New Delhi: Actor-comedian Eddie Murphy’s upcoming movie “Candy Cane Lane” will premiere on Prime Video on December 1, the streamer announced Wednesday.
Veteran filmmaker Reginald Hudlin, who previously worked with Murphy on the 1992 hit “Boomerang”, has directed the holiday comedy from a screenplay written by Kelly Younger.
The movie is about a man on a mission to win his neighbourhood’s annual Christmas home decoration contest, according to the official synopsis.
“After Chris (Eddie Murphy) inadvertently makes a deal with a mischievous elf named Pepper (Jillian Bell) to better his chances of winning, she casts a magic spell that brings the 12 Days of Christmas to life and wreaks havoc on the whole town.
“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,” read the synopsis.
