Netlifx has released the trailer for “Christmas on the Square,” a brand-new original movie musical with brand-new songs by Dolly Parton, who also stars in the movie, alongside Mamma Mia’s and Chicago’s Christine Baranski, who plays a female Scrooge-esque town owner, Regina Fuller.
The whole town faces eviction as Regina Fuller attempts to sell the land to a developer, for a mall to be built. All this, until an angel, with an instantly-recognisable country twang, tries to lead Baranski’s character to a change of heart.
The movie musical is directed and choreographed by Tony nominee and Emmy winner Debbie Allen, and the cast also includes Jenifer Lewis (Black-ish, Hairspray), Treat Williams (Hair), Josh Segarra (On Your Feet!), Jeanine Mason (Roswell, New Mexico), Mary Lane Haskell (Heartstrings), Matthew Johnson (American Idol), and Selah Kimbro Jones (Hidden Figures).
Christmas on the Square lands on Netflix on the 22nd November, a month before Netflix releases another musical extravaganza – the Movie Version of The Prom!
