Freeform joins ABC, Disney Channel, Disney XD and Disney Junior in celebrating “25 Days of Christmas” across all networks.

In “Life-Size 2,” Grace Manning (Francia Raisa) is the 20-something CEO of Marathon Toys, a huge toy company started by her mother that is most famous for manufacturing the iconic Eve doll. Grace is also in the middle of her quarter-life crisis, realizing she is in over her head as CEO. To make matters worse, her wild-child ways are causing the company’s stock to plummet. With the help of her young next-door neighbor, Grace’s old Eve doll (Tyra Banks) magically awakens to help get Grace back on track and give her the confidence to be the woman and leader Eve knows Grace can be. “Life-Size 2” premieres Sunday, Dec. 2, at 9:00 p.m. EST/PST.

For the first time ever as a 90-minute holiday special, Freeform’s “Pop Up Santa Holiday Special” has teamed up with sponsors to celebrate the spirit of the season through heartwarming moments including a home giveaway, a surprise baby shower at a military base, a family reunion of epic proportions, a celebration for two very special children at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and more. Hosted by Stephen “tWitch” Boss and Allison Holker, the special follows celebrity guests including ballerina Misty Copeland, former NFL athlete DeMarco Murray, “The Fosters’” Sherri Saum, Tommy Martinez from new Freeform drama “Good Trouble,” a special Marvel guest and, of course, Freeform Santa as they team up with Freeform to spread holiday cheer. The “Pop Up Santa Holiday Special” airs on Monday, Dec. 3, at 9:30 p.m. EST/PST.

“Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings: Holiday Magic” is back with an all-new installment once again hosted by Stephen “tWitch” Boss and Allison Holker. This year’s stunning and romantic weddings at Walt Disney World Resort will feature a spectacular “Mary Poppins Returns” theme and a special performance by country music superstar Martina McBride. The special is produced by Roberts Media and T Group Productions. Executive producers include Ann Lewis Roberts for Roberts Media, Simon Lythgoe of Legacy Productions and Jenny Daly for T Group. This year’s wedding magic premieres on Saturday, Dec. 8, at 8:00 p.m. EST/PST.

“No Sleep ‘Til Christmas” is an unexpected and whimsical holiday romantic-comedy about two insomniac strangers plagued by exhaustion. Lizzie (Odette Annable) is a high-end event planner preparing for her own life’s biggest event – her wedding. She lies awake nightly while her devoted fiancé Josh (Charles Michael Davis) rests peacefully, unaware of how to solve her issue. When a sleep-deprived incident causes her to run into Billy (Dave Annable), a low-key bartender who is just as sleepless and frustrated as she is, they discover that they can only fall asleep while 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. “No Sleep ‘Til Christmas” debuts Monday, Dec. 10, at 9:00 p.m. EST/PST.
