Three new Hallmark Christmas movies will have their premiere in July, including a romantic comedy that stars real-life couple and When Calls the Heart cast mates Kayla Wallace and Kevin McGarry. My Grown-Up Christmas List, Campfire Christmas, and Christmas in Toyland will air as part of Hallmark’s Christmas in July lineup.
The event will start early this year. On June 24, Hallmark Movies and Mysteries will begin a week-long Christmas movie marathon, airing holiday-themed movies round-the-clock.
Hallmark Channel will take over on July 1, airing winter favorites from 10/9c in the morning until midnight every day. Fans themselves can influence the lineup by voting for their favorites on the Hallmark Movie Checklist app.
“Viewers will be able to retreat from the hot summer sun and transport themselves to the snowy scenes of holiday movies,” according to a statement from Hallmark Channel.
Three new Hallmark Christmas movies
The first of the new films to air will be My Grown-Up Christmas List, which stars real-life couple and When Calls the Heart castmates Kayla Wallace and Kevin McGarry. The romantic comedy is based on the hit song of the same name by Amy Grant and David Foster. A synopsis from the network reads as follows:
“Taylor (Wallace), a journalist, and Luke (McGarry), in the military, share a special bond that grows between them over the course of five Christmases that they spend together and apart.”
Next up is Campfire Christmas. Starring Tori Anderson and Corbin Bleu, the movie tells the story of a woman named Peyton (Anderson) who finds romance when her parents throw a Christmas-themed reunion at the summer camp they own and run.
Finally, Christmas in Toyland will premiere on July 23. The romantic-comedy stars Vanessa Lengies and Jesse Hutch. According to a description from the network, Lengies plays a data analyst and Hutch a toy store owner, who come together before Christmas to try to save hundreds of jobs.
The movies will premiere on Saturday nights on Hallmark Channel.
