Netflix's New Christmas Movie 'Jingle Jangle' Lands On Friday
The latest film, Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey looks truly magical.
Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker stars as Jeronicus Jangle, an iconic toymaker in the gloriously vibrant town of Cobbleton.
With the help of his whip-smart granddaughter (Madalen Mills) and their magical creations, must track down his apprentice Gustafson (Keegan-Michael Key) after he steals one of his inventions!
The cast also includes some major Hollywood talent from both the music and film and TV industries, including Phylicia Rashad, Anika Noni Rose and Hugh Bonneville and Ricky Martin.
Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey combines two of our favourite things; Christmas, adventures and Christmas music. Yes, the film is actually a musical too and features songs by John Legend, Usher, Ricky Martin and the rest of the cast. Keegan-michael Key's Gustafson also has his own musical number called 'Magic Man G'.
This larger than life festive feature was filmed in Norwich last summer.
According to a local paper, Elm Hill was covered in fake snow while the cobbled streets were magically transformed back to the Victorian era with market stalls.
Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey director David E. Talbert also wrote and directed the 2016 Christmas film Almost Christmas.
