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?

Where is it streaming?

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.

Where to watch How the Grinch Stole Christmas (both versions)
The grinch talks to a girl in How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

When someone asks you which fictional character best represents Christmas, which one immediately comes to mind? OK, besides Santa Claus? Some Gen-Xers might conjure up Macauley Culkin's Kevin McCallister from Home Alone. Gen Z may offer Will Ferrell as the titular Elf. But to many baby boomers, there remains only one character who symbolizes the holidays: the Grinch!

Everyone's favorite surly green creature from Mount Crumpit is a Christmas staple and one that has been immortalized in not one, not two, but three movies and TV shows that have won over generation after generation of kids. Some like the original animated 1960s half-hour episode best while others prefer the manic 2000 live-action Jim Carrey movie. No matter which version you prefer, we're here to show where you can stream all of them.
