You might be sad the spooky season is over, but it seems like Netflix is already prepared for the holidays with a lineup of seemingly beautiful films hitting their platform in these coming months. Here are the four holiday movies coming to Netflix that we know the most about so far.
1. “Falling for Christmas”
Lindsay Lohan is making her comeback as the star of this 2022 Christmas movie, and so far, it has been highly anticipated as a potential favorite for this holiday season. Newly engaged Sierra Belmont (Lohan) wakes up in a small town with amnesia and no memory of her prestigious, high-end life after a terrifying skiing accident. She is left in the hands of a cabin owner named Jake (Chord Overstreet) and his daughter (Olivia Perez), and even though that’s all we know so far, you can probably infer what’ll happen based on the film’s title. You can watch the trailer here.
“Falling for Christmas” will be available for streaming on Netflix on Nov. 10.
2. “Christmas with You”
Angelina (Aimee Garcia) is a well-known pop star that goes on a trip to a tiny town in New York to visit a super-fan of hers, Christina (Deja Monique Cruz) for her quinceañera. After getting snowed in and forced to take shelter at Christina’s house, she rediscovers her love for the holidays and agrees to write a Christmas song after being pestered by her record label with the help of Cristina and her father (Freddie Prinze Jr.). It’s very obvious that this movie follows the evolution of unconventional love through a beautiful tribute to Latinx celebration and heritage. You can watch the trailer here.
“Christmas with You” will be available for streaming on Netflix on Nov. 17.
3. “The Noel Diary”
Jake Turner (Justin Hartley) starts off in a depressing state during the holiday season due to the recent passing of his mother. But as he goes back home to sift through her belongings, he discovers a diary leading him to insights into his own past but also the past of a woman named Rachel (Barrett Doss). Together, they unfold their unknown histories on a heartwarming journey. No trailer has been released yet.
“The Noel Diary” will be available to stream on Netflix on Nov. 24.
4. “Scrooge: A Christmas Carol”
This is a classic that has been remade over the years dating all the way back to the 1900s. “Scrooge: A Christmas Carol” is another animated version of “A Christmas Carol,” but from the descriptions, it seems like there are a few new and intriguing twists. The trailer and synopsis show this is a supernatural and musical take on the Charles Dickens classic with characters voiced by well-known actors like Luke Evans, Jessie Buckley and Olivia Colman. You can watch the trailer here.
“Scrooge: A Christmas Carol” will be available to stream on Netflix on Dec. 2.
From the trailers of these films, it’s hard to pick a favorite (although Lindsay Lohan’s return will be iconic). We hope these brief descriptions we’ve gathered thus far from the trailers and Netflix’s official descriptions have made you excited for what’s to come this holiday season!
