It might not feel like, Christmas is less than 3 months away, with so much of our year decimated, any chance of festive cheer will be a perfect respite. In November Netflix will release Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey and today we get a first look at the upcoming Netflix Original film.
The festive family adventure stars Forest Whitaker as the legendary toymaker Jeronicus Jangle. His creations are loved by all the children, it’s when his trusted apprentice (Keegan-Michael Key). It’s up to Jangle’s granddaughter (Madalen Mills) to re-ignite the magic.
It’s a film hopefully bring a smile to anyone’s face. Whilst Christmas family gatherings might be under threat this year, hopefully these Christmas films old and new fill that void on the big day itself.
Netflix have sent us a number of First Look Images, check them out…
A musical adventure and a visual spectacle for the ages, Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey is a wholly fresh and spirited family holiday event. Set in the gloriously vibrant town of Cobbleton, the film follows legendary toymaker Jeronicus Jangle (Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker) whose fanciful inventions burst with whimsy and wonder. But when his trusted apprentice (Emmy winner Keegan-Michael Key) steals his most prized creation, it’s up to his equally bright and inventive granddaughter (newcomer Madalen Mills) — and a long-forgotten invention — to heal old wounds and reawaken the magic within. From the imagination of writer-director David E. Talbert and featuring original songs by John Legend, Philip Lawrence, Davy Nathan, and “This Day” performed by Usher and Kiana Ledé, Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey reminds us of the strength of family and the power of possibility.
The film also stars Hugh Bonneville, Phylicia Rashad, Anika Noni Rose, Justin Cornell and John Legend who has also written original music for this film.
Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey will be released globally on Netflix from 13th November.
