Polaha told fans this movie would blow their minds and that it was basically Hallmark 2.0.
As we previously reported, Jodie Sweetin is directing a sequel to a Candace Cameron Bure film. But it seems, at least according to the latest updates, that this is more of an unofficial sequel as Bure’s film hasn’t been screened.

Jack Wagner is currently filming for When Calls the Heart, but it looks like he’s also starring in a Christmas movie called A Big Fat Family Christmas. Shannon Chan-Kent, Shannon Kook and Tia Carrere also star. The film will air Dec. 2 on Hallmark, Entertainment Weekly reported.

Fans will be thrilled to learn that Ryan Paevey will star alongside Brooke D’Orsay in this year’s “A Fabled Holiday,” which premieres December 3 on Hallmark, Entertainment Weekly reported.
The synopsis reads, “Talia and her childhood best friend, Anderson, meet unexpectedly in an oddly familiar-looking town filled with Christmas cheer that restores its visitors when they need it most.”
