Believe in Yourself: Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey is written and directed by David E. Talbert and he hopes everyone learns the lesson of the power of believing in yourself. “Jeronicus Jangle is a Faith journey; it is trying to believe in yourself and reconnect with what is inside of you. I wrote that character for me because you go through life a lot of times, and you lose that faith, and you stop believing in things. Thing have worked all along; they were just waiting for you to believe in them. I think that is a message for everyone; kids will get that as they get older.” I think it’s for us to pull that old book that you had tucked away in your hard drive that you were trying to write, but thought it was not good. But maybe it is good, plus.” ~ David E. Talbert
Be Yourself: Madalen Mills message to young girls is just to be yourself. “Journey, you know, loves all things stem; Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, which is a trait that is typically attributed to boys. … Young girls, you know be yourself whether you like Science, whether you like technology or even if you like princesses and I like to dress up and do makeup. Whatever you like to do, just go for it! Follow your passion with all your heart, and don’t let anything stop you, or anyone stop you.” ~ Madalen Mills
Look on the positive side: Kieron Dyer hopes kids who view this film will learn the positive side of a negative situation. “I hope what the audience takes away from seeing this film is the movie’s message of the movie…Which is the power of possibilities and the power of belief. I think my character is very optimistic and tries to see the positive side of a negative situation.” ~ Kieron Dyer
Believe in Second Chances: Lisa Davina Phillip believes no matter if you made a mistake in your past, you can change, heal, and become anew. “I hope people take away the idea of wonder and imagination is not just for children; it’s the adults as well, and the idea that you can have a second chance and you can change if you’ve made mistakes in the past, you shouldn’t let it determine your future. Because you can change and heal and becoming anew, and I hope that what people take away from seeing this film.” ~ Lisa Davina Phillip

JINGLE JANGLE: A CHRISTMAS JOURNEY
A musical adventure and a visual spectacle for the ages, Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey is a wholly fresh and spirited family holiday event. Set in the gloriously vibrant town of Cobbleton, the film follows legendary toymaker Jeronicus Jangle (Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker), whose fanciful inventions burst with whimsy and wonder. But when his trusted apprentice (Emmy winner Keegan-Michael Key) steals his most prized creation, it’s up to his equally bright and inventive granddaughter (newcomer Madalen Mills) — and a long-forgotten invention — to heal old wounds and reawaken the magic within. From the imagination of writer-director David E. Talbert and featuring original songs by John Legend, Philip Lawrence, Davy Nathan, and “This Day” performed by Usher and Kiana Ledé, Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey reminds us of the strength of family and the power of possibility.
