In new family/fantasy Christmas movie Noelle, Santa Claus retires but his son (Bill Hader) gets cold feet about taking over. It therefore falls to his daughter Noelle (Anna Kendrick) to take over the family business.
From writer/director Marc Lawrence; additional key cast members include Shirley McLaine, Billy Eichner and Julie Hagerty.
Watching this trailer just transported me to a place where I’m dressed in elf pyjamas and have a warm cup of coco in my hands.
I’m ready for all the Christmassy goodness plus that special Kendrick humour. Anyone else?
Alison Araya, Lina Renna, Chelah Horsdal, Alvina August, Michael Gross, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Lee Shorten and Diana Maria Riva also star.
Before you get too excited, this new trailer for The Little Mermaid is based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale and not the better known Disney film of the same name. Starring Shirley MacLaine, William Moseley, Gina Gershon, Poppy Drayton and directed by Chris Bouchard and Blake Harris, this story centres around a little girl and her young uncle’s discovery of an enchanting creature they believe to be a real mermaid…
I’m a fan of the disney film and my reason for watching this version would be that I’m curious about the original Hans Christian Andersen story. Call it a hunch but the look and feel of this trailer tells me that I may end up missing the ‘glossy finish’ afforded by a Disney budget. How nice it would be for me to be proved so very, very wrong.
Will you be watching The Little Mermaid? If not you may already know that a live -action version of the Disney film is coming. There’s just no release date yet since they’re still in pre-production. Though, I’m quite sure that it definitely won’t be here in 2017.
