'Noelle' Is Going To Be Your New Favourite Christmas Movie
'Tis the season to be jolly... and sit in, watching relentless amounts of Christmas TV while feasting on probably too much chocolate.
And if you're looking for something festive to add to your must-watch list then perhaps Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader's new holiday comedy Noelle will fit the bill.
The feel-good flick was released on Tuesday, 12th November on the newly launched streaming service Disney+ and sounds an awful lot like a mash-up between Elf and Arthur Christmas.
The Pitch Perfect star plays the titular Noelle, daughter of Santa and sister of Nick (Bill), who would rather teach yoga classes in Phoenix then take up the role of Santa Claus after their father dies.
So it's up to Noelle and her trusty nanny elf to track him down and save Christmas before it's too late.
The film's official synopsis on Disney+'s website reads: "Noelle, Kris Kringle's daughter is full of Christmas spirit and holiday fun, but wishes she could do something 'important' like her beloved brother Nick, who will take over from their father this Christmas.
"When Nick is about to crumble like a gingerbread cookie from all the pressure, Noelle suggests he take a break and get away...but when he doesn't return, Noelle must find her brother and bring him back in time to save Christmas."
The film also stars American Horror Story's Billy Eichner as the Kringle's tech-obsessed cousin Gabe and screen icon Shirley MacLaine portraying Elf Polly.
Unfortunately, British and Irish cinema-goers will be unable to watch the flick before the Holidays as the streaming service won't land on our shores until March 2020. Although an official date is yet to be released.
The shiny new service, pegged as a rival to the likes of Netflix, Hayu and SkyGo, launched as a trial exclusively in the Netherlands on 12th September 2019.
Disney+ launched in the United States and Canada on 12th November, and is set to begin streaming in Australia and New Zealand on 19th November.
Disney+ will cost $6.99 per month (£5.60), but there's no word on if prices will match up when for UK customers next year.
