Stan has released the trailer for a brand new Stan Original film, Jones Family Christmas.
Following the success of A Sunburnt Christmas, Christmas on the Farm, and Christmas Ransom, Stan is releasing yet another original Christmas-themed movie just in time for the holidays. This isn’t a Christmas film without some serious aspects, as it’s about a multi-generational family whose Christmas gathering is cut short by Australian bushfires.
Check out the trailer for Jones Family Christmas below.
Eccentric grandmother Heather Jones (Heather Mitchell) has finally managed to get her family under her roof for Christmas. But all is not merry and bright in this rural home. From heartbreak and depression, to meddling mothers and forced frivolity – every member of Heather’s extended clan is fighting an internal battle. And outside things aren’t much better. Before Heather has a chance to interrogate her kids, the family receives a fire evacuation order. Suddenly, the Joneses are on the run. As the mercury rises and danger closes in, Heather and her family must band together as they rediscover what matters most – each other.
The film stars Heather Mitchell (Love Me) alongside Ella Scott Lynch (Love Child), Max McKenna (While The Men Are Away), Neil Melville (Brilliant Lies), Nicholas Denton, Dushan Philips (Stan Original Series The Gloaming), Tahlee Fereday (Fisk), Jimmy Rees (Giggle and Hoot), Genevieve Morris (Stan Original Series No Activity), Marg Downey (The Newsreader), Tegan Higginbotham (Oddball), Michael Logo (Colin From Accounts), Akhilesh Jain (Deendayal Ek Yug Purush), Fiona Choi (The Family Law), Bev Killick (Savage River) and Australian comedian Tanya Hennessy.
Jones Family Christmas is written by Tegan Higginbotham, who based the film on true events from her own life. It is directed by Stef Smith (It’s Fine, I’m Fine).
You can stream Jones Family Christmas on November 23, only on Stan.
