Holidate - October 28th

Who's in it? Emma Roberts, Luke Bracey, Kristin Chenoweth, Jessica Capshaw

What's it about? The film follows Sloane (Roberts) and Jackson (Bracey) who make a deal to become each other's platonic date for every holiday that pops up throughout the year in order to avoid judgment from their families. Easter, 4th of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and the dreaded New Years... And of course, they end up catching feelings along the way.

Who's in it? Forest Whitaker, Keegan-Michael Key, Anika Noni Rose, Phylicia Rashad, Hugh Bonneville, Madalen Mills

What's it about? Jingle Jangle is "a musical adventure and a visual spectacle for the ages." Set in the gloriously vibrant town of Cobbleton, the film follows legendary toymaker Jeronicus Jangle whose fanciful inventions burst with whimsy and wonder. But when his trusted apprentice steals his most prized creation, it’s up to his equally bright and inventive granddaughter to heal old wounds and reawaken the magic within.

Christmas On The Square - November 22nd

Who's in it? Dolly Parton, Christine Baranski, Jenifer Lewis, Treat Williams, Jeanine Mason

What's it about? 2020 may have been a complete shit show but Dolly Parton blessing us with a Christmas musical starring herself, Jenifer Lewis AND Christine Baranski? A gift from the Gods. Christmas On The Square follows Regina Fuller (Baranski), a wealthy and unpleasant woman, who "returns to her small hometown in the wake of her father’s death to evict everyone right before the holiday season. Following an encounter with an angel (Parton), a rekindling of an old romance and stories from the local community, she has a change of heart.”

The Christmas Chronicles: Part Two - November 25th

Who's in it? Kurt Russell, Goldie Hawn, Darby Camp, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Judah Lewis

What's it about? The sequel will follow on from the 2018 film, and will revisit Kate and Teddy Pierce two years later. "Kate, now a cynical teenager, is reluctantly spending Christmas in Cancun with her mom's new boyfriend and his son Jack. Unwilling to accept this new version of her family, Kate decides to run away. But when a mysterious, magical troublemaker named Belsnickel threatens to destroy the North Pole and end Christmas for good, Kate and Jack are unexpectedly pulled into a new adventure with Santa Claus."

The Princess Switch 2: Switched Again - Late 2020

Who's in it? Vanessa Hudgens, Nick Sagar

What's it about? The synopsis of the film is still under wraps at the moment but back in 2019, Netflix revealed that the sequel would see Duchess Margaret unexpectedly inherit the throne and hit a rough patch with Kevin. It then falls to Stacy to save the day before a new lookalike — party girl Fiona — foils their plans. (Yes, Vanessa Hudgens will be playing THREE characters this time around.)
