Dolly Parton’s Christ-Centered Christmas Special Premieres Dec. 1

By Movieguide® Staff

Dolly Parton’s MOUNTAIN MAGIC CHRISTMAS premieres Thursday, Dec. 1, at 8 p.m. ET on NBC and does a wonderful job celebrating the heart of Christmas — Christ, Himself.

The Movieguide® Grace Prize® winner produced the special, along with fellow Movieguide® Award winner Sam Haskell.

“A modern-day movie musical about the making of a network TV special, Dolly Parton’s Mountain Magic Christmas is the frenetic backstage story and delightful on-camera results of Dolly’s desire to uplift an exhausted world’s spirits by sharing the unique mountain magic she has always found in and around Dollywood at Christmas. Throughout the movie’s production numbers and rehearsal chaos, Dolly finds herself taking a private journey into her past, guided by the mysterious appearances of her personal Three Wise Mountain Men,” according to the NBC synopsis.

“When it’s time for her big special to air, a renewed and inspired Dolly goes rogue and shows the world that the real magic of Christmas lies in the hearts of the children we all once were, the realization that Christmas is about the people we share it with, and how her faith remains the common thread between Christmases past, present, and future,” the synopsis continues.
