Netflix Christmas Movies: Complete List of Movies Coming in November and December
Netflix has announced a slew of new movies hitting screens this year – and one of them is very close to home.
The streaming service announced dozens of films on social media tonight, including a highly anticipated third installment of their popular Christmas original, The Princess Switch, which saw Vanessa Hudgens travel to Edinburgh last year to film several scenes.
But that’s not the only showing with links to Scotland. The streaming giant has announced another original based in the country.
“A Castle for Christmas” promises romance in a festive tale about an American author who wants to buy a castle in Scotland, but faces opposition from the owner of the property.
The romantic comedy, directed by Mary Lambert, stars American actress and model Brooke Shields as the protagonist Sophie and English actor Carys Ewes, who plays a Scottish Duke named Myles.
