Last year when it was confirmed that The Christmas Chronicles will be getting a sequel, the fans of the original movie were overjoyed. Since then, there has been a steady flow of updates regarding the sequel and the audience has been following every single one of them with rapt attention. During this Yuletide season, all of us have a bunch of movies that we add to our list and it looks like The Christmas Chronicles 2 is going to be a part of it. So far, Netflix has released quite a few Christmas movies, but perhaps, the most anticipated one is The Christmas Chronicles 2.
Given the popularity of the first movie, it is already regarded as a Christmas classic. The movie is produced by the man who also produced Home Alone and Harry Potter and received rave reviews upon its release. Starring Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn as Mr. and Mrs. Claus, the real-life couple are coming to our screens once again to recreate the magic we know and love, but this time, Mrs. Claus is going to really shine on screen. Considering the first movie earned around 20 million streaming just during the first week, it is expected that the sequel will be a hit as well. So without any further ado, here is everything you need to know about The Christmas Chronicles 2.
The Christmas Chronicles 2 follows the story of Kate Pierce, who visits Mexico and gets transported to the North Pole, along with the son of her mother's boyfriend, Jack. Upon their arrival, the children learn about the history of Santa's Village and the Christmas Star that protects them. The primary antagonist of the movie is the evil Belsnickel who aims to ruin Christmas for the world, forever. The official synopsis of the movie reads, "Teenager Kate Pierce is reunited with Santa Claus when a troublemaker threatens to cancel Christmas -- forever."
