrays the role of Melody with such humility and kindness. I wish TV network execs realised how well-written and well-acted this movie actually is and show it more often. It has a really big following. You would be hard-pressed to come across such an engaging, dramatic and humorous Christmastime storyline. And hand on heart, I have never seen a more touching and more heartfelt acting than the little boy Danny. This year I’m actually writing a Christmas List myself. <3 <3 to all fans of The Christmas List (1997).

    Everyone should bombard Disney’s Robert Iger with emails asking them to release this movie in 2020. Robert@disney.com

      The Disney contact did not work last year, so I tried another avenue on their website and I also sent a message to Freeform Programming
