Yes, I know it’s early October and we haven’t even had Halloween yet, but there’s already Christmas stock in the stores, so why don’t we follow suit and start looking ahead to what Netflix has got to offer up this festive season? The streaming service always serves up a lot of great yuletide content for the whole family, and 2020 will be no different. There are over 30 original films, TV series and specials due across the next three months, so let’s see what’s coming down the virtual chimney this year.
The festivities start as early as October 28th with Emma Roberts romcom Holidate. On November 5th, another romcom then arrives in the form of Operation Christmas Drop, starring Kat Graham, which is set and filmed at an Air Force Base in Guam. The 13th, meanwhile, delivers what promises to be enchanting entertainment – Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey, about an eccentric toymaker (Forest Whitaker), his adventurous granddaughter and a magical invention that changes their lives.
