1,000 Miles From Christmas - What We Know So Far

Netflix has certainly gotten into the Christmas spirit over the last few years. The streaming platform has become a go-to destination for holiday-themed movies, even giving the Hallmark Channel a reason to look over its shoulders. From "The Princess Switch" to "Operation Christmas Drop," Netflix has a plethora of festive choices once Halloween has come and gone. And it doesn't appear as though the service will slouch in 2021.

Plenty of fans have likely marked on their calendars the highly anticipated threequel to "The Princess Switch," affectionately subtitled "Romancing the Star." That won't be the only movie to put you in the Christmas spirit as Netflix also has "The Claus Family," "A Castle for Christmas," and "1,000 Miles From Christmas" coming up, to name a few. Don't fret if that last one has fallen under your radar. There's plenty of time between now and when it's finally released to set the alarm, and it's sure to make a believer out of any Scrooge out there. 

What's the release date for 1,000 Miles From Christmas?

Popsugar reports that the flick has a release date set for December 24, 2021. It should make for excellent viewing when you've gathered with your family or other loved ones and want something to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
