To celebrate the release of Candy Cane Lane, the new original movie streaming soon on Prime Video, we had the pleasure of chatting to some of its filmmakers and get a little festive.

Eddie Murphy stars in this holiday comedy adventure about a man on a mission to win his neighbourhood’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, 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.

Chatting to writer Kelly Younger and director Reginald Hudlin (who reunites with Murphy after their 1992 comedy Boomerang), we chat about getting festive, bringing the story to life, why the art and War of festive decoration is a great starting point for comedy, the importance of family at the festive period, Eddie Murphy and their wonderful cast and their favourite Christmas must-sees.
