Broadcasting starts next month so we can start our festivities even earlier than Tesco stores!
Yep, and Sony’s new channel will show classic, Christmas faves like Home Alone, The Holiday, Christmas with The Kranks (personal fave of mine), along with loads more.
Obviously, they’ve got to fill 24 hours a day up with something…
It will also show never before seen Christmas films like Silver Bells and Holiday Road Trip.
AND it will also have themed weekends such as ‘Santa Sunday,’ ‘Christmas Comedy,’ ‘Bah Humbug’ and ‘Christmas Animals,’ just to name a few.
I can picture the nation all snuggled up in our onesies and blankets with a nice hot chocolate, binging all these Christmas goldies now.
Last year we had the True Christmas channel to binge watch, but now Sony is going to feed our Christmas film addictions with a channel of its own (available to watch 24/7 on: Freeview – 50, Sky – 319, Virgin 424 and Freesat – 303).
Also, every night at 7pm, they will be showing an emotional film *GULPS* so have your tissues at the ready because I guarantee you’ll need them after watching the likes of The Christmas Shoes, Christmas Grace and All I Want Is Christmas. Perfect for a cosy night in though, right?
Onto a happier note, there’s also been news that the Disney + conference revealed there will be a Home Alone reboot.
Bit of a controversial one because whilst a lot are happy with the new look on the Christmas classic, most were begging to leave Kevin McCallister’s legacy alone.
Another bit of good news regarding the world of Christmas films comes from the new, festive rom-com we will have this year, Last Christmas.
The film stars the Mother of Dragons herself, Emilia Clarke, who will be playing Kate, a lover of George Michael’s music, which is a common theme throughout the soundtrack to the new movie.
The film will also feature one of our national treasures Emma Thompson, who will play Kate’s mother, along with Crazy Rich Asians’ Henry Golding who will play Kate’s love interest.
Hell of a cast in this one and I for one cannot wait to see it!
Last Christmas starring Emilia Clarke is set to premiere on November 15th.
Let the festivities BEGIN!!!
