Coming Soon: The Mistle-Tones


Now that Halloween is over, we are officially in the midst of the winter holidays! In that vein, I’m excited to let all of you know about my latest project – I’ll be starring in an original Christmas musical on ABC Family called “The Mistle-Tones”! The movie premieres on Sunday, December 9th at 8pm ET, and I can’t wait for you guys to see it! It’s such a fun movie, and I had the best time making it. My fellow momista Tia Mowry is my co-star in this comedy, and the movie features both of us singing your fave Christmas songs. Plus there’s dancing, sparkles, and holiday cheer! And, my very own Mitzi makes her on-screen debut as my dog Vixen.

In “The Mistle-Tones,” Holly (played by Tia), is super excited to audition for the newly vacated spot in a legendary local Christmas group. Marci (played by yours truly), the group’s leader, gives the spot to her best friend instead of the super talended Holly, So, Holly sets out to create her own musical group and forms The Mistle-Tones. A Christmas Eve sing-off ensues… and you’ll have to watch the movie to find out what happens next.

For those of you who can’t wait another minute, here’s an exclusive first look at The Mistle-Tones:

In addition to the movie premiering in December, ABC Family is releasing a movie soundtrack on Sunday, November 18th. It’ll feature 9 songs sung by the cast (including moi), and will be available on iTunes. For anyone needing a little help getting into the holiday spirit, this is the soundtrack for you!

I had so much fun working on this movie, and hope that it brings some holiday spirit and joy to all of you.

What are some of your fave holiday songs?

    Congratulations on your new project, I remember you mentioning this last year (o how time flies). And boohoohoo, since being outside the USA I cannot watch the sneak preview via this link!!
    I am a complete nutter for Christmas and all the trimmings. The seasons crooners White Christmas and Let it Snow are on top of my list but as a girl who grew up in the Eighties, there is no Christmas without Wham’s Last Christmas (the pudding mix)!! Thank you for putting me in the right seasonal mode with this post (and a Christmas song in my head …)

    Wow! This looks so good and puts me in the mood for Christmas! Tori, you look beautiful and I love Tia and Tamera. Can’t wait to see it. I guess my favorite Christmas song is “Christmas in Dixie” since I am a southern girl…

  • Jordan Yaworski

    I am so proud of you, Tori! I’ve had this marked on my calendar for awhile, and I can’t wait to download the album on Sunday!
    My favorite Christmas songs are “Happy Xmas” by John Lennon, and “Silver Bells.”

  • Tracey Charles

    Congrats! Looking forward to watching! So exciting for Mitzi too, lol. I had a childhood dog named Mitzi. It’s neat to see that you’ve brought back the name from circa 1970s! Makes me smile. I gotta say, the dogs that bark jingle bells does make me laugh. 😉

  • Janice Sauter

    I love all the traditional Christmas songs, especially Der Bingle’s “White Christmas”. My new favourite holiday song is Pink Martini’s rendition of “Auld Lang Syne” (last song on their “Joy to the World” CD). It’s such a beautiful, up-tempo JOY-ful song, you just can’t help but smile when listening to it!
