Jaleel White To Reprise Steve Urkel Role In New Animated Film
You can have a new addition to your holiday films rotation. Jaleel White will reprise his role as Steve Urkel from Family Matters in a new holiday animated film, Urkel Saves Santa: The Movie. Urkel’s goal is to spread more holiday cheer around town, but he ends up creating a disaster due to his goofy ways.
“The holiday season is here, and brilliant but accident-prone super genius Steve Urkel has only one mission — to make the holidays the best they can be for everyone! However, things are off to a not so merry start after he ruins a celebration at his local shopping mall and humiliates the department store Santa,” the Warner Bros. produced film’s descriptor reads. “Hoping to make things right, Steve invents a device that helps people spread holiday cheer, but it only manages to make things worse. Using his big brain and his even bigger heart, it’s up to Steve to help the city rediscover the holiday spirit.”
Urkel messes up several times in the trailer, prompting the actor to quote his famous line: “Did I do that?”
While his attempts to spread holiday cheer around the neighborhood get disgruntled looks from the residents, they know that his heart is in the right place.
In addition to White, the film also features the voices of Nicole Byer, Roy Wood Jr., and Kym Whitley.
Urkel Saves Santa: The Movie is now available on demand.
Family Matters aired for nine seasons from 1989 – 1998. The Winslows created 215 episodes spanning the nine seasons that they were on air. The cast, which included members Jo Marie Payton, Reginald VelJohnson, Kellie Shanygne Williams, Darius McCrary, Jaleel White, Telma Hopkins, Shawn Harrison, and Bryton James, all showed up to People’s cast reunion in 2017. You can watch their reunion here.
