Netflix's New Christmas Movie ​'Let It Snow' Is The New 'Love Actually'

Netflix's New Christmas Movie ​'Let It Snow' Is The New 'Love Actually'

We've all been waiting a long time for this day. A day where a film comes along to rival Love Actually and steal our hearts at Christmas...and we think we may have found it in this new Netflix Original, Let It Snow.

The film's trailer has just dropped, and it looks like it's going to be a Love Actually, but aimed at those in their teens and twenties.

Although, let's be honest, we all love easy-watch high-school rom-coms whatever our age - and this one looks seriously heartwarming.

The upcoming release is based on the book, Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances by Maureen Johnson, John Green and Lauren Myracle, and is set to land on the streaming platform on November 8th - just in time for the holiday season.

Directed by Luke Snelin, the movie, which sounds like it'll kick off our festive season, stars Chilling Adventures of Sabrina star Kiernan Shipka, as well as Isabela Merced, Shameik Moore, Odeya Rush (Lady Bird, Dumplin'), Liv Hewson, Mitchell Hope and Jacob Batalon.

We can't promise an epic soundtrack though like in Love Actually unfortunately.

But we just hope it brings us some classic cheesy one-liners like: "If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around". We can't help it, it just makes us well up, OK?

The movie is all about a snowstorm hitting a small town on Christmas Eve, which seems to spark a group of teenager's lives to collide.

There's friendship, there's love, there's even the unrequited kind too - we just hope the guy in the trailer who is secretly in love with his best mate will whack out some placards on Christmas Day, play a Christmas carol and confess his love. It is the only way to fess up - as Mark from Love Actually knows only too well.

Or maybe he'll do it in a more pure way, like young Sam and chase her through the airport to tell her before she flies off for the holidays.

The Netflix synopsis reads: "When a snowstorm hits a small midwestern town on Christmas Eve, a group of high school seniors find their friendships and love lives colliding thanks to a stranded pop star, a stolen keg, a squad of competitive dancers, a mysterious woman covered in tin foil, and an epic party at the local Waffle Town.

"Come Christmas morning, nothing will be the same."

We are so ready for a new Christmas rom-com to obsess over, so thank you Netflix.

We're also so ready to get the sh*t kicked out of us by love.
