In the trailer, we're introduced to the Grinch's reincarnate, Regina Fuller (played Christine Baranski). Following her father's passing, Regina makes plans to sell her small hometown and evicts the residents, setting the deadline for Christmas Eve. But when a determined angel (Parton) pays her a visit, it seems like there might be hope for the townspeople after all.
When Parton's character appears in a sparkly, all-white ensemble, Regina asks, "Who are you?" Parton responds, "An angel." Regina follows up with, "What do you want from me?" And Parton simply replies, "Change!"
Throughout the teaser, Parton's smooth vocals can be heard in the background as she sings "Christmas on the Square," proving that the film's soundtrack will be just as addicting as the film itself.
The musical, which was directed by Debbie Allen and written by Maria S. Schlatter, will include cast members Jenifer Lewis (Margeline), Josh Segarra (Pastor Christian Hathaway), Treat Williams (Carl Pellam), Jeanine Mason (Felicity Sorenson) and Mary Lane Haskell (Jenna Hathaway). It's also set to premiere on Nov. 22—but this isn't the only new project that we can expect to see from Parton.
On Nov. 17, the iconic country star will also be releasing a memoir called Dolly Parton, Songteller: My Life in Lyrics. The book will include never-before-seen photos and memorabilia, personal memories and stories that inspired many of her songs.
Sounds like we'll definitely be having a Holly, Dolly Christmas this year.
