Although the details of the new releases are still under wraps, here's what we know so far:

Jingle Bells, Wedding Bells

This movie pairs Candace Cameron Bure with Cameron Mathison and is sure to be a hit! CCB is a busy lady--not only will she star in The Ainsley McGreggor Mysteries: A Case for the Winemaker in October, she is also headlining a second Christmas movie this season called A Christmas Less Traveled opposite Eric Johnson.

A Wreathmaker Christmas

If you love Casey Elliott from the Destined at Christmas installments, you'll be thrilled to know he's returning to GAF for a new 2024 Christmas movie. His co-star is Kristin Wollett from GAF's series, County Rescue.

Elliott is also a member of the music trio, Gentri, which performed a Christ-centered Christmas special in 2023 on GAF called Finding Christmas.

A Royal Christmas Ballet

Jonathan Stoddard returns in his third royal role for the network following his prior successes in A Royal Christmas on Ice (2022) and A Royal Christmas Holiday (2023). It's the second time he will be paired with Brittany Underwood, so it has not yet been revealed whether this movie is a continuation of their love story from the 2023 or if the movie stands alone.

Christmas In Scotland

The cast and the details of this movie have not been released.

Little Women Christmas

We only have the title to pique our curiosity! When more details are forthcoming, this post will be updated.

Great American Christmas 2024: The Movies That Were Announced Previously

With so many new titles being rolled out over time, it's easy to lose track of the Christmas movies that Great American Family has already announced. (Some are also working titles that may change before Christmas).

Here's a recap:

A Vintage Christmas

Merritt Patterson and Christopher Russell co-star. Here's the synopsis from GAF's website:

Tessa (Patterson) is a dedicated historian and preservationist in her hometown of Oak Creek, an old-fashioned and passionate protector of the nostalgic. Sparks fly when a business developer, Noah (Russell) arrives in Oak Creek with plans to tear down an abandoned Post Office and replace it with a sleek, modern office complex. There are internal and external struggles among many in the community to arrive at a solution that serves the greater good for all concerned. As the clock ticks toward Christmas, the race to settle the dispute through concessions and compromise is on.

Love at the Kettle

Alexa and Carlos PenaVega star in this original movie.

Up-and-coming singer songwriter Bella Harlan (Alexa PenaVega) comes home for Christmas and enlists her high-school songwriting partner Jack Grayton (Carlos PenaVega) to craft a song to win back her rockstar boyfriend by Christmas. As the two reunite for the first time in a decade, they embark on a Christmas journey down memory lane, and soon realize true love may be closer than they thought. The heart of the movie centers on Jack’s role with The Salvation Army, and Bella soon finds herself inspired by his devotion and passion to a life of doing the most good. Filled with charming original music and its share of twists and turns, Love At the Kettle demonstrates the importance of never losing sight of the ones who matter the most.

A Royal Christmas Ball

Remember Danica McKellar's job-dropping dance performance in Swing into Romance? We get to see her fancy footwork again in this Christmas movie! Her co-star is Oliver Rice, and the waltzes are choreographed by Dancing with the Stars pro, Gleb Savchenko (who also appeared in Swing into Romance).

Here's the plot:

Chelsea Jones (McKellar) is a dance instructor and studio owner in Chicago who inspires kids to find themselves through dance. Just before Christmas, Chelsea discovers a photo she’s never seen before. Chelsea thinks the young woman is her birth mother who passed away when she was only five years old. The woman is in a wedding dress tugging on the hand of a man wearing a wedding ring, but that is all that can be seen of the man Chelsea believes may be her father. The photo’s handwritten inscription reads, “Our place, Havenshire, December 23, 1984.” With only the internet, a plane ticket, and lifelong determination to go on, Chelsea now has four days in Havenshire to solve the mystery of her birth family. Along the way, she’ll have to sneak into a castle, teach a stubborn Prince how to dance, and be in just the right place on Christmas Eve when the bells toll.

A Christmas Less Traveled

Starring Candace Cameron Bure and Eric Johnson, this movie is centers on “The Dine and Dash” diner, which has a stack of mounting unpaid bills, forcing its owner, Desi (Bure) to sell her beloved, mint condition, cherry red 1964 Ford F-100, a gift from her deceased father. As Desi visits the vintage truck one last time, she discovers a recorded message from her dad on an old audio cassette. Desi’s Dad’s voice sends her and “Old Red” out to retrace her family’s most memorable moments one last time. Just as the journey begins, Desi meets Greyson (Johnson) who offers her a generous payment in exchange for a ride to “close the most important deal” of his life. Little do Desi and Greyson realize the less traveled road will reveal more about each of them than they could have ever known.

A Prince in Paradise 2: A Royal Proposal

This original GAF sequel, once again, stars Rhiannon Fish and Mitchell Bourke. What happens next for this couple?

Olivia (Fish) and Prince Alexander (Bourke) travel together to his family’s majestic palace in Torovia to spend Christmas with their two families. Despite busy schedules that push the couple in different directions, the couple seems poised to come together for a magical and unforgettable Christmas, until clashing cultures within the families lead to comedic mishaps.

My Grown-Up Christmas Wish

Real-life husband and wife team, Mario and Courtney Lopez, star in this magical movie:

Mayor Brian Ortega (Mario Lopez) is beloved in the idyllic community of Long Grove. While decorating for Christmas with the residents, Brian discovers his childhood Christmas wish list which magically begins to come true, reminding Brian about the spirit and joy of the holiday. Returning to town for Christmas is Brian’s childhood friend Nina Meyers (Courtney Lopez), and soon a connection becomes undeniable as she helps Brian face a new challenge for the town. As Brian’s wishes come true, he inspires the town to showcase its warm culture and values in order to stop the modern world from stifling the charm and heart of Long Grove.  

Aurora Christmas

This star-studded original movie features the talents of Jill Wagner, Jesse Hutch, Lauren Holly, and Bruce Boxleitner.

Erin (Wagner) joins her dad Doug (Boxleitner) for a Christmas in the family’s former hometown of Aurora on a mission that is part business – selling the family home – and major bucket list item for Erin to see the Aurora Borealis light up the Northern sky. Realtor Lori (Holly) and family friend and local tour guide Trevor (Hutch) create a Christmas inspired at every turn by faith, love, and hope, so much so that Christmas bells hung over decades in a forest grove ring an unbroken song, a harbinger of miracles to come.

Wish this was on this was on Youtubetv like the other Hallmark channels. When I had cable I really enjoyed this channel. I watched more than the others. If there is anyway possible to add this channel to the lineup on YouTubetv, please do so. I miss these great movies. Thank you Deborah Ramsey.
