Scrooge: A Christmas Carol, Netflix

New to Netflix for Christmas 2022, Charles Dickens' ageless legend is reborn in this supernatural, time-travelling musical adaptation of the definitive Christmas story. With his soul on the line, Scrooge has just one Christmas Eve left to face his past and build a better future. Featuring re-imagined songs from the legendary, two-time Oscar winner Leslie Bricusse, Scrooge: A Christmas Carol is one for a new generation to sing.

Klaus, Netflix

This Oscar winner is one of those rare joys: a film that adults enjoy just as much as the kids. When Jesper (Jason Schwartzman) distinguishes himself as the Postal Academy’s worst student, he is stationed on a frozen island above the Arctic Circle, where the feuding locals hardly exchange words, let alone letters. Jesper is about to give up when he finds an ally in local teacher Alva (Rashida Jones) and discovers Klaus (Oscar winner J.K. Simmons), a mysterious carpenter who lives alone in a cabin full of handmade toys. These unlikely friendships return laughter to Smeerensburg, forging a new legacy of generous neighbours, magical lore and stockings hung by the chimney with care.

Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey, Netflix

A musical adventure, Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey is a fresh and spirited family film with an A-list cast. Set in the vibrant town of Cobbleton, the film follows legendary toymaker Jeronicus Jangle (Oscar winner Forest Whitaker) whose inventions burst with wonder. But when his trusted apprentice (Emmy winner Keegan-Michael Key) steals his most prized creation, it’s up to his bright and inventive granddaughter – and a long-forgotten invention – to heal old wounds and reawaken the magic within.
