"Awfully bold of Netflix to assume that the world will still exist to enjoy it in December 2020".

On Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen: Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell are hopping back in their sleigh for another fun-filled Christmas movie. "Next year, the more the merrier". The streaming platform released a first-look image of the happy holiday couple in the sequel, which is being developed for a 2020 holiday release.

Everyone's excited that "The Christmas Chronicles 2" has been announced, but now the hard part is waiting until next year before we can experience another round of magic! And while that might be a letdown for a few, the fantastic thing is this time around, veteran Christmas film director Chris Columbus (Home Alone 1&2), will soon be taking on directorial duties. Columbus also wrote the script with Matt Lieberman, who penned the screenplay for the first one. The movie follows a widow, Claire, (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) and her two children (Judah Lewis and Darby Camp) as they attempt to celebrate the holidays following Claire's husband Doug's death. \This brand new film's plot sees the Pierce kids older and more adult, with the optimistic Kate now a teenager.

R. Kelly faces new bribery charge in Brooklyn criminal case
Before the new report on the identity of Jane Doe, Kelly's defense attorney, Steve Greenberg, called the indictment "ridiculous". The embattled R&B singer has already been charged with racketeering, kidnapping, forced labor and sexual exploitation in NY .


This time around, Christmas itself is in danger thanks to a mysterious magical troublemaker named Belsnickel, who threatens to destroy Christmas forever.

The first movie introduced audiences to siblings Kate and Teddy Pierce, who make a plan to capture Santa Claus after their father dies and they are demystified by Christmas. The bizarrely-titled The Christmas Chronicles (why is it a chronicle if it's one movie?) will finally live up to its name by giving us a sequel with Russell and Hawn both set to return.
