A few Notes:

A Prince for Christmas was previously known as Small Town Prince.

Also, Christmas Truce (you may recall) was previously mentioned on this site - when it was first discovered, as they were filming. I personally thought (and I think some of you did, too!) that it looked more like a PBS type film, but I am quite interested to see ION open it's doors to a different type of Christmas film, then they typically air. Looks like a fascinating film, based on real history.

I'm delighted to see Doris Roberts (our Hallmark Mrs. Miracle!) included as part of the cast for the movie Merry Kissmas. She is listed last, so I'm wondering if she may only have a small role. Whatever the case, it will be fun to see her again in a Christmas movie!

Please know I am in the process of getting more Movie Images and Details for ALL of these movies above - so please stay tuned!!!

  1. Aw, several of these sound SUPER cute. But then, I'm a totally Christmas movie nut so any new movies that premiere during the holidays is a kind of "guilty pleasure" treat. :)

  11. Anyone know the name of the movie where a man and a woman drive cross country to deliver a dog (snoops) to LA

  12. Loved them all. Also hope they do another Halloween movie because the story line You cast a spell on me beat all 4 of Hallmark Halloween movies. What would be great would be a sequel or that movie into a series. Also do at least one original movie or more a month I never watch ION except during those three months. Hooe to see more great holiday movies in a few months.

    1. That movie wasn't developed by Ion they just picked it up for distribution from Marvista. I don't think Ion has actually developed an original movie yet. They're usually just the distributor.
