With a new holiday season comes excitement, joy, holiday spirit, but most importantly, new holiday movies. Every year, a few weeks before Thanksgiving, Netflix releases new movies in anticipation of the upcoming holiday season. While all of these movies consist of some cheesy plot line and typically not the best acting, they’re undeniably heartwarming and leave us wanting more. Here are three of the best Netflix original holiday movies out this year.
The Princess Switch
If you’re a fan of Vanessa Hudgens, you’ll love this movie. Stacy, a baker from Chicago, and her baking partner, Kevin, are chosen to take part in a baking competition in Belgravia. While exploring the town, Stacy runs into the Duchess, who could be her twin. At the request of the Duchess, the two secretly switch place to experience life from a very different perspective while simultaneously falling in love with the others beau.
A Christmas Prince
In this Netflix original, a young journalist, Amber, is sent on an undercover project to dig up secrets about a prince who is rumored to be a scandalous socialite. While posing as a tutor, Amber discovers more royal secrets that she could ever expect while also falling in love with the prince. This movie is a must-watch if you’re a fan happy ever after endings.
Christmas Wedding Planner
This Netflix film is refreshingly original. With less of a cheesy plot line and no princes to fall in love with, this movie is for everyone. The main character, Kelsey, is planning her cousin’s Christmas wedding when a private investigator shows up inquiring about the husband-to-be. Worried about her cousins wedding, that she’s worked so hard to plan, Kelsey teams up with the private investigator in hopes of exposing the husband-to-be and save the wedding.
All three of these movies are definitely worth the watch. Over Thanksgiving break be sure to watch one or two to relax and get yourself in the holiday spirit!
