Michelle Pfeiffer to Star in New Streaming Christmas Movie

Michael Showhalter and Michelle Pfeiffer to star in an Amazon MGM Christmas movie later this year.

Who could have imagined that Christmas movies would become such a big thing when Hallmark Channel aired a single movie back in 2000. The movie count inched up each year until Hallmark Channel's Countdown to Christmas launched back in 2010 with 11 original films. Now, Lifetime, UPtv, Great American Family, Freeform and Netflix have jumped on the Christmas movie bandwagon with easily over a hundred new original movie premiering in 2023 across all networks. These movies  now draw top talent in front and behind the camera with stars like Kristin Chenoweth, Neil Patrick Harris and Dolly Parton joining the seasonal flicks. Now, Hollywood star Michelle Pfeiffer will join that list in the upcoming Amazon MGM movie, Oh. What. Fun.

Here's what we know about Michelle Pfeiffer's Christmas movie so far.
