As you wish: Netflix has dropped the trailer for its upcoming holiday romance movie “A Castle for Christmas,” starring Brooke Shields and Cary Elwes as a famed author and a grumpy castle owner who cross paths when she journeys to Scotland to purchase his palace.
In the trailer, which you can watch via the video above, Elwes’ agrees to hand over the keys to his kingdom — but not without laying out some conditions and a time frame during which they must be met before he’ll officially sell the property.
See, this guy’s plan is to run Shields’ character out of town with the quirky aspects of actually living in an old Scottish castle, but she’s clearly not that easy to get rid of. And the two slowly, but surely, appear to grow fond of each other as Christmas (the deadline for her to take ownership of the castle) draws near.
Here’s the official logline for the Netflix holiday original film “A Castle for Christmas”:
Famed author, Sophie Brown (Brooke Shields), travels to Scotland hoping to buy a small castle of her own, but the prickly owner, Duke Myles (Cary Elwes), is reluctant to sell to a foreigner. Working to find a compromise, the pair constantly butt heads, but they just may find something more than they were expecting.
“A Castle for Christmas” is written by Ally Carter and Kim Beyer-Johnson and directed by Mary Lambert. Brad Krevoy is producer, with executive producers including Amanda Phillips, Shields, Steven R. McGlothen, Steve Berman, Katrina Stagner and Eric Jarboe.
“A Castle for Christmas” launches Nov. 26 on Netflix.
“A Castle for Christmas” is among several new holiday original movies on Netflix’s 2021 Christmas slate, which also includes the eagerly anticipated third installment of Vanessa Hudgens’ “The Princess Switch” franchise, “The Princess Switch 3: Romancing the Star,” Nina Dobrev’s “Love Hard” and Michael Urie’s “Single All the Way.”
On the TV side, there are scripted shows like “Christmas Flow” and the second season of “How to Ruin Christmas,” plus plenty of holiday-themed unscripted content, like “School of Chocolate,” “The Great British Baking Show: Holidays” and “Blown Away: Christmas.”
