Watch Eddie Murphy and Tracee Ellis Ross in the New ‘Candy Cane Lane’ Full Trailer


November 9, 2023

Eddie Murphy and Tracee Ellis Ross are getting in the holiday spirit!

Murphy and Ross appear in the first full trailer for “Candy Cane Lane,” an upcoming holiday comedy from Prime Video that is the actor’s first Christmas movie. The protagonist (played by Murphy), Chris, makes a Christmas wish that brings on some unexpected consequences.

According to a synopsis of the film, Chris is “on a mission to win his neighborhood’s annual Christmas home decoration contest.” He makes a deal with a “mischievous elf” named Pepper to improve his chances of winning the competition when she casts a “magic spell that brings the 12 Days of Christmas to life and wreaks havoc on the whole town.”


Director Reginald Hudlin recently told People that Ross’ character is “a great wife, a great mother of three kids, and a hardworking executive up for a promotion at the distribution center where she works. When Christmas and her family are threatened by supernatural forces, her Mama Bear instincts kick into the fullest.”

Hudlin told People in October, “I can say confidently you’ve never seen a holiday movie like this!”

“We have jump scares, car chases, and kung-fu fighting, plus all the holiday feels,” he added.


“Candy Cane Lane” premieres on Prime Video on Dec. 1.
