Jenna Ortega Teases The Funniest Scenes in 'Stuck in Christmas' Movie (Exclusive)

With just a few days to go until the Stuck in the Middle holiday movie — and we’ve got all the good details from star Jenna Ortega!

In Stuck in Christmas, Harley convinces the rest of her family to take a trip to Florida to visit their abuela for Christmas because they haven’t seen her in a long time.

“But this is the Diaz family,” Jenna says, “So of course, chaos ensues and we go on this big crazy adventure that leaves us to the middle of nowhere with no cash, no credit cards and no phones.”

When we chatted with her about the funniest scenes fans will get to watch, Jenna pointed out that Malachi Barton and Nicolas Bechtel, who play twins Beast and Lewie, get all good ones.

“The boys always make jokes at the worst times,” she tells us. “They’re like the perfect comedic relief there.”

One of the funniest they filmed though was a karaoke scene!

“One of the scenes that fans will really enjoy is where the kids have a lip syncing party, and we were all lip syncing to a song,” Jenna shares. “It was a lot like the Carpool Karaoke, because we were in a bus and it was all of us, and it was so much fun to shoot.”

Stuck at Christmas will debut on Disney Channel THIS Friday, December 8th!

The Stuck in the Middle holiday movie — Stuck at Christmas — premieres NEXT WEEK!

JJJ sat down with star Jenna Ortega to chat about the movie where she opened up about her absolute favorite scenes, and what exactly the Iron Elf is.

“It’s really funny because we don’t actually know what it’s about,” Jenna confessed about the main event in the movie. “We’re going to call it an obstacle course for now.”

It’s no surprise at all that those were some of her favorite scenes to film though, even if she feels like one of the producers is out to get her with them.

“I think the producer on our show always puts Harley in these situations on purpose,” Jenna told us, laughing about it. “She told me the other day that I could be on one of those obstacle type of shows, because of all the stuff she has me do.”

She adds, “For the movie leading into season two at the water park, and there was an obstacle course there and for this one, it’s just crazier.”

After the movie was announced, fans started to draw comparisons between it and the Good Luck Charlie, It’s Christmas special — and Jenna‘s taking them as a compliment because she was one of the biggest GLC fans ever!

“I was so excited to do a Christmas movie with the show because the Good Luck Charlie one was filmed in Palm Springs, which is where I’m from,” she explained.

And once she knew the plot of the Stuck at Christmas movie, Jenna loved paying homage to the long-running series: “I was freaking out about it and we’re like GLC over here…For that movie, they had the whole family and we have an even bigger family so it was more chaotic and more crazy. It was just so much fun to film.”

Stuck at Christmas premieres Friday, December 8th @ 8PM ET/PT on Disney Channel.

Jenna Ortega Has Jordan Fisher's DWTS Number On Speed Dial (Exclusive)

There’s probably no bigger fan of Jordan Fisher, than Jenna Ortega — especially when it comes to his run on Dancing With the Stars.

JJJ spoke with Jenna last week where she revealed that she actually has his and partner Lindsay Arnold‘s voting number on speed dial!

“He’s incredible. I went to one of his performances a few weeks ago…he killed it!” Jenna told us about going to see him perform on the show. “He’s so incredibly talented and I can’t even describe how sweet he is or how talented he is.”


She continues, “Being there and watching him succeed like this is everything.”

“I’m definitely rooting for him to win that mirror ball trophy. I have their number saved in my phone. I love him and always rooting for him.”

We also had to know if Jenna would ever go out for the show, or even the forthcoming, DWTS Junior and she said YES!

“I would love it! It looks like so much fun.”

Jordan and Lindsay will be performing in the finals TONIGHT!

Jenna Ortega Loves Spending Time With Her Family: 'They Keep My Feet on the Ground'

Jenna Ortega has, at age 15, already had a career most of us could only dream of.

Still, despite the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, she opens up in a new interview about how much she loves spending time with her friends and family and doing regular teenage activities.

“I love that I can home to the Coachella Valley and see my family and friends who have been with me from day one,” Jenna told People. “It’s nice to have them by my side always.”

Her family definitely doesn’t give her special treatment, either: “I get home from the set and they do not forget to tell me that there are dishes in the sink waiting for me. They keep my feet on the ground.”

Jenna also counts swimming, hanging out with friends, sleepovers, and “watching movies with m family” as her favorite hobbies, rather than Hollywood parties or red carpets.

We’re so glad she has such an amazing support system!
