The Christmas In Evergreen Town started in 2017, and now it has completed four years of merry Christmas! Yes, the series has completed four films! As we move ahead, we will talk about the plot of every movie and explain its filming locations. The Hallmark Channel is known to make the most Christmas films. They are films that stream only on television networks (Hallmark Channel.) To date, it has made 60 Christmas films. It also focuses on other holiday themes like Valentine’s and Summer. Essentially, Hallmark films are all about romance and drama. They have extended the two genres to a whole new level.
Hallmark’s Christmas In Evergreen’s first film got released in 2017. Directed by Alex Zamm, the film got situated in the fictional town of Evergreen. Evergreen is the hometown of magic, beauty, and love. After all, Christmas is the most beautiful and happy time of the year. The town has a magic globe, where people make wishes. Ashley Williams is the female protagonist, but for me, Teddy Sears takes the nod! His charm keeps the magic of the film going till the end. Much was expected from Ashley Williams being the star actor. But she tried too hard to make her role look genuine and noteworthy. The other supporting cast was pretty average otherwise, compared to these two.
Produced by Harvey Kahn, Christmas in Evergreen has a running one hour and twenty-four mins. Kudos to the production house because the filming locations were pretty impressive, giving it a feeling of joyous and magical Christmas. The soundtracks by James Jandrisch have the nostalgic feel of Christmas! Altogether the joy of Christmas is captured well. Let’s dive into the filming locations of Christmas in Evergreen!
