Eddie Murphy’s first holiday film ‘Candy Cane Lane’ heads to Prime Video

Christmas stories are upon us as we slowly hit the festive season.

Written by Kelly Younger, Murphy goes on an adventure in this holiday drama about a man on a mission to win his neighborhood’s annual Christmas home decoration contest.

After a while he makes a deal with a mischievous elf named Pepper (Jillian Bell) to better his chances of winning. She casts a magic spell that brings the 12 Days of Christmas to life, which wreaks havoc on the whole town. On the verge of ruining the festive season for his family, his wife Carol (Tracee Ellis Ross), and their three children race against the clock to break Pepper’s spell, battle deviously magical characters, and save Christmas for everyone.

The story is said to be inspired by Younger’s own holiday experiences in an actual location called Candy Cane Lane in El Segundo, California.
