The festive film, directed by David E. Talbert and produced by singer John Legend, features scenes that were shot in the city last June with Elm Hill transformed into a Victorian street covered in snow.

The story is set in the fantasy town of Cobbleton and follows toymaker Jeronicus Jangle (Forest Whitaker) who finally finishes an invention that will bring him great fortune.
