Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey musical Netflix release date, cast and first trailer

Netflix will release brand new Christmas musical Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey this year.

A musical adventure and a visual spectacle for the ages, Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey is a wholly fresh and spirited family holiday event.

It will feature original songs from John Legend.

The release date for the movie has been confirmed for November 13, 2020.

The cast will feature Forest Whitaker, Keegan-Michael Key, Phylicia Rashad, Sharon Rose and Anika Noni Rose.

They’re joined by Madalen Mills, Kieron Dyer, Justin Cornwell, Lisa Davina Phillip and Hugh Bonneville.

A teaser for the movie from Netflix reveals: “Set in the gloriously vibrant town of Cobbleton, the film follows legendary toymaker Jeronicus Jangle (Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker) whose fanciful inventions burst with whimsy and wonder.

“But when his trusted apprentice (Emmy winner Keegan-Michael Key) steals his most prized creation, it’s up to his equally bright and inventive granddaughter (newcomer Madalen Mills) — and a long-forgotten invention — to heal old wounds and reawaken the magic within.

“From the imagination of writer-director David E. Talbert and featuring original songs by John Legend, Philip Lawrence, and Davy Nathan, Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey reminds us of the strength of family and the power of possibility.”
