Everything you need to know about the country crooner's all-new Christmas movie.
Talk about an early Christmas gift! Dolly Parton is continuing her tradition of heartwarming holiday movies with a new movie coming to NBC in 2022.
In 2021, she partnered with Netflix for Dolly Parton's Christmas on the Square, which featured 14 of her original songs, and in 2019, Hallmark Channel aired Christmas at Dollywood, which filmed on location at the country icon's Gatlinburg, Tenn. theme park.
This year, she's bringing a little joy to the world with an all-new special that marks Parton's first project with NBC since 2015's Coat of Many Colors and the 2016 followup Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love.
Here's what we know so far about Dolly Parton's new Christmas movie for 2022.
What is Dolly Parton's Mountain Magic Christmas about?
The new film, Dolly Parton's Mountain Magic Christmas, is billed as a modern-day Christmas movie musical about the making of a network TV special.
The film is described as "the frenetic backstage story and delightful on-camera results of Dolly’s desire to uplift an exhausted world’s spirits by sharing the unique “mountain magic” she has always found in and around Dollywood at Christmas. Throughout the movie’s production numbers and rehearsal chaos, Dolly finds herself taking a private journey into her past, guided by the mysterious appearances of her personal Three Wise Men. When it’s time for her big special to air live, a renewed and inspired Dolly goes rogue and shows the world that the real magic of Christmas lies in the hearts of the children we all once were, the realization that Christmas is about the people we share it with, and how her faith remains the common thread between Christmases past, present, and future."
