Netflix Is Dropping Six Original Christmas Films If You Need A Hand Getting Jolly
Christmas is a time for seeing friends and family, eating loads of good food and opening presents under the tree.
It's also a time to dig in to some of the best festive movies that have been released over the years.
If you like something action packed then Die Hard is for you. If you're looking for something funny then you can't go past Home Alone. And if you need something in the middle then, of course, everyone's favourite is Love, Actually.
But if you've seen these movies too many times and need something new then Netflix has you covered. The streaming giant is releasing not one, not two, but six goddamn original Christmas-themed movies to get you in the spirit.
To be honest, they all look ridiculous. But it's never about the story, it's about how the story makes you feel, right?
First up is The Knight Before Christmas, which stars Vanessa Hughens as a 'clever and kind science teacher' who helps a medieval knight adjust to the real world after traveling through time.
Yes, you read that right. A knight opens up a portal and winds up in 2019 Ohio and naturally gets freaked out at everything around him. But thankfully Vanessa is there to make everything okay.
Then we have A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby.
Okay, this is already iconic because it mixes people's love for Royal families, their ability to pop out a baby and Christmas. What more could you want?!
It's a sequel to the hilariously bad The Christmas Prince from 2017, which followed an aspiring young American magazine journalist named Amber Moore, who is sent to the foreign nation of Aldovia to cover a press conference given by crown prince Richard. They fall in love and it's all very cute.
But this one features a baby!
We get animated in the third film with Klaus, which stars Jason Schwartzman and Rashida Jones.
It follows Jesper (Schwartzman), who is the postal academy's worst student, and, as a result, he is stationed on a frozen island above the Arctic Circle.
Jesper is about to give up when he finds an ally in local teacher Alva (Jones), and discovers Klaus, a mysterious carpenter who lives alone in a cabin full of handmade toys.
Let It Snow sounds like a fairly generic American Christmas film, which could be right up your alley if you want to sit back, relax, and not have to think.
It's based off the novel Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances by Maureen Johnson, John Green, and Lauren Myracle.
It'll debut on Netflix on November 8.
There's also Holiday Rush which will focus on a radio DJ trying to reconnect with his kids.
This sounds like it's one of those movies that is just based around Christmas rather than specifically about the festive holiday.
That'll hit our screens on November 28.
Then we've got our least Christmasy title on the whole lot but it sure sounds like a wild ride.
Last but not least we have Holiday in the Wild which stars Kristin Davis from Sex and the City and Rob Lowe from Parks and Recreation.
Kristen plays a recent divorcee who travels to Africa to find herself and reconnect with herself.
But then she meets Rob in Zambia, who works at an elephant sanctuary. We're going to assume that love will ensue and our cold Christmas hearts will melt like an ice-cream in the African sun.
So if you're needing to get into the festive spirit, Netflix has you covered.
