Kristen Stewart’s latest movie is skipping theaters.
Happiest Season, a holiday movie starring Stewart and Terminator: Dark Fate’s Mackenzie Davis as a lesbian couple, will now debut on Hulu due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The movie will keep its Thanksgiving week release date, following in the footsteps of several movies skipping a theatrical release.
The movie, coming to Hulu Nov. 25, was co-written and directed by Veep actress Clea DuVall.
“I am beyond grateful to Hulu for providing an incredible home for Happiest Season, and I’ll forever cherish my journey with Sony Pictures who felt just as strongly as I did about the value of bringing the first major LGBTQ+ holiday rom-com to audiences,” said DuVall in a statement. “I’m hopeful that this universal story, told through a unique lens, will join the long list of holiday classics that continue to bring all of us so much joy and happiness.”
Happiest Season follows Abby (Stewart) and Harper (Davis), a same-sex couple who are serious enough that Abby plans to propose to Harper during her family’s annual Christmas dinner — only to find out Harper hasn’t yet come out to her conservative parents.
The movie also stars Mary Steenburgen, Victor Garber, Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza, Dan Levy—and the film’s co-writer (and DuVall’s fellow Veep costar) Mary Holland.
