Okay listen … I watched The Christmas Chronicles last year on Netflix and it’s currently one of my fave Christmas movies! So when they announced we were getting a sequel a few days after the first film premiered I was super excited! But I just watched the trailer for The Christmas Chronicles 2 and I’m not happy!
I’m honestly a bit sad and disappointed. I’m not too sure why but this sequel feels like SUCH a different spin from the original and I’m not sure if I’m gonna enjoy it as much as the first! *sigh* I’m still gonna fudging watch it though! My daughter is dying to see this since she loved the first one. But I’m just not sure I’m gonna like it considering how different it feels.
The first movie felt fun and enjoyable! There was the reindeer chase, meeting the elves for the first time and of course flying for the first time, and it all felt so Christmasy! The first film was silly, hilarious and super cute! But this new trailer feels a lot darker? I had to rewatch the first trailer just to make sure I wasn’t tripping!
WTF happened to the big loveable movie we watched last year? The movie that made me feel so darn good inside! How did we go from “joy to the world” to “DESTROY”!
Like who the hell is this kid and why does he wanna ruin Christmas so damn bad? Hopefully it’s just the trailer that I hate, and I end up loving the movie because right now I’m not so happy about this. I’m super confused on where this new story is going compared to the first.
Which sucks because I just wrote about how happy The Princess Switch 2 trailer makes me feel! The Princess Switch and The Christmas Chronicles were my absolute faves last year! Now I’m starting to feel like they shoulda just left this one alone!
But maybe it’s just me.
Check out The Christmas Chronicles 2 trailer below and you tell me what you think. (Am I tripping?)
Here’s what The Christmas Chronicles 2 will be about …
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.
