Dolly Parton To Star As An Angel In New Netflix Christmas Movie

Dolly Parton is making everyone's holiday season even brighter this year!

On Tuesday (September 29), the country music icon revealed she will star in an upcoming Netflix Christmas movie called Christmas on the Square, alongside Christine Baranski, Jenifer Lewis, Treat Williams and Jeanine Mason. The movie, premiering on November 22, will feature 14 new original songs by Parton as well. Ahead of the film's announcement, the country star released "Christmas on the Square," which appears on her upcoming album, A Holly Dolly Christmas, due out on Friday (October 2).

″#ChristmasOnTheSquare is more than just a song...it’s also a musical! Watch my newest movie, directed by @msdebbieallen and starring Christine Baranski, @JeniferLewis and so many other talented folks, November 22 on @netflixfamily,″ Parton wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of the new movie poster.

According to Variety, the movie follows Regina Fuller (Baranski), a "wealthy and unpleasant woman" who sets out to evict residents of her hometown after her father's death. After encountering an angel (Parton), Regina "has a change of heart."

Parton's upcoming album, A Holly Dolly Christmas, is her first holiday album in 30 years. The project will feature several special guests, including fellow country music icon, Willie Nelson, who teams up with Parton for a remake of the Christmas classic, "Pretty Paper." Additionally, Miley Cyrus, Michael Bublé, Billy Ray Cyrus, Parton's brother Randy Parton, and Jimmy Fallon are also special guests featured on the album.

"I thought, 'I think I'll call it A Holly Dolly Christmas because I love the song 'A Holly Jolly Christmas' with Burl Ives," Parton previously told Billboard of her inspiration for the album's title. "He used to be on all of my Christmas specials all through the years. I think of him as Mr. Christmas. I thought, 'Why don't do I call it something cute and clever, like that or Deck the Halls with Boughs of Dolly, something corny like that.'"
