The on-screen stepbrothers reunite this holiday season for the kid-friendly comedy movie Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh. Though the actors have reportedly moved on to develop their own careers, neither of them forgot their beginnings on the Nickelodeon comedy series. On December 5, fans of the show will be able to watch the comedy duo once more in the special release of their Christmas flick.
On Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh, trouble preys once again on the brothers as Drake (Drake Bell) stirs up mischief and causes Josh (Josh Peck) to be put in jail. In order to stay out of prison, the two of them must fulfill their promise of giving a foster child and her family the “best Christmas ever.”
Back in the cast is Henry Winkler and the devious Megan, played by Miranda Cosgrove. Also returning are other series regulars like Jerry Trainor, Allison Scagliotti, Yvette Nicole Brown, Scott Halberstadt and Alec Medlock. New faces to be spotted are Bailee Madison, MMA fighter Kimbo Slice and David Pressman. Madison will be playing the young girl asking for an exceptional holiday gift, Slice was cast as a kind ex-criminal, while Pressman will serve as the parole officer who wants to see Drake and Josh fail in their mission.
On the video from ET found below, we get to see the stars of Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh take their fans on a tour of the set.
In addition to his appearance on the movie, Drake Bell is also responsible for some of the music on Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh. An accomplished musician, he joins his band in performing the tracks “Jingle Bells” and “The 12 Days of Christmas” for the two-hour film.
