Netflix Has A Christmas Movie Universe So Prepare To Get Your Santa Sleuthing On For Crossovers
We love a good movie crossover – lest we forget that one time the Wild Thornberrys met the Rugrats, or when Easy A’s Olive Penderghast was to be picked up at the airport in Friends With Benefits.
How about the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Or Disney?
Well, here’s a new one to add to your list: the Netflix Holiday Movie Universe.
Call it a Christmas miracle (or good cross-branding) ‘cuz Netflix has stealthily linked together their holiday films and we didn’t even know about it!
While the links are mainly just other Christmas movies appearing on TVs in the films, we’re still impressed with the forethought.
Welcome to Netflix’s Holiday Movie Universe, an interconnected world of eight films (and counting) where anyone could become a princess and your soulmate may be hiding in plain sight — or the past!
Here’s actually how these holiday faves became so entwined... pic.twitter.com/5uNjEknHac

As you can see in their detective diagram, six festive flicks are all in the one universe.
But the big questions on my lips are how does Vanessa Hudgens exist three times over in this one world? And will there be a link to the ultimate Christmas movie, Die Hard?
Two more films are set to join the realm in 2020 with a Princess Switch sequel called Switched Again, and Operation Christmas Drop.
Now it’s time to go back and watch these six films to see where they intersect. How good is a festive Easter Egg!
