Where to watch Dolly Parton’s Mountain Magic Christmas

It wouldn’t be Christmas without Dolly Parton. The popular country singer and 9 to 5 actress had put her stamp on the holiday long before a certain “elusive chanteuse” pop singer proclaimed herself the “Queen of Christmas.” With movies like Christmas at Dollywood, Coat of Many Colors, and last year’s Emmy-nominated Netflix hit Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square, the popular singer has established herself on the small screen as a holiday icon.

This year, she’s back with a new TV movie, Dolly Parton’s Mountain Magic Christmas. Packed with good cheer and surprising musical performances, the movie promises to continue the tradition of Dolly’s earlier movies by bringing the holidays to everyone’s home. But where can one watch it and when?

How much does it cost?

There is no fee to sign up for the most basic level of Peacock, and no credit card is required upon signing up. All that’s needed is an email address for users to access 10,000-plus hours of content for free. The free tier is very limiting in terms of content. If you would like to access more programs from Peacock, there are various paid tiers to explore.

Peacock Premium is the first paid tier from the streaming service, with access to over 80,000 hours of entertainment for a monthly price of $5, or $50 per year. This tier contains ads but allows users to access new films and live events. If this tier is too restricting, users can upgrade to Peacock Premium Plus, which costs $10 per month, or $100 per year. Premium Plus includes everything from Premium but contains no ads and allows users to download and watch programs offline.

Dolly Parton's Mountain Magic Christmas | First Look | NBC

It looks like a fun time to pass the time and get into the holiday spirit. Here’s the official synopsis:

Dolly Parton’s Mountain Magic Christmas showcases the frenetic backstage story and delightful on-camera results of Dolly’s desire to uplift an exhausted world’s spirits by sharing the unique ‘mountain magic’ she has always found in and around Dollywood at Christmas. Throughout the movie’s production numbers and rehearsal chaos, Dolly finds herself taking a private journey into her past, guided by the mysterious appearances of her personal Three Wise Men. When it’s time for her big special to air live, a renewed and inspired Dolly goes rogue and shows the world that the real magic of Christmas lies in the hearts of the children we all once were, the realization that Christmas is about the people we share it with, and how her faith remains the common thread between Christmases past, present, and future.”

The movie will have musical performances by Miley Cyrus, her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, Jimmie Allen, Zach Williams, Willie Nelson, and … Jimmy Fallon?!? Yes, the late-night talk show host is somehow in this, and singing to boot.

The cast includes SNL alum Ana Gasteyer, Angel Parker, Tom Everett Scott, and, of course, Dolly Parton herself. The movie runs approximately two hours with ads and will have dance choreography by Emmy-nominated choreographer Kathryn Burns.

It's January, so you probably don't want to be reminded about the holidays. The presents have all been opened, the Christmas trees are in the garbage somewhere (we hope), and that pesky holiday weight is still not coming off.

Yet there's one good reason to revisit the holiday spirit, and that's Violent Night. The 2022 movie starring Stranger Things' David Harbour as a very bad Santa was an unexpected hit when it was released in movie theaters, grossing around $75 million worldwide off a modest $20 million budget. The action-comedy is set to start streaming soon, but when and where? DT has all the info you need to watch this new Christmas classic.
