When Sunday morning rolls around and Halloween is officially in the rearview mirror, the focus is going to shift towards Christmas as pumpkins and skeletons get replaced by reindeer and Santas. Every year a wave of new movies are released to capitalize on people’s continued obsession with the festive season, even if very few of them manage to ascend to classic status.
The roster of holiday favorites has largely remained unchanged for decades bar the odd recent addition or two, but Netflix are doubling down on their Christmas content regardless, and the streaming service has a massive amount of seasonal movies and TV shows coming down the pipeline throughout November and December.
Netflix’s Christmas lineup hails from all over the world and includes both animated and live-action titles, while it runs the entire genre spectrum with everyone from Kurt Russell to Dolly Parton getting involved, and you can check out the full and exhaustive list below.

You can spot the titles that are destined to be the most popular from a mile away, with The Christmas Chronicles: Part Two looking the most likely to dominate the Top 10 most-watched list, although musical efforts that involve the legendary Dolly Parton and the incredibly popular John Legend are also poised to draw in millions of eyeballs.
Of course, a lot of people will stick to what they know best and flip on It’s a Wonderful Life, Die Hard, Miracle on 34th Street and Home Alone for the millionth time, but at least Netflix are making a concerted effort to try and broaden the horizons of their subscriber base when it comes to Christmas content.
