2. Angela’s Christmas Wish (2020)

Angela’s Christmas Wish is a superb sequel to the beloved Angela’s Christmas that was released back in 2017. The next chapter has Academy Award nominee Ruth Negga return to the role of Angela along with Lucy O’Connell and Brendan Mullins. Damien O’Connor, who co-wrote and directed the first affair, had the difficult task of doing both once again for Angela’s Christmas Wish after having used up all the source material from the Frank McCourt written story that inspired Angela’s Christmas.

The exciting narrative for the next movie is one the entire family can enjoy and is definitely one fans of the original will not want to miss. Three years later, the titular character is back again to make sure everyone experiences the best parts of Christmas, but this time things are getting personal for the movie’s leading player. This time around, Angela embarks on an epic holiday-themed endeavor to reunite her family for Christmas, including her father, who is working in Australia. The follow-up to the Emmy nominated motion picture came out on Netflix on December 1st, 2020, just in time for the holidays and hopefully adding to everyone’s yearly traditions for the season.
