Sometimes you’ve just gotta have faith.

Movie lovers and fans of the late singer and songwriter George Michael out there, you’ll be pleased to know that there’s an upcoming movie titled Last Christmas (2019, Feig) inspired by Wham!’s 1984 hit song of the same name. 

This holiday love storyfollows the life of Kate (played by Emilia Clarke), a young woman who once dreamed of becoming a singer but life happened, so now Kate’s working instead as Santa’s elf at a novelty shop in London. There, she meets Tom (Henry Golding), a kind and optimistic man who helps Kate rediscover her cheer. Would the two be able to find love this Christmas? I guess we’ll have to wait for the answer until Last Christmas’ debut in theaters on November 8.      

The romantic comedy film also stars Michelle Yeoh, Patti LuPone, and Emma Thompson who co-wrote the script with Bryony Kimmings.

Last Christmas features George Michael’s and Wham!’s greatest hits like Faith (1987), Waiting For That Day (1990), One More Try (1987), Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go (1984), and Heal The Pain (1990) to name a few. Of course, the film’s album includes the title track as well as a previously unreleased and never been heard before song called “This is How (We Want You To Get High).” According to Paul Feig, the movie’s director, the new song was taken from the album that George Michael was working on before he passed away on Christmas Day in 2016. Feig described the new song to BBC News as: “a very celebratory song, I would dare say.” He added, “And we were able to play the entire song, which is almost six minutes long, in the film.”

Happy viewing!
