With Christmas fast approaching, Steve Urkel wants everything to be perfect for “the big guy” when he arrives — and no, he’s not talking about Carl Winslow.
Warner Bros. Discovery has released the official trailer for Urkel Saves Santa: The Movie, a new animated project that finds Jaleel White voicing his iconic Family Matters character for the one of the first times since the beloved sitcom ended in 1998.

“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!” reads the movie’s official description. “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. 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 even bigger heart, it’s up to Steve to help the city rediscover the holiday spirit.”
Available to purchase from all major digital platforms on Nov. 21, Urkel Saves Santa also features the voices of Nicole Byer (Nailed It), Roy Wood Jr. (The Daily Show) and Kym Whitley (Young & Hungry).
Urkel Saves Santa was one of six Warner Bros. Animation projects set to premiere on then-HBO Max in August 2022, only to be pulled as the streamer transitioned to just Max. Another casualty, the holiday movie Merry Little Batman, was recently picked up at Prime Video.
