  1. Awesome list of Christmas movies! It's great to see a few new releases upcoming for this year already announced. Besides those I'll probably get the Garfield DVD, Yes Virginia, Brady Bunch, Operation Christmas, Broadcasting Christmas, A December Bride, Finding Father Christmas, Every Christmas Has A Story, Christmas Cookies, and so on! I had no idea how many favorites I had from last year alone.

    By the way, I would still love to see Matchmaker Santa and Window Wonderland on DVD. Maybe those who can make that happen will see this. Thanks Net for providing this list.

    1. Oh, you're welcome! As you know, I love Christmas!

      And, I also LOVE your "wish list" of Christmas movies, Mary! I love all of those, too, plus I would love to see "Matchmaker Santa" and "Window Wonderland" on DVD someday! Excellent picks!

  2. I've got my eye on the two ION movies I missed at Christmas.

    1. The movie "A Cinderella Christmas" with Peter Porte ("Love at the Shore") is especially cute! My family and I really enjoyed it. Very sweet, with a Hallmark-esque feel and Happy Ending!

      Delete
  3. I'm still waiting on Window Wonderland. It was one of my favorites from the 2013 season. Fingers crossed they finally release it this year. There were also so many good ones from last Christmas I'm hoping they'll release like Love You Like Christmas, My Christmas Love, Sleigh Bells Ring and The Christmas List just to name a few. On another note, I did notice over the weekend that my two favorite Hallmark Fall Harvest movies will be available to buy later this month on Amazon Video...Harvest Moon and October Kiss. Finally!! - Melissa

    1. Oh yes, "Window Wonderland" seems to be on nearly everyone's most wanted on DVD list! It's such a good one! I love it, too!

      And, yes, I agree... it's great to see Harvest Moon and October Kiss - finally on Amazon Video! Typically, that means the DVDs are coming, too!!! Hope so!!!

      Thank you for commenting, Melissa! Blessings to you, Net :)

  5. Hi Net, Thanks for this list - it is nice to have all of the upcoming releases in one place. Lots of re-releases or repackagings, but that's okay. I wish I understood why Hallmark decides to release a few Christmas movies in January, but at lease they are getting released at some point.

    ReplyDelete

    1. You're welcome, Mark! Glad you enjoyed the list of Christmas movies! Since Hallmark has 33 Christmas movies coming this year, I'm hoping we will hear of even more DVD releases - coming soon, at least!

      I, too, think it would be much better to release them before Christmas! I can imagine Santa would snatch up lots of Hallmark Christmas movie DVDs and put them in our stockings - if he could!

      Perhaps, they think come January we are all missing Christmas movies on TV so much that we will purchase the DVDs to fill that void. It's a thought, anyway.

      Or, maybe... they just won't be manufactured and ready to purchase until then. Who knows?

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts! Blessings to you, Net

  8. I'm glad to know that Finding Father Christmas will have a sequel this Christmas. Just be aware that the Hanna Barbera DVD doesn't have the triple feature listed in the description, nor does it show the back. Ashish from Amazon Customer Service said they won't list the details until it's released. I told them then they won't get anyone to pre-order it, because who wants to buy something when they don't know what they are getting. The DVD that is another triple feature shows the back of the DVD and has Elf, A Miser Brothers Christmas, and a year without a Santa Claus.

    ReplyDelete

    1. That is interesting, Cathie. I checked into this and discovered the cartoons on the Hanna-Barbera Holiday Triple Feature DVD are:

      •A Flintstones Christmas Carol- With just one shopping day until Christmas, Fred has completely forgotten to buy any gifts- he's even left Pebbles stranded at Cave Care Center! But Wilma and some familiar ghosts help Fred remember the true meaning of the season. Join the entire Flintstones gang in this hilarious stone-age version of the magical holiday classic.

      •Yogi Bear's All- Star Comedy Christmas Caper- Catch the holiday spirit with Yogi, Boo-Boo, Snagglepuss and Quick Draw McGraw as they venture into the big city on one wild Christmas adventure after another! The Flintstones, Huckleberry Hound, Augie Doggie and more also join in, making this a Christmas caper full of animated favorites for the whole hungry family.

      •The Smurfs Holiday Celebration- Deck the halls with the Smurfs in these charming animated specials. Watch the Sassette Smurf discover the season, Gargamel plots to ruin Christmas and, despite having no Christmas decorations or feast, the Smurfs still have a smurfy song in their hearts. This wacky collection is the smurfiest gift of the season.

      Hope this information is helpful to you. They all sound extra cute!

      By the way... I'm also looking forward to the continuing story of "Finding Father Christmas." Loved Erin Krakow and Niall Matter together last year, and I'm sure they will great again this year, too!!!

      Thank you for sharing, Cathie!!! Blessings, Net

  9. Thank you so much for this list! I am excited to add to my collection. A little off topic, but would you know when or if the New Gilmore Girls will comeout on DVD?

    1. Oh, you're welcome! I love finding all the Christmas movie treasures each year and sharing them!

      As far as Gilmore Girls goes... I don't know much about the series, but is this maybe what you are referring to:
      Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life: Season 1.

  12. Disney also has Mickey Mouse Merry & Scary coming out September 26. It's not available for pre-order on Amazon, because they don't do Disney film pre-orders anymore, but you can pre-order on Wal-Mart or Target site, or wait until after release date and Amazon should have it available.

    It includes animated specials for both Halloween (Mickey Mouse: The Scariest Story Ever) and Christmas (Mickey Mouse: Duck the Halls). My family especially adored Duck the Halls last year, and the Halloween special is new for 2017 and will air on the Disney Channel at some point in October.

    The original DVD release date was August 29, but it was pushed back for some reason. Maybe not to air before the show was on TV?

  13. Ooh, thanks for sharing the news! I'm happy to see several of my favorites from last year. I'll definitely be getting "Operation Christmas," "Finding Father Christmas," and "Christmas Cookies." Also happy to see Mr. Miracle is finally being released.

    I will add my "vote" for a "Window Wonderland" DVD. The other one I would most like to have on DVD is "The Christmas Shepherd," one of my all-time favorites. Also "Dashing Through the Snow" and "On the Twelfth Day of Christmas." And of course a whole lot more from last year, like "Love Always, Santa," "The Sound of Christmas," "My Christmas Love," "A Nutcracker Christmas," and I could go on and on! :)

    I can't believe there are only 51 days left before new Christmas movies!! Yippee!!! :)

    1. Thank you for sharing, Amy! (Didn't see a duplicate comment. Only one! So... thank goodness at least one went through- because I always love hearing from you!)

      I second all the movie picks you selected! It's getting tougher and tougher to choose favorites every year and with the addition of all the great ones on HMM, too, it's nearly impossible!

      I agree -- If only they would release "Window Wonderland" on DVD! I think I've mentioned maybe once or twice (HA!) that it's also on my most wanted list, too! I'm so glad we all love it - maybe one day they will hear us and release it!!!

      Thank so much for sharing in the fun!!! :)

    1. So agree, Jill! I taped it off TV years ago, but hopefully this new release will have a much better, crisper picture!!! I can already hear their theme song playing in my head!!! :)

      Who was bringing up three very lovely girls..."

  15. I wish they would put out a dvd of A Gift Wrapped Christmas with Travis Milne. The story is different enough to make it heartwarming, but not boring. He's not bad looking either. Thank you so much for your list.

    Replies
    1. Oh my goodness... I 100% agree!!! I absolutely loved the movie "A Gift Wrapped Christmas" in 2015 on Lifetime! Travis Milne (AKA Charlie Baker!), as you mentioned, was spectacular in it and so was Meredith Hagner, who starred in Hallmark Channel's "My Christmas Love" last year. I loved every minute of it and would love to see it on DVD, too!!! Thank you so much for mentioning it!!! :)

    1. Yes, I saw that, too! It looks so cute! I added the DVD above and the trailer to it in the Upcoming Christmas Movie post! Plus, I also added a trailer for Olaf's Frozen Adventure there, as well. It said it was new, but it looked the same as the one I had seen before. Anyway, it still looks like another super fun story in the "Frozen" series!!!

      Thanks for sharing SKP! Blessings, Net :)

  20. Like many of you, I too am waiting for Matchmaker Santa and Window Wonderland to come out on dvd. Would also like to see Finding Christmas, Thanksgiving House, 12 Gifts of Christmas, Dashing through the snow, Christmas in Homestead, Love Always, Santa, Christmas to Remember, My Christmas Love, A dream of Christmas, Sleigh Bells Ring and The Twelfth Day of Christmas. I'd buy all of these if they put them on dvd as I am sure many others would too. And you are right Net. They would make great stocking stuffers except I'd need an awful big stocking for all of these. Here's hoping. RG

    1. Oh, that is wonderful, Sly! Gosh, I think I may have it recorded somewhere on Video -in the archives! I was fairly young when it aired the first time, but I remember loving it very much! And, Richard Thomas is truly wonderful and inspiring as the father, and the little girl who portrays Virginia is something truly special! "Yes, Virginia there is a Santa Claus" is truly a treasure! I'm so glad they finally decided to release it on DVD!

      Thank you for sharing, Sly! I'm so happy I could share this movie with you!

  22. Hi Net, FYI - the new 70th anniversary edition of Miracle on 34th Street unfortunately does not have any new extras - just the ones (although good ones) from the previous editions.

    1. Thank you, Mark, for sharing. I kind of wondered, due to the age of the movie, if it would be possible to find anything extra on it. It's such a wonderful classic and always will be!

      Appreciate you looking into that and letting us know!

  23. Just saw on Amazon that Love Locks starring Jerry O'Donnell will be available on January 2nd. There is no picture showing but is it true... Hallmark Hall of Fame movie is coming out to DVD

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes! In fact, I just added the DVD for "Love Locks" yesterday to the Hallmark Movies on DVD - from A to Z list!

      It is a bit later for this one to come out. Usually, in the past, they had always released the DVDs shortly after the Hallmark Hall of Fame movies aired on TV, but it's good to see they are keeping up the tradition.

      Thanks so much for sharing!
      Blessings, Net :)

  24. Thank you for releasing December Bride I just received it!Do you think you could release some movies With Victor Webster Like Loves Blooms or Summer Villa or his new one just loved Harvest Wedding. Thank You

    1. I agree... it would be wonderful to have Victor Webster's Hallmark movies "Love Blossoms" or "Summer Villa" on DVD! Did you see his movie Magic Stocking above? It is available on DVD! Such a sweet movie, too!

      Delete
  25. I am so excited about many of the movies that are being released on DVD this year like Finding Father Christmas, Magic Stocking, and Operation Christmas. I keep hoping though that they will release One Starry Christmas, Matchmaker Santa, Farewell Mr. Kringle, Love Always,Santa, and On The Twelfth Day Of Christmas. You would think with Hallmark making more Christmas movies every year that they would increase the number of DVD releases especially some of the older movies.That would be a nice Christmas gift. Thank you so much Net for keeping us informed like you do.
    Thanks so much
    Chuck

  26. A little Christmas surprise for me.....found "My Christmas Dream," "Journey Back to Christmas," and "A Heavenly Chrisrmas" at my local Walmart yesterday! What a neat Christmas present that was!! I love all Hallmark movies and, like all of you, would buy 'em all (if only they were all released on DVD!)!

  27. Some of my Christmas requests Santa brought early this year. I recently added to my collection "December Bride, Dashing through the Snow, A Christmas to Remember, and Every Christmas has a story. I quess Santa brought them early as he knew I couldn't find a big enough stocking to hold them all. Thanks Hallmark. Keep the movies coming. Merry Christmas to all a little early and God bless. Thank you Net for this wonderful and enjoyable website. RG
