There is always something special in the air when the Holiday season starts and Christmas is around the corner. As winter sets, take some well-deserved time off to watch one of these new Christmas movies under a warm blanket. Here you’ll find what to expect from a great Christmas flick - warmth, fun, romance, and magical spirits. Ho! Ho! Ho! Let’s go…
We all know and love the classic story of Pinocchio. Guillermo Del Toro offers a great new version of this tale perfect in time for Christmas. Starring Ewan McGregor and David Bradley, the story follows the wooden marionette who is magically brought to life in order to mend the heart of a grieving woodcarver named Geppetto. In short, a mature children’s film with a great message on what it takes to be a good person. Definitely a movie worth watching.
This is another adaptation of Charles Dickens' cult classic which proves to be as Christmas-y as Christmas itself. There have been many variations of Scrooge, but this animated musical offers something new, mixing supernatural elements and time travel in a marvellous way. If you don’t know the story, Scrooge wants nothing to do with Christmas but when the spirits and magic of the Holiday season enter, it might be enough to turn him. What’s better than enjoying a classic story during Christmas?
Christmas as a child is a spectacular and magical time. In this movie, we follow Ralphie when he returns to his childhood home to give his kids a Christmas they’ll never forget, like the ones he had when he was a kid. As a sequel to “A Christmas Story” (1983), this movie might be a new classic in the making. It’s nostalgic, festive, and charming, just like Christmas. A great movie to watch with the family.
The Holiday season could also be dubbed as the season of rom-coms, and this new movie offers everything you’d want from a fun and romantic Christmas movie. The story follows Gail, an ambitious singer- and songwriter who competes for a once-in-a-lifetime shot at the big stage. On her cross-country travels to reach the iHeartRadio Christmas Eve performance, her budget and her hopes are stalled. In short, lots of fun songs, great performances, and wicked Christmas adventures.
Of course, we had to include a mysterious Christmas tale on this list. Just a few days before Christmas, Santa’s magical jingle bells that have brought peace and prosperity to a small town have mysteriously been lost. It is up to a group of kids to solve the case and hopefully restore the Christmas magic before it's too late. This is a sweet and charming movie perfect for watching with your kids come Christmas.
