While Christmas movies have been airing around the clock on some sections of television, Netflix finally releases its pre-Thanksgiving holiday movie event with The Knight Before Christmas. The fantasy romantic comedy arrives after the streaming giant’s latest slate of Christmas fare, beginning earlier this month with Holiday in the Wild, Let It Snow, and the animated feature Klaus. Surely, this is the Knight we’ve all been waiting for.

The Knight Before Christmas stars Netflix’s new queen of Christmas Vanessa Hudgens as Brooke, a high school science teacher who’s, of course, a little unlucky when it comes to love. Despite being jaded about matters of the heart, she can’t help but fall for Sir Cole Christopher Frederick Lyons (Josh Whitehouse), a medieval English knight magically transported into the present day. What could go wrong for their romance other than a mixed-up timeline?
