It might only be July, but given the last few months we've had, we see no issue at all in getting excited about Christmas.
And neither do Netflix, it seems, seeing as the streaming platform is already working on a brand new festive film starring Downton Abbey's Hugh Bonneville.
Named Jingle Jangle, the movie will take the form of a live-action musical, and will centre around a toy maker who creates a magical invention.
Hugh (who plays Delcroix) stars alongside Forest Whitaker in the holiday movie, while Keegan-Michael Key (Key and Peele), Phylicia Rashad (A Raisin in the Sun), Tony winner Anika Noni Rose (Caroline, or Change), and newbie Madalen Mills also appear.
Produced by John Legend's Get Lifted Film Co, the movie is set in an imaginary "cobblestone world come to life", where toy maker Jeronicus Jangle (Whitaker) resides.
Jangle's inventions are known far and wide, but when a former protege (Key) leaves the inventor down on his luck, granddaughter Journey (Mills) jumps in to pick up his spirits.
Teaming together, the pair begin working on a new magical creation, which has the powers to change their lives forever.
But will they succeed? And is it really the answer to their prayers after all?!
The film is currently in post-production, and will be released on Netflix in time for the holidays.
And it's got an all-star team behind it, with Mike Jackson (La La Land), David E. Talbert (Almost Christmas), Lyn Sisson-Talbert (Almost Christmas) John Legend, Kristin Burr (Christopher Robin), and David McIlvain (First Sunday) producing the movie.
Ty Stiklorius (All Rise) and Vicki Dee Rock (Life) will also act as executive producers on the project.
This sounds like a Christmas dream come true.
If you can't wait until winter for a festive movie, Netflix has another treat in store.
Because, hey, we all deserve some festive cheer right now... don't we?
