Happiest Season's trailer has finally arrived to bring some festive joy into our lives.

The lesbian rom-com stars Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Davis as Abby and Harper as the couple prepare for Abby to meet Harper's parents for the first time at their big annual Christmas dinner.

That's enough pressure in itself, but Abby also plans to propose to her girlfriend during the occasion. The only problem is that Harper's family doesn't even know that she is gay, leading Abby to begin to question the girlfriend she thought she knew so well.

Happiest Season is skipping a cinema release in the US for a release on Hulu on November 25. It will be available to rent or buy in the UK the following day, due to the latest lockdown announcement.

Directed and co-written by Clea DuVall, Happiest Season also stars GLOW actress Alison Brie, Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza, Schitt's Creek's Dan Levy and Harley Quinn star Mary Holland, who co-wrote the script with DuVall.

"I think I've wished to see a gay Christmas rom com my whole life," Stewart previously explained.

"I'm so happy and proud of [writer/director] Clea [DuVall] for bringing this into the world. I love when holiday movie makes you long for an idea of home, but also examines how hilarious and hard reality at home can be sometimes," she added.

DuVall added: "I'm a huge fan of Christmas movies, but I had never seen my story represented. Happiest Season felt like a great opportunity to tell a universal story from a new perspective."

Happiest Season is released on Hulu on November 25. It will be available to rent or buy in the UK the following day.
