About “It’s Christmas Again”
A Magical Musical Adventure Through Time coming to theaters November 29 FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY!
Here’s the synopsis from the filmmakers:
Jake Young (Lawson Touliatos) wants nothing more than to spend his Christmas vacation with his girlfriend, Abbey Walker (Leela Owen). So when Abbey volunteers for her church’s Christmas play, Jake is ready to skip Christmas this year until an unexpected turn of events lands him in a field outside Bethlehem on the night Jesus was born. While on his journey with the shepherds to find the promised Messiah, Jake discovers the true meaning of Christmas. Coming this Christmas season, IT’S CHRISTMAS AGAIN is a modern-day musical the whole family will love!
My thoughts about this movie
I LOVE musicals. I love group choreographed dancing. (I even go to YouTube and watch movie dance sequences when I feel a little low. You can find awesome mashups!) And in “It’s Christmas Again”? The movie has now joined my list of favorites for the those two things alone. The music is cheerful and upbeat while still communicating a meaningful message. And the dancing (not to mention the backflips)–incredible.
But. This is not a movie about the entertainment world. Instead, it asks the question: What if Christmas, and Jesus’ birth, weren’t celebrated and recognized? Protagonist Jake isn’t that excited about Christmas. In fact, he is bummed because his girlfriend Abbey isn’t able to go skiing with him on Christmas. Instead, she’s going to play Mary, the mother of Jesus, in the church’s nativity play. Jake thinks it’s a useless idea, and heads off to a friend’s party. At least he *thinks* that’s where he’s going…until an accident sends him back to the fields with the shepherds. Just after the heavenly host appeared to them, and told them:
“Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.Luke 2:10b-22, The Bible (NASB)
So. What if, a young man who couldn’t care less about the true meaning of Christmas gets transported back in time…to see the first Christmas? Romans. Shepherds. Jews, oppressed by Caesar and his minions. And a young father, a teen mother, and that Baby.
That’s got to make an impression. And on Jacob, it does. But is it too late for him to make a difference in his present-day life?
So–this beautiful movie, with incredible singing and dancing, tells a life-changing, faith-creating story. It is a joy to watch. It will touch your heart, and bring meaning to your own family’s faith traditions, Advent, and most of all, Christmas.
Get some tickets. Take yourself and your family to the movie and see “It’s Christmas Again” on November 29. It will bless you!
