One of my favourite things about Christmas is the wild movies that Netflix churns out faster than you can say jingle bells.
Tacky, corny, wonderful Christmas movies. They’re a drug to a basic bitch like myself. So obviously, I was completely obsessed with the 2018 Netflix film The Christmas Chronicles.
Kurt Russell as Santa Claus and his hilarious IRL wife Goldie Hawn as Mrs Claus? What more could you possibly want?
Unfortunately, we weren’t lucky enough to be blessed with a sequel this year, but Goldie Hawn has taken to Instagram to announce that The Christmas Chronicles 2 will be hitting Netflix in 2020.
In true Goldie Hawn fashion, she had to get a little Goldie Horn for the announcement, reminding us that she’s still “ringing Santa’s jingle bells.”
First of all, we need to address that Goldie looks young enough to be Kate Hudson’s sister in this photo. Yes, I know that photoshop exists, but DAMN. I would sell my soul to the devil to look this good at 74.
The Christmas Chronicles became an instant hit when it dropped last year, easily ranking among Elf and The Santa Clause as one of the best funny Christmas movies.
From what we can gather, Goldie Hawn’s Mrs Claus will have a more prominent role in the sequel. Considering Goldie and Kurt have been together for more than 35 years, I can’t wait to see their adorable Christmas antics in more detail.
The sequel will be directed by Chris Columbus (Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Home Alone, Mrs Doubtfire), who previously worked as a producer on the original film.
The Christmas Chronicles 2 will feature Santa Claus and Kate Pierce unexpectedly reuniting to save the day after a Belsnickel (you know, that Krampus-looking thing that Dwight Schrute dresses up as in The Office) threatens to ruin Christmas.
Unfortunately we’re going to have to wait until 2020 to watch this glorious sequel. But in the mean time, there’s a plethora of questionable Christmas movies available on Netflix right now for your viewing pleasure.
Or, you know, you could watch The Christmas Chronicles on repeat for the next 12 months. Who am I to tell you what to do? I’m not the Christmas movie police.
