As soon as Halloween is over, we will be inundated with all sorts of cheesy holiday goodness. Of course, Hallmark has staked their claim with their holiday films, but they might want to make some room for Netflix, who will be releasing their own set of holiday films.
The streaming giant has released the first trailer for Let It Snow starring Isabela Merced, Shameik Moore, Odeya Rush, Liv Hewson, Mitchell Hope, Kiernan Shipka, Jacob Batalon, and Joan Cusack. Based on the YA novel, the film will see a group find their friendships and love lives colliding thanks to a series of events. And come Christmas morning their lives will not be the same. Check out the trailer below.
Let It Snow plays a lot like Love Actually, where different characters’ stories intersect with each other before culminating in a finale. It may be a little cheesy and formulaic but with a great cast behind it, it should work. And in this case, it looks like it does.
The film sees Merced (Dora and the Lost City of Gold), who previously went by the name Isabela Moner, learning From Moore (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse) that life isn’t as cynical as she makes it out to be. Shipka’s (Sabrina the Teenage Witch) character appears to be in a love triangle, while Hewson (Santa Clarita Diet) is trying to find the courage to say how she feels to her childhood crush. Meanwhile, Batalon (Spider-Man: Far From Home) plays the coolest person in town who doesn’t mind not being in a relationship or searching for that one person.
Here’s the official plot synopsis:
When a snowstorm hits a small midwestern town on Christmas Eve, a group of high school seniors find their friendships and love lives colliding thanks to a stranded pop star, a stolen keg, a squad of competitive dancers, a mysterious woman covered in tin foil, and an epic party at the local Waffle Town. Come Christmas morning, nothing will be the same.
Based on the best-selling book by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle, LET IT SNOW stars Isabela Merced, Shameik Moore, Odeya Rush, Liv Hewson, Mitchell Hope, Kiernan Shipka, Jacob Batalon, and Joan Cusack.
Let It Snow is written by Victoria Strouse and Kay Cannon and directed by Luke Snellin, and will be released exclusively on Netflix on November 8, 2019.
