First Look at Dolly Parton’s Upcoming Christmas Musical Special on NBC

NOTE: This article is 2 months old and may not include the most recent information.

The first trailer for Dolly Parton’s upcoming Christmas musical has been released by NBC. “Dolly Parton’s Mountain Magic Christmas,” starring the worldwide icon and 2022 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member, will premiere on NBC on Thursday, December 1 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Dolly will be joined on the two-hour Christmas special by musical guests Jimmy Fallon, Willie Nelson, Billy Ray Cyrus, Jimmie Allen, Zach Williams, and Miley Cyrus.

Starring with Ana Gasteyer is Tom Everett Scott, Angel Parker, and Bryan Batt. The cast also includes Mary Lane Haskell, Brendan Bradley, John Newberg, Rachel Parton George, Cassie Parton Griffith, Rhoda Griffis, Kathryn Burns, Liam Rauhoff, and Steve Summers.

The film will include two of Dolly’s classic songs, “9 to 5” and “I Will Always Love You,” as well as a new Christmas tune. Overall, there are countless songs that encapsulate the spirit of Christmas and the significance of spending time with family over the holidays.

“Dolly Parton’s Mountain Magic Christmas,” a modern-day movie musical about the making of a network TV special, is the frenetic backstage story and delightful on-camera results of Dolly’s desire to uplift an exhausted world’s spirits by sharing the unique mountain magic she has always found in and around Dollywood at Christmas.

Dolly finds herself experiencing a private journey through her past during the film’s production numbers and rehearsal mayhem, led by the inexplicable appearances of her own Three Wise Mountain Men. When her big special airs, a renewed and inspired Dolly goes rogue and shows the world that the true magic of Christmas lies in the hearts of the children we all once were, the realization that Christmas is about the people we share it with, and how her faith remains the common thread between Christmases past, present, and future.
