Are you ready for Candy Cane Lane?
According to the official synopsis, Chris (Eddie Murphy) inadvertently makes a deal with a mischievous elf named Pepper (Jillian Bell) who casts a magic spell that brings the 12 Days of Christmas to life and wreaks havoc on the whole town.
“At the risk of ruining the holidays for his family, Chris, his wife Carol (Tracee Ellis Ross), and their three children must race against the clock to break Pepper’s spell, battle deviously magical characters, and save Christmas for everyone.”
“[Chris] loves Christmas so much he’s even given all his kids Christmas-themed names (Holly, Joy and Nick),” said director Reginald Hudlin in an interview with PEOPLE.
When Chris is unexpectedly laid off, he throws himself into winning the Candy Cane Lane house-decorating contest in his neighborhood, which has a huge cash prize.
But when he finds the coolest-looking Christmas decorations ever that will pretty much guarantee him winning the big prize, it turns out they are cursed by a wayward elf named Pepper [Jillian Bell].
“Now the ’12 Days of Christmas’ characters are coming to life and causing chaos for Chris and his family. Now instead of winning it all, he could lose it all!”
