It’s never too early for Christmas flicks – or at least that’s what Netflix thinks as the streamer has just released a trailer for Lucifer star Aimee Garcia’s new festive movie.
Titled Christmas with You, this holiday romcom sees Garcia playing pop star Angelina. Having a career burnout and wanting to connect more with her fans, the singer thinks she should lean more into the Christmas spirit.
After spotting a young fan (Deja Monique Cruz) beautifully covering one of her songs hoping to meet her, Angelina decides to grant her wish. Off to a small town right before Christmas, the singer will get to know her gifted fan, her single dad (played by Freddie Prinze Jr) and their extended family.
The cast is rounded out by Zenzi Williams in the role of Angelina’s assistant Monique, with Inventing Anna’s Gabriel Sloyer and The Watcher’s Grace Dumdaw also starring.
Garcia is best known for the role of Ella Lopez in Lucifer, but she’s also voiced Alex Gonzalez in DreamWorks Dragons: The Nine Realms, a series set in the same universe as the How To Train Your Dragon movies.
Premiering next month, Christmas with You is part of Netflix’s upcoming cheerful catalogue, which also includes the hotly-anticipated acting comeback of Mean Girls star Lindsay Lohan.
Falling for Christmas sees Lohan play spoiled, newly-engaged hotel heiress Sierra Belmont who suffers a skiing accident and wakes up with amnesia. In the care of a lodge owner and his daughter in the lead-up to Christmas, the protagonist has an epiphany on her life.
Christmas with You and Falling for Christmas will become available to stream on Netflix in November.
