Is there a trailer?

There certainly is...

Noelle says: “Christmas runs in my family. My dad was Santa and now it’s my brother Nick’s turn to wear the hat.” But the trailer reveals that Nick might not be ideally suited to the job - for a start we see him getting wedged in a chimney!”

And Nick says, “Sometimes I dream of getting out.” And then we see newspaper headlines screaming, “Where’s Santa”.

It’s revealed that for the first time in 2,000 years Santa has disappeared…  Noelle needs to find him and quickly or Christmas will be wrecked!

Noelle arrives on Disney Plus on November 27th.
