As cinemas continue to shutter in the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic, with Hulu securing the U.S. rights, plans for a big screen release have been cancelled but obviously you can still watch Hulu in the UK as well.
Stewart plays a character named Abby, directed by Clea DuVall, who plans to propose to her girlfriend Harper at her annual Christmas dinner for her family, before she learns that the conservative family of her lover doesn’t know that Harper is gay.

Happiest Season will release on Hulu on 25 November, it is the same date the film was slated for a theatrical release.
“This holiday season — more than any other — we could all use a little happiness. It was essential to Sony Pictures and to the filmmakers that Clea’s marvelous and fresh holiday-themed romantic comedy come out when the lights are on the trees,” Nicole Brown, President of TriStar Pictures, said. “We are excited that Hulu is geared up to make this happen in the U.S. and grateful that they love the movie as much as we do.”
With Alison Brie, Mary Holland, Aubrey Plaza, Dan Levy, Victor Garber and Mary Steenburgen also starring, Mackenzie Davis plays Harper. Alongside Holland, DuVall co-wrote the holiday film.
Sony Pictures and eOne co-financed the film, and they hold distribution rights outside of the U.S., which will be agreed at a later date.
Fans are super excited for the preview:

The Twilight actress stars as a character named Abby, who heads home with her girlfriend Harper, portrayed by Mackenzie Davis, for Christmas dinner. Abby has great plans to propose to Harper at the family dinner, but when she learns Harper has not yet come out to her conservative family, she comes to a crossroad.
Along with the Happiest Season, after playing other real-life figures such as Jean Seberg and Bridget Sullivan from the Lizzie Borden murders, Stewart is about to take on perhaps her most famous role!
