The Christmas Chronicles was one of my absolute favorite new movies when it came to Netflix 2 years ago. Christmas is unarguably the best holiday and I love all Christmas movies. Even RJ (who was only 4 at the time) fell in love with the movie. We continue to watch the first movie on repeat (and of course more once the holidays roll around). So I was HYPE when I realized that Netflix added part 2 to it’s slate of holiday movies being released this year. The official trailer for The Christmas Chronicles 2 was released earlier this week and well.. take a look.

My Thoughts After Watching the Trailer
I’m not 100% sure how I am going to feel about Tyrese being mom’s new boyfriend, I have a super hard time taking him seriously. But I do love that they are adding some diversity to the cast. I do however absolutely love this story line. And I am confident that the boys are going to get a kick out of it. I do think that I am going to have to watch this one without them first. It looks like it could be a tad “darker” than the original, though Belsnickel looks like he is going to be a great Christmas villain. And I am loving that we’re obviously going to get another Kurt Russel movie moment.
About The Christmas Chronicles 2
It’s been two years since siblings Kate (Darby Camp) and Teddy Pierce (Judah Lewis) saved Christmas, and a lot has changed. Kate, now a cynical teenager, is reluctantly spending Christmas in Cancun with her mom’s new boyfriend (Tyrese Gibson) and his son Jack (Jahzir Bruno). Unwilling to accept this new version of her family, Kate decides to run away. But when a mysterious, magical troublemaker named Belsnickel threatens to destroy the North Pole and end Christmas for good, Kate and Jack are unexpectedly pulled into a new adventure with Santa Claus (Kurt Russell). Written and directed by Chris Columbus (Home Alone, Harry Potter) and co-starring Goldie Hawn, THE CHRISTMAS CHRONICLES: PART TWO is an action-packed adventure for the whole family that’s full of heart, humor, and holiday spirit.
