netflix christmas movies 2020

Okay okay, I know it’s only October, please forgive me for this shit! Normally I would NEVER post about Christmas this early!

Personally, I HATE when people skip over holidays, and I believe that every holiday should get its own month. Deadass!!

It grinds my gears when I see stores hang up holiday decorations and we ain’t even smelled the Halloween candy yet, let alone given it out!

But this year? We’re throwing that all out the window because Netflix released their new Christmas movies schedule for the rest of 2020 and I am EXCITED!!

I don’t think I’ve EVER been this excited about Christmas BEFORE Dec 1st EVER!

Last year I watched a few Netflix Christmas movies and absolutely loved them!!! So I’m super excited to see what Netflix releases this year. I’m a tad sad that The Holiday Calendar isn’t getting a sequel, but it’s fine cause I’ll just watch it again, along with Holiday Rush!

But without further ado, here’s a sneak peek of some of the Christmas movies coming to Netflix starting as early as October!

Yes October! (They ain’t even waiting for Halloween to be OVER! See what I mean? Gah damn!) Oh well! This year I don’t care! Thanksgiving is cancelled, and honestly so is Halloween, so we’re just gonna skip right on over to Christmas! With that said …

Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey (Available November 13)

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.

Holidate (Available October 28)

Sloane (Emma Roberts) and Jackson (Luke Bracey) hate the holidays. They constantly find themselves single, sitting at the kids table, or stuck with awkward dates.

But when these two strangers meet one particularly bad Christmas, they make a pact to be each other’s “holidate” for every festive occasion throughout the next year.

With a mutual disdain for the holidays, and assuring themselves that they have no romantic interest in the other, they make the perfect team. However, as a year of absurd celebrations come to an end, Sloane and Jackson find that sharing everything they hate may just prove to be something they unexpectedly love.

Operation Christmas Drop (Available November 5)

Chasing a promotion, congressional aide Erica Miller forgoes family Christmas to travel across the Pacific at her boss’s behest.

Upon landing at a beachside Air Force base, she clashes with her guide, Captain Andrew Jantz, who knows her assignment is finding reasons to defund the facility.

The pilot’s pet project – Operation: Christmas Drop, a genuine, decades-old tradition where gifts and supplies are parachuted to residents of remote neighboring islands – has lawmakers wondering if his unit has too much spare energy. Despite their initial opposing goals, Erica softens once she  experiences the customs and communal spirit of Andrew’s adopted home.

The Princess Switch: Switched Again (Available November 19)

When Duchess Margaret unexpectedly inherits the throne to Montenaro and hits a rough patch with boyfriend Kevin, it’s up to her double Princess Stacy of Belgravia to get these star-crossed lovers back together.

But the course of true love is complicated by the appearance of a handsome royal who’s intent on stealing Margaret’s heart. Throw in the unexpected arrival of Margaret’s outrageous party girl cousin Fiona, a third look-alike who has ambitions of her own, and you have the recipe for Christmas triple trouble!

P.s – Vanessa Hudgens set to return to star in The Princess Switch 3, production begins in Scotland later this year for a holiday 2021 release!

The Christmas Chronicles: Part Two (Available November 25)

It’s been two years since siblings Kate (Darby Camp) and Teddy Pierce (Judah Lewis) saved Christmas, and a lot has changed. Kate, now a cynical teenager, is reluctantly spending Christmas in Cancun with her mom’s new boyfriend and his son Jack (Jahzir Bruno).

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 (Kurt Russell).

Written and directed by Chris Columbus (Home Alone, Harry Potter) and co-starring Goldie Hawn, THE CHRISTMAS CHRONICLES 2 is an action-packed adventure for the whole family that’s full of heart, humor, and holiday spirit.
