Spoiler-Free Review of Disney’s ‘Noelle‘ on Disney+. Get ready to enjoy a holly, jolly Christmas movie!
Disney’s Noelle, is the perfectly balanced holiday film. Filled with zany one liners, Christmas references sprinkled into every day conversation, and a twist on how the whole “Santa” thing works, Noelle is bound to become a streaming tradition for those who enjoy fun-loving Christmas themed adventure.
“In Disney+’s holiday comedy “Noelle,” Kris Kringle’s daughter is full of Christmas spirit and holiday fun, but wishes she could do something “important” like her beloved brother Nick, who will take over for their father this Christmas. When Nick is about to crumble like a gingerbread cookie from all the pressure, Noelle suggests he take a break and get away…but when he doesn’t return, Noelle must find her brother and bring him back in time to save Christmas. The sudden disappearance of the new Santa (Bill Hader) leads to chaos in the North Pole, so Mrs. Claus (Julie Hagerty) must step up to rein in the hi-tech replacement Santa, Cousin Gabe (Billy Eichner). Meanwhile, Noelle and Elf Polly (Shirley MacLaine), the family’s acerbic but good-hearted nanny, are down South on a search-and-recover mission, during which Noelle (Anna Kendrick) comes to realize she has much in common with her father and begins to understand the true meaning of Christmas.”
Anna Kendrick portrays Noelle Kringle, who finds purpose in life by helping her big brother, Nick, prepare to one day take on the mantle of Santa Claus from their father. Through a series of mishaps and misunderstanding, Noelle must save Christmas and fix her mistakes. She meets some diverse new friends along the way and helps to spread Christmas Cheer while learning more about the world outside of The North Pole, and even more about herself. The movie is lighthearted and funny for all ages. Parents will be entertained by the jokes, kids will love the holiday cheer through out the film, and everyone can enjoy this heartfelt story about the importance of family, friendship, and discovering your purpose.
Just hours before Disney+ launches on November 12, Anna Kendrick and the cast and filmmakers of the original holiday comedy “Noelle” attended a festive Yuletide screening at the SVA Theatre on November 11th. The film will stream exclusively on Disney+ and is a real holiday treat.
Written and directed by Marc Lawrence, “Noelle” stars Anna Kendrick, Bill Hader, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Billy Eichner, Julie Hagerty and Shirley MacLaine. The film is produced by Suzanne Todd, p.g.a. with John G. Scotti serving as executive producer.
