Set in a fictional town called Cobbleton, the story follows legendary toymaker Jeronicus Jangle whose fanciful inventions burst with whimsy and wonder. But when his trusted apprentice steals his most prized creation, it’s up to his equally bright and inventive granddaughter (and a long-forgotten invention) to heal old wounds and reawaken the magic within.
The movie was shot in the historic British town of Norwich, where the crew transformed the cobbled streets and houses in the area into a Victorian winter wonderland, perfect for the holidays.
Oscar-winner Forest Whitaker stars as Jeronicus Jangle alongside Keegan-Michael Key as his trusted apprentice, and newcomer Madalen Mills as Jangle’s granddaughter.
The film also features the talents of Ricky Martin, Phylicia Rashad, Anika Noni Rose, Sharon Rose, Kieron Dyer, Justin Cornwell, Lisa Davina Phillip, and Hugh Bonneville.
Written and directed by David E. Talbert, Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey features original songs by John Legend, Philip Lawrence, Davy Nathan, and This Day performed by Usher and Kiana Ledé.
Legend and Mike Jackson’s Get Lifted Film Co are producing with 260 Degrees Entertainment’s Talbert, Golden Girl Inc’s Lyn Sisson-Talbert, Burr! Productions’ Kristin Burr, and Brillstein Entertainment Partners’ David McIlvain. Get Lifted’s Ty Stiklorious executive produces with Vicki Dee Rock.
