This Christmas season will come along with an alternate enthusiasm since actor/comedian Eddie Murphy has a novel for filmaholics called the ‘ Candy Cane Lane’. The film which will take an adventurous turn, is about a couple and their three children.
CCL is set to be released on December 1, 2023 and will be streaming globally on Prime Video.
Prime Video has provided us with a sneak look of Reginald Hudlin’s new movie, Candy Cane Lane, starring Eddie Murphy as Chris and Tracee Ellis Ross as Carol. This film is all about the Christmas ‘fever’.
The story follows Chris and Carol, a couple with three kids, who find themselves in a race against time. They must confront magical and mischievous adversaries to protect everyone’s holiday spirit.
Eddie Murphy stars in this holiday comedy adventure about a man on a mission to win his neighborhood’s annual Christmas home decoration contest. After Chris (Eddie Murphy) inadvertently makes a deal with a mischievous elf named Pepper (Jillian Bell) to better his chances of winning, Pepper casts a spell that brings the whole town to life, creating delightful chaos all around.
Now, the real fun begins. At the risk of ruining the holidays for his family, Chris, his wife Carol (Tracee Ellis Ross), and their three children must race against the clock to break Pepper’s spell, battle deviously magical characters, and save Christmas for everyone.
Reginald Hudlin, who directed the film, previously worked with Eddie Murphy and Halle Berry on the romantic comedy ‘Boomerang’ in 1992. He shared that this time, they’re both family-oriented guys living in Los Angeles, and they both love Christmas.
The cast of Candy Cane Lane also includes talented actors like Ken Marino, Thaddeus J. Mixson, Chris Redd, and Nick Offerman. The movie was written by Kelly Younger and produced by a team including Brian Grazer, Eddie Murphy, Karen Lunder, and Charisse Hewitt-Webster.
