Disney has done a lot of Christmas films over the years, and it looks like The Naughty Nine is going to be just another one to add to the list. At least, at first glance, it does. However, all you have to do is watch the new trailer for it to find out that this is certainly a bizarre Christmas film—one of the most bizarre I’ve seen so far that Disney intends for a young audience. For starters: it’s apparent a kid version of a heist film, but for Christmas? Don’t believe me? Then why not check out that trailer below, and see if this is the Chrismas film you want your kids to see for yourself?
The Naughty Nine: Trailer Details
Disney is proud to present The Naughty Nine with that trailer above on YouTube. As you can see above, this is basically a heist film. It’s a kid-friendly version of a heist film, but a heist film nonetheless. It’s like if Disney made a Christmas-themed version of Ocean’s 11…but for kids. Some of the plot points in the trailer seem a bit…morally questionable, to be honest. Although, I guess that’s the point. I guess some audiences might find the idea of a bunch of kids robbing Santa Claus blind quite humorous. I can only guess how it will actually turn out for the kids though.
Fortunately, it won’t be that long until you and your kids can see how this heist turns out. The trailer reveals that The Naughty Nine will make its debut on November 22, 2023, on the Disney Channel. If you and your kids want to watch it on Disney+ though, then you’re going to have to wait for November 23, 2023.
That’s not all, folks! Disney also has the official synopsis for The Naughty Nine for us to peruse today. You can check that out below:
Fifth grader ANDY has been a bit of a troublemaker this year. When Christmas morning rolls around and Andy gets stiffed by Santa, he realizes he’s on the Naughty List. Feeling unfairly maligned, Andy pulls together a crack team of fellow naughty listers to pull off an elaborate heist in the North Pole to get the presents that Andy and the others feel they deserve. In the process of finding their gifts, the gang discovers that the spirit of Christmas is more about giving than taking, and decide to face Santa and do the right thing.
