The Times has committed to reviewing film publications on the COVID-19 pandemic. Since going to the movies is risky, we remind readers to follow the health and safety guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the local health authorities.
Writer/director David E. Talbert’s incredible and groundbreaking fantasy musical “Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey” joins the classic Christmas movie franchise. Cleverly designed, beautifully decorated, and beautifully finished, this fantasy sings almost Victorian songs that you can enjoy as a communal experience on the big screen. Still, the film, which released in a limited edition on Friday, expected to have large home audiences when it launches on Netflix next week.

But can they stop the cowardly and desperate Gustafson who has made decades of discoveries about Jeronicus? As the script reminds you, you just have to believe.
There many stories, but a series of great musical numbers written by Talbert, Philip Lawrence, Davy Nathan. Michael Diskin keeps things fast, clear, and fun while supporting. The plot and gleefully choreographed by Ashley Wallen in a variety of great styles. A “Today” caliber live from Broadway; Excellent production of “Magic Man G”; Rising “Square Roots of Possibility” and R&B Legends “Make It Work” (with breathtaking vocals from former student “Dreamgirls” Rose) are among the highlights.
Led by Talbert, the performers are equally strong and determined. Putting the character above the cartoon and rarely making the candy-sweet. Lisa Davina Phillip, a loving city postman who deals with Jeronicus, loves fast comics. And, like in a magical movie, don’t surprise by Whitaker and Key’s musical skills.
