We are here for all types of Christmas movies, and that includes family-centered ones. But there’s a special place in our hearts for the ones where someone has stopped believing in Christmas and must go through an experience that will make them believe in the magic of the season again. What? We want to be made to believe again, as well. Every dang year. In many different ways. That’s part of the joy of Christmas.
Now, this might be a very different way of getting there, but we’re open to the possibilities. We’ll try it! It’s Christmas (well, it’s going to be. soon. or something), after all.
You can check out the trailer below:
Eddie Garrick (Chris “Ludacris” Bridges) is a good-hearted man who has turned his back on Christmas due to a traumatic childhood experience. At the request of his wife Allison Garrick (Teyonah Parris), from whom he is separated, Eddie takes his 9-year-old daughter Charlotte (Madison Skye Validum) out with him on Christmas Eve, where they meet a mysterious man in a red suit named Nick (Lil Rel Howery). Eddie, who is a social worker, thinks the man is delusional and needs professional help, but when he evokes the wrath of a local politician (Oscar Nuñez), he and his daughter are taken on a magical adventure that just might restore his faith in Christmas. “Dashing through the Snow,” which is directed by Tim Story and written by Scott Rosenberg, is produced by John Jacobs and Will Packer, with Tim Story, Johanna Byer, Ross Fanger, and Zac Unterman serving as executive producers. The film also stars Teyonah Parris, Madison Skye Validum, Oscar Nuñez, Ravi V. Patel, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Gina Brillon, Sebastian Sozzi, Kevin Connolly, and Zulay Henao.
