Mark Your Calendars: Netflix Is Releasing Six New Christmas Movies
Hang the stockings, put up your tree, and throw a batch of Christmas cookies in the oven because Netflix is dropping new holiday movies—and they start in less than two weeks. This isn’t the first year Netflix has aired original Christmas movies: In 2017 they produced a feel-good holiday flick titled A Christmas Prince, which became an instant viral hit. A sequel to the film was part of last year’s holiday movie lineup, and since then we’ve been patiently waiting for the third installment of the series. A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby drops on December 5, and we can hardly wait. Luckily, we don’t have to wait as long for the other holiday films: Netflix’s holiday originals begin on November 1, and we have the full schedule.
