Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell make an odd couple in this reimagining of — you guessed it — A Christmas Carol. Ferrell is the ghost of Christmas’ gift, but rather than showing Scrooge Reynolds the error of his ways, it’s the present that must revisit his past, present, and future. Expect big musical numbers and cheery beats from this wholesome morsel of Christmas sweets. The film also has a limited release in theaters from November 11.

Also known as A Christmas Story 3, this trilogy comes a decade after the previous flick in the Parker family franchise. It all began in 1983 with the classic holiday comedy A Christmas Story, after Ralph relives his family’s Christmas memories. This follow-up, set 30 years in and taking place in the mid-1970s, sees an adult return to his former home in Indiana, where his mother convinces him to relive a magical old Christmas.

Although it’s not a Christmas movie, Disenchanted is a no-brainer to watch the silly season. She wields the genius idea of ​​turning pure, loving Giselle into an evil stepmother — technically becoming a stepmother in 2007’s Bewitched. This sequel brings back Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden, Idina Menzel, and adds Maya Rudolph.

Universal Pictures

A violent night (now in theaters)

Not all Christmas tales are bloodless. This black comedy film stars David Harbor as the action hero Santa Claus who steps in to save the day when a group of mercenaries attacks the estate of a wealthy family.

Netflix

Yes, it’s another adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, but this one is best known for its star-studded cast, including Jesse Buckley, Olivia Colman, Luke Evans, and Jonathan Pryce. Netflix says it’s a “paranormal, time-traveling musical adaptation.” It’s definitely a good idea for kids.

It’s an animation, it’s aimed at the whole family and it’s amazingly good. Guillermo del Toro rarely disappoints, and his situation with Pinocchio is no exception. More than just a children’s story, del Toro reveals a moving, moving Gothic fantasy story about what it means to be alive. With big deviations from the story we’re all familiar with and memorable new creature creations, including a skeletal rabbit and an ethereal wood goblin, this version of Pinocchio is perfect for Christmas. Warning: you will shed a tear at least once.

If you haven’t watched previous episodes of this comedy gem on Netflix, this might be a good place to start. The semi-improvised show sees celebrities join unqualified Will Arnett Detective Terry Seattle on a murder investigation — but these guests haven’t seen the script. It is up to them to track down the evidence and eventually name the killer. Jason Bateman and Maya Rudolph are along for the ride in their Christmas special – a sweet gift for the holiday.

How about a Christmas TV show fittingly closer to the North? This Norwegian limited series follows a group of people stranded at Oslo Airport, with a countdown to Christmas. Will they arrive in time? Will they make unexpected friends in this difficult time? Don’t answer these rhetorical questions, just watch the six episodes.

Disney

Strange World (December 23 on Disney Plus)

This rare, pure sci-fi adventure from Disney hits Disney Plus just in time for Christmas. Strange World follows a family of explorers who travel to a world overrun with monsters. There, they investigate why the plant is dying, while also nixing some family differences on the way.

Netflix’s Christmas Day isn’t a Christmas show, but it has everything you could ask for from a Christmas movie. The musical Matilda by Roald Dahl is based on the hit musical by Tim Minchin. Fill your living room with the tunes of Sparrow and the classic tale of a young girl (Alisha Weir) using her magical imagination to outwit the evil headmistress (Emma Thompson). The flick will also have a limited run in theaters from December 9th.
