The trailer for Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey was released on Sunday, inviting viewers into the magical world of Cobbleton, the home of renowned toymaker Jenonicus Jangle.

It will be a special treat for Norfolk residents as Norwich’s historic Elm Street was transformed into a winter wonderland back in June last year as one of 12 locations used in the film.
