Candace Cameron Bure Teams Up With FULLER HOUSE Co-Star in Upcoming Hallmark Christmas Movie

By Movieguide® Staff

Hallmark recently started their 2021 Countdown to Christmas lineup on Oct. 22, inviting fans into the holiday season early.

Candace Cameron Bure, who is often called Hallmark’s Christmas queen, stars in the upcoming movie, THE CHRISTMAS CONTEST, set to premiere Thanksgiving weekend.

The movie, scheduled for Nov. 28, sees Bure reunite with her FULLER HOUSE co-star John Brotherton.

Bure and Brotherton play exes who end up competing in a Christmas contest.

Bure revealed that she reached out to Brotherton after FULLER HOUSE came to an end in 2020.

“It all started with a phone call,” John told E! News. “I was sitting at the beach on the Jersey Shore and Candace calls me and she’s like, ‘So, I’ve got an idea.’ Long story short, when she sent me the script, it was such a warm, fuzzy feeling and it was like a throwback to the rom-com of when we were kids. It made me smile, it made me laugh and…there is a moment in the end that made me shed a tear.”

“This is totally for all the fans that wanted Matt and D.J. together,” Bure said. “Absolutely, 100 percent!”

The co-star hinted at the Christmas movie’s potential FULLER HOUSE Easter eggs.

“I think there’s some Fuller House fans out there that will feel satisfied if they weren’t the first time around when we used to work together,” he said.

“There’s lots of fun Easter eggs for those Fuller House fans. It’s a rom-com. There’s a lot of comedy and a lot of heart,” she added.

Actress Candace Cameron Bure says she “absolutely loves” being associated with the Hallmark Christmas movies.

“I’ve had a long-standing relationship with Hallmark Channel for 12 years,” Bure told The Day. “Being intentional with my career and my choices, their branding has always lined up with what I want to represent and with the type of programming that I do, which is all family-friendly entertainment. And so I love that.”

Bure, a devout Christian, is also known for her roles in FULL HOUSE and its reboot, FULLER HOUSE.

“I have fans who are 6 years old who recognize me as D.J. Tanner, whether it’s from the original show or the new show on Netflix. And then I have 60-year-old fans that love me on Hallmark Channel,” Bure said. “I couldn’t be more thrilled. I love being associated with Christmas — it’s my favorite holiday of the year.”
