Apple TV+ is celebrating the holiday season with the kick-off of its festive programming. Among the sweet and cheerful content available to viewers is the new musical special ‘Home for Christmas.’ Introduced by Apple TV+ today, the 45-minute show features Hannah Waddingham singing an array of classic songs accompanied by cameos from much of the Ted Lasso cast. The production was filmed earlier this year at the London Coliseum in front of a live audience and includes duets with stars such as Leslie Odom Jr., Sam Ryder, and Phil Dunster.
Furthermore, another heartwarming addition is the premiere of ‘The Velveteen Rabbit,’ a loving adaptation of the classic children’s novel. As a special treat for Thanksgiving, Apple TV+ moved up the release of new episodes of its content typically scheduled for Fridays.
Now, subscribers have access to the latest installments of ‘Monarch: Legacy of Monsters,’ ‘For All Mankind,’ ‘Lessons in Chemistry,’ and ‘The Buccaneers’ to enjoy during their Thanksgiving holiday break. Additionally, Apple TV+ plans to roll out even more holiday content leading up to Christmas, including special seasonal episodes of family favorites and a singalong version of ‘Spirited’ starring Will Ferrell and Ryan Reynolds, premiering on December 1. On December 15, subscribers can look forward to the action-comedy movie ‘The Family Plan.’
The star-studded ‘Hannah Waddingham: Home for Christmas’ special not only features memorable solo performances from Waddingham herself, but also a delightful collection of duets alongside Leslie Odom Jr., Sam Ryder, Luke Evans, and Phil Dunster. The soundtrack of all featured songs will be available on Apple Music.
To watch all of the aforementioned Apple original content, viewers can simply subscribe to Apple TV+ at a cost of $9.99 per month. New subscribers are eligible for a seven-day free trial. The streaming service is accessible through the Apple TV app on a variety of devices including iPhone, iPad, Mac, smart TVs, Amazon Fire Stick, Roku, PlayStation, Xbox, and on the web at tv.apple.com.
