The film is set to be directed by Tim Story, who is perhaps best known for helming the 2002 comedy Barbershop, before also going on to direct the two Fantastic Four films in the 2000s.

Alongside Story, Will Packer and John Jacobs will join as producers on the project, with Deadline noting that production is already underway in Atlanta, with the film set to release sometime later this holiday season on the Disney+ streaming service.

Dashing Through the Snow will tell the story of a divorced social worker in the Atlanta police department, who does not like Christmas at all due to a childhood memory involving the holiday. However, while out on a call on Christmas Eve, he not only gets on the bad side of a local politician but “meets a man who helps him understand the joy and magic of Christmas.”
