According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mountain Magic Christmas is considered a "modern-day movie musical." In the film, fans will get to see the backstage chaos that ensues while making a TV special.
According to the movie's logline, Parton “finds herself taking a private journey into her past, guided by the mysterious appearances of her personal Three Wise Mountain Men."
The logline continued, “When it’s time for her big special to air, 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.”
Warner Bros. Television is set to produce the film in coalition with Magnolia Hill Productions and Sandollar Productions. David Rambo will be writing the film, as Joe Lazarov joins as director.
Parton is set as the executive producer along with Sam Haskell, Rambo, Lazarov, and Hudson Hickman, while Billy Levin is set to produce the film.
A premiere date has not yet been released for Dolly Parton's Magic Mountain Christmas, but it is likely to air sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas!
