Candy Cane Lane | Anjelah Johnson-Reyes Reflects on Meeting Eddie Murphy and Christmas

Candy Cane Lane is certainly a Christmas miracle for Amazon MGM Studios.

In the first three days since its release last Friday, the film premiered as the most-watched studio worldwide on Prime Video.

Funny woman Anjelah Johnson-Reyes was part of the cast that brought the humor and smiles to our faces.

Eddie Murphy leads the film with Tracee Ellis Ross, Jillian Bell, Thaddeus J. Mixson, Ken Marino, Nick Offerman, Robin Thede, Chris Redd, Genneya Walton, Madison Thomas, Lombardo Boyar, D.C. Young Fly, Danielle Pinnock, Timothy Simons, Riki Lindhome, and Stephen Tobolowsky. Reginald Hudlin directed the movie from the screenplay by Kelly Younger.

Here is the official synopsis:

Eddie Murphy stars in this holiday comedy adventure about a man on a mission to win his neighborhood’s annual Christmas home decoration contest. After Chris (Eddie Murphy) inadvertently makes a deal with a mischievous elf named Pepper (Jillian Bell) to better his chances of winning, she casts a magic spell that brings the 12 Days of Christmas to life and wreaks havoc on the whole town. At the risk of ruining the holidays for his family, Chris, his wife Carol (Tracee Ellis Ross), and their three children must race against the clock to break Pepper’s spell, battle deviously magical characters, and save Christmas for everyone.
