“Noelle” takes a different look on the classic Santa story as it revolves around his daughter, Noelle, who is played by Anna Kendrick. In the movie, Noelle is forced to take over her father’s job and deliver presents to children all over the world. Not only can the movie be viewed in cinema, but it can also be viewed on the Disney Plus app.
