As theGrio previously reported, “Candy Cane Lane” stars Murphy alongside Tracee Ellis Ross in what is described as a “holiday comedy adventure.” Set to “Magic” by Pilot, the final trailer takes viewers into the world of the Reginald Hudlin-helmed film, which follows Chris Carver (Murphy), who signs a deal with a mischievous elf, Pepper, in order to win a neighborhood Christmas decorating contest.

Chris soon realizes the deal is not all that it seemed, as the “12 Days of Christmas” springs to life in their town. Chris and his family then come together to, “race against the clock to break Pepper’s spell, battle deviously magical characters, and save Christmas for everyone.”

“We are the Carvers,” Ross says in the trailer. “We’ve got to catch an elf!” Check out the clip below:

The film is written and inspired by Kelly Younger and his own experiences on Candy Cane Lane in El Segundo, California. As theGrio previously reported, the film is also a return for Murphy and Hudlin, the film’s director. This marks their first collaboration together since their beloved 1992 film, “Boomerang.” Robin Thede, Chris Redd, Genneya Walton, Danielle Pinnock join Murphy and Ross in supporting roles.

“Candy Cane Lane” premieres Dec. 1, 2023, on Prime Video.
