By Movieguide® Staff

Here is Movieguide®’s list for the best family-friendly and faith-filled holiday movies streaming now on Netflix!

 

Netflix

KLAUS

Quality:
****
Content:
+1 Moderately questionable elements. (Discernment required for young children.)
KLAUS is an animated fantasy about a young postman who teams up with a toymaker named Klaus to deliver toys to children living in a faraway, unhappy town split in two by a terrible feud. KLAUS has some cartoon violence, brief implied magic and no references to Christmas, but it’s a witty, charming movie with heartwarming moments.

THE CHRISTMAS CHRONICLES: PART TWO

Quality:
****
Content:
+1 Moderately questionable elements. (Discernment required for young children.)
THE CHRISTMAS CHRONICLES: PART TWO is an adventure-filled family Christmas movie about a former elf who wants to take the star that powers the North Pole for his own greedy motives, unless Santa and his team band together to stop him. THE CHRISTMAS CHRONICLES: PART TWO is an engaging Christmas movie with plenty of jeopardy, strong moral elements and references to the Star of Bethlehem, but there are some magical Santa Claus elements and light action violence.

ALIEN XMAS

Quality:
****
Content:
+2 Moderately questionable elements.
ALIEN XMAS is an adorable animated Christmas special on Netflix about an alien named X who learns about the Christmas spirit. ALIEN XMAS is an adorable Christmas special with strong moral, redemptive values that rebukes greed and extols kindness, family, sacrificial love, and generosity, but it never directly addresses the birth of Jesus the Messiah, the true meaning of Christmas.

THE PRINCESS SWITCH: SWITCHED AGAIN

Quality:
****
Content:
+2 Moderately questionable elements.
In THE PRINCESS SWITCH: SWITCHED AGAIN, Stacy tries to help her friend, Kevin, get back together with Margaret, who’s about to be crowned Queen of Montenaro, but Margaret’s greedy, conniving cousin, Fiona, throws a monkey wrench into Stacy’s plans. Streaming on Netflix, THE PRINCESS SWITCH: SWITCHED AGAIN takes a while to get started, but the movie’s second half is funny, with some good jeopardy, and has an uplifting ending with strong, overt Christian, biblical elements.

PRINCESS SWITCH 3: ROMANCING THE STAR

Quality:
****
Content:
+2 Moderately questionable elements.
In THE PRINCESS SWITCH 3: ROMANCING THE STAR, Queen Margaret and Princess Stacy call in their mischievous cousin, Fiona, after a beautiful Christian relic that belonged to St. Nicholas is stolen. Streaming on Netflix, THE PRINCESS SWITCH 3 is an entertaining, fun, enjoyable Christmas movie with a Christian, moral worldview about forgiveness, repentance and doing the right thing.

OPERATION CHRISTMAS DROP

Quality:
***
Content:
+3 Some minor questionable elements. (Media-wisdom is suggested to discuss.)
OPERATION CHRISTMAS DROP is a romantic comedy streaming on Netflix about a Congressional aide named Erica, who’s forced by her boss to travel to Gaum and work over the Christmas holidays against the backdrop of Anderson Air Force Base’s annual humanitarian Christmas drop. The comedy in OPERATION CHRISTMAS DROP is hit or miss, but the movie’s historical background, good performances and heartfelt messages of humility, sacrifice, love, and Christmas cheer overshadow the blandness.

DOLLY PARTON’S CHRISTMAS ON THE SQUARE

Quality:
****
Content:
-1 Caution advised for older children, including teenagers, and sensitive adults.
DOLLY PARTON’S CHRISTMAS ON THE SQUARE is an entertaining, flamboyant musical on Netflix about a small town with a vibrant church threatened by a wicked real estate woman, whose father built the town, who wants to sell the whole town to build the biggest mall in America. CHRISTMAS ON THE SQUARE has a powerful, emotional redemptive ending, but focuses more on angels than on Jesus at Christmas, has some light foul language and heavy themes, so caution is advised.

JINGLE JANGLE: A CHRISTMAS JOURNEY

Quality:
****
Content:
+1 Moderately questionable elements. (Discernment required for young children.)
JINGLE JANGLE: A CHRISTMAS JOURNEY follows an inventor who has lost his motivation when his work is stolen and his wife passes away, but is inspired once again when his granddaughter comes to live with him. Streaming on Netflix, JINGLE JANGLE: A CHRISTMAS JOURNEY is a fun, exciting, heartfelt musical that has a strong moral, redemptive worldview stressing love, family, forgiveness, and the joy of creation and including positive references to Christmas and prayer, but focuses too much on personal belief.
