With the anticipation of unwrapping presents on Christmas morning, queer folks (and all) who've been excited about Clea DuVall's holiday romcom that centers a lesbian couple, can now press play on the trailer! And the first trailer for the movie that stars Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Davis as a couple has all the jingle bells, whistles, and Rudolphs you could expect from a queer Christmas movie.
The first LGBTQ+-focused holiday rom-com backed by a major studio, Happiest Season is directed by DuVall and written by her and her writing partner Mary Holland. It tells the story of Harper (Davis) and Abby (Stewart), who run into problems when, as they are headed home for the holidays to visit Harper’s overachieving family, Harper reveals some crucial information. The movie costars Holland, Dan Levy, Victor Garber, Mary Steenburgen, Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza, and Ana Gasteyer. It’s a full-on same-sex romantic comedy with all of the holiday fixings. And it also features a soundtrack featuring all LGBTQ+ musicians that is the icing on the gingerbread people cookies.
Hulu bought Happiest Season from Sony in late October amid the continued shuttering of movie theaters. Now, audiences everywhere can watch the romance unfold over Thanksgiving week when it drops on Nov. 25.
