Netflix has revealed new photos from an upcoming Christmas film starring Lindsay Lohan and we’re already hyped.

The set of photos was revealed on Monday (3 October) in a set of social media posts showing off Lohan in the upcoming film Falling for Christmas.

“It’s October 3rd,” Netflix said in a tweet, seemingly referencing Lohan’s famous quote from Mean Girls. “But here’s an early holiday gift.”

The film, set to release on 10 November, sees Lohan’s character Sierra lose her memories after injuring herself in a skiing accident.

With the help of a local lodge owner (Chord Overstreet) and his daughter (Olivia Perez), she sets about rediscovering her identity in the days leading up to Christmas.

Several of the teaser images shown off by Netflix depict a typically cosy Christmas setting, with all the baubles and fake snow you could ask for.

Speaking to Netflix, Lohan said the upcoming film is sure to be “extravagant, temperamental,” and “glamorous.”

“Christmas is a time when family comes together,” she said. “[Falling for Christmas is] such a refreshing, heartwarming romantic comedy and I miss doing those kinds of movies.”

The star also got the chance to learn some new skills during the filming process, including performing her own stunts and even some skiing to boot.

“All the stunt scenes were really fun for me because I haven’t gotten to do that much in a lot of my films,” she said.”When I’m flying off the hill, attempting to ski well and not doing it.

“I love the idea of skiing, [but] I’m not very good at it,” Lohan joked.

The film is directed by Janeen Damian, who is known for High Strung, and is to feature stars such as Jack Wagner, George Young, Blythe Howard, and Chase Ramsey.

It was initially teased in 2021 after Netflix posted a tweet saying that Lohan would star in a romantic comedy about a “newly engaged and spoiled hotel heiress.”

So far, fan reaction has been a mixture of excitement for Lohan’s on-screen return and an uncertain anticipation for the film, with some claiming that the film felt a little bit “Hallmark.”

“This has such strong Hallmark movie vibes I may have to actually watch it,” one user wrote, while another added: “Fancy woman in red meets small town man in green and discovers the magic of Christmas is my favourite movie genre.”

But others were just excited to see anything featuring Lindsay Lohan, with one saying: “The queen has returned,” along with a set of fire emojis.

“Linsday Lohan and Chord Overstreet in a cheesy Christmas movie? I’m in” another said.
