From the mind of writer/director David E. Talbert, Jingle Jangle tells the story of Jeronicus Jangle (Forest Whitaker), a beloved toy maker who loses hope after a series of unfortunate events, including his trusted apprentice stealing his prized book of inventions. A few days before Christmas, Jeronicus’s estranged daughter Jessica (Anika Noni Rose) sends her own daughter and budding inventor Journey (Madalen Mills) to spend time with her grandfather. Over the course of a few days and misadventures, Journey fights past Jeronicus’s tough exterior and gets him to believe in magic—and himself—once again.
