Get ready to go on a magical musical journey this Christmas with Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey.
The new Netflix movie is truly a visual spectacle full of beautiful sets, costumes and epic music and dance numbers. The movie is set in the gloriously vibrant town of Cobbleton and follows legendary toymaker Jeronicus Jangle (Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker) whose fanciful inventions burst with whimsy and wonder. But when his trusted apprentice (Emmy winner Keegan-Michael Key) steals his most prized creation, it’s up to his equally bright and inventive granddaughter (newcomer Madalen Mills) — and a long-forgotten invention — to heal old wounds and reawaken the magic within. From the imagination of writer-director David E. Talbert, Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey reminds us of the strength of family and the power of possibility.
The breakout star of the film is newcomer Madalen Mills who is best known for starring in School of Rock on Broadway. She holds her own with the legends featured in this movie and we cannot wait to see what she stars in next. We had the chance to chat with Madalen about how she got cast in the movie and she also shared some of her favorite behind the scenes moments. Check out the full interview above.
Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey is on Netflix November 13, 2020.
