One of the most surprisingly fun Christmas movies to drop in the last couple of years was The Christmas Chronicles starring Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn. Today Neftlix has dropped a new trailer for the sequel, The Christmas Chronicles 2, and it sets up an action-packed, follow-up to the film that could make this one of the strongest holiday franchises since The Santa Clause.
This time around, Santa and some kids must team up to save Christmas from Belsnickel after he steals the Christmas Star and puts the holiday at risk forever. The Christmas Chronicles 2 drops on Netflix November 25th.
It’s been two years since siblings Kate (Darby Camp) and Teddy Pierce (Judah Lewis) saved Christmas, and a lot has changed. Kate, now a cynical teenager, is reluctantly spending Christmas in Cancun with her mom’s new boyfriend and his son Jack (Jahzir Bruno). Unwilling to accept this new version of her family, Kate decides to run away. But when a mysterious, magical troublemaker named Belsnickel threatens to destroy the North Pole and end Christmas for good, Kate and Jack are unexpectedly pulled into a new adventure with Santa Claus (Kurt Russell). Written and directed by Chris Columbus (Home Alone, Harry Potter) and co-starring Goldie Hawn, THE CHRISTMAS CHRONICLES 2 is an action-packed adventure for the whole family that’s full of heart, humor, and holiday spirit.
