New details have been revealed by Deadline about an upcoming new live-action Disney holiday film, “Dashing Through The Snow”, and it is going to star Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Lil Rel Howery, and Teyonah Parris.
The film tells the story of a divorced social worker for the Atlanta police department who despises Christmas due to a painful childhood memory. When sent on a call while spending Christmas Eve with his daughter, he inadvertently evokes the wrath of a local politician but meets a man who helps him understand the joy and magic of Christmas.
Production is currently underway in Atlanta and is due to be released on Disney+ this upcoming holiday season.
This new film is going to be directed by Tim Story, who is also going to be an executive producer. It will be produced by Will Packer through his Will Packer Productions, and John Jacobs through his Smart Entertainment. Johanna Byer, Ross Fanger and Zac Unterman are all going to be executive producers on the film.
Chris “Ludacris” Bridges has previously starred in the “Fast and Furious” films. Lil Rel Howery has recently starred in the Hulu/Star Original film, “Vacation Friends”, and Teyonah Parris has starred in the Disney+ Original series, “WandaVision”.
Disney has been developing this new Christmas film since 2016, and Kevin Hart has been previously linked to star in the film.
It will also star Oscar Nunez, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Ravi Patel, Marcus Lewis and Madison Skye Validum.
Disney hasn’t officially revealed any details on this film, so it’s likely to be officially announced at the D23 Expo, which takes place in September.
