Netflix has been investing heavily over the past few years in its Christmas content with titles like The Christmas Chronicles, A Christmas Prince, and Klaus being the biggest examples of these efforts. In May 2021, Netflix announced that Lindsay Lohan will be appearing in her own Christmas movie which appears to be called Christmas in Wonderland that started filming in November 2021.
First announced over the summer, Lindsay Lohan would be starring in a brand new untitled Christmas movie.
The Tweet by Netflix which scored over 40,000 likes said the following:
“Lindsay Lohan will star in a new romantic comedy about a newly engaged and spoiled hotel heiress who finds herself in the care of a handsome, blue-collar lodge owner and his precocious daughter after getting total amnesia in a skiing accident”
BIFA winner Janeen Damian (A Christmas Waltz, Hot Tamale) will direct the movie which will be written by Damian, her husband and writing partner Michael Damian as well as scribes Jeff Bonnett (Heroes, Love by the Book) and Ron Oliver (Operation Christmas, Harvest Moon).
Brad Krevoy of MPCA (A Christmas Prince, Operation Christmas Drop) and Michael Damian of Riviera Films will produce. Amanda Philips and Eric Jarboe will be the executive producers. Here’s everything else we know about the movie:
What is the plot of Christmas in Wonderland?
The plot was included in the Tweet above but addition production listings also provide a bit more context:

Who will star in Lindsay Lohan’s Christmas movie?
Of course, Lindsay Lohan will be fronting the cast. The child star has had a rollercoaster career over the years most known for movies such as The Parent Trap and Mean Girls.
Also starring in the movie will be Chord Overstreet who is known for his role on Glee where he played Sam Evans.
George Young (Malignant), Jack Wagner (The Bold and the Beautiful), Sean Dillingham (Yellowstone), and Olivia Perez (In The Heights) are also listed to star.
When will filming take place for Christmas in Wonderland?
Production was penciled to begin in November 2021 starting on November 8th and running for over two months with the scheduled wrap planned for December 15th. The shoot will take place in Salt Lake City, Utah. That was seemingly confirmed with the release of the above screenshot.
Of course, there’s plenty to look forward to this Christmas with Netflix’s slate being headlined by the likes of The Princess Switch 3, Robin Robin and A Castle for Christmas.
With these production dates, we can almost certainly expect the Lindsay Lohan Christmas movie to arrive in 2022 (although it has been known for Netflix to sit on movies for longer).
