Angela’s Christmas Wish is a heart-warming tale of a determined little girl who sets out to reunite her family in time for Christmas. Based on the characters from Pulitzer Prize-winning author Frank McCourt, it is a tender and funny story about the importance of family and togetherness.
In our stunning new CG animated sequel – which picks up a year after the events of the original Emmy® nominated special Angela’s Christmas – we discover Angela and her siblings desperately missing their father before the holidays. Angela, being the brave and imaginative young girl she is, comes up with what she believes to be a surefire plan to bring their father home from Australia in time for Christmas and reunite the family! But as with any foolproof plan, there are sure to be a few loose cobblestones along the road!
The new special sees Lucy O’Connell reprise her role as Angela and Oscar-nominated Ruth Negga return as Angela’s strong and loving mother. Also joining this year’s cast, listen for the familiar voice of Jared Harris, known for his work on Mad Men and The Crown, and Outlander’s Caitríona Balfe. Along with a beautiful original song written by Darren Hendley and performed by 15-year-old vocal talent Allie Sherlock.
