Universal has dated the Paul Feig holiday romantic comedy “Last Christmas” for Nov. 15, 2019, the studio announced Friday.

The studio also moved an untitled Will Packer comedy previously set for that day to Nov. 8, 2019.

“Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke, “Crazy Rich Asians” breakout Henry Golding, and Emma Thompson star in the film, which was inspired by a George Michael song and was written by Thompson and playwright Bryony Kimmings.

Per the studio, Kate (Clarke) harumphs around London, a bundle of bad decisions accompanied by the jangle of bells on her shoes, another irritating consequence from her job as an elf in a year-round Christmas shop. Tom (Golding) seems too good to be true when he walks into her life and starts to see through so many of Kate’s barriers. As London transforms into the most wonderful time of the year, nothing should work for these two. But sometimes, you gotta let the snow fall where it may, you gotta listen to your heart, and you gotta have faith.

“Last Christmas” features the music of George Michael, including the bittersweet title song and some of Michael’s unreleased material. Michael is a Grammy-winning artist who has sold more than 115 million albums and recorded 10 No. 1 singles over the course of his iconic career.

“Last Christmas” is produced by Feig and Jessie Henderson for his Feigco Entertainment, by BAFTA winner David Livingstone for Calamity Films, and Thompson.
