Posted Fri Nov 8, 2013 at 06:00 AM PST by

The charming holiday film based on the popular novel by Turk Pipkin will arrive on Blu-ray in December.

In an early announcement to retailers, Lionsgate is preparing 'Angels Sing' for Blu-ray on December 10.

Starring Harry Connick, Jr. ('Dolphin Tale,' 'New In Town,' TV’s “American Idol”) Connie Britton (TV’s “Nashville,” TV’s “Friday Night Lights”), Chandler Canterbury ('The Host'), Fionnula Flanagan ('The Guard,' TV’s “Lost”) and GRAMMY®-winning recording artist Lyle Lovett, along with country music legend Willie Nelson and Oscar® nominee Kris Kristofferson (Best Music, Original Song Score, Songwriter 1984) Angels Sing reminds us that a little Christmas cheer can go a long way.

Harry Connick, Jr. stars as Michael Walker, who, as a child, wished every day was Christmas, until a tragic accident crushed his holiday spirit. Thirty years later Michael still can't muster any joy for Christmas despite encouragement from his playful wife (Britton) and well intentioned parents (Kristofferson and Flanagan). But when his young son (Canterbury) faces a tragedy, Michael needs to make amends with his past. A mysterious man named Nick (Nelson) gives Michael a gift that instills in him the courage to find the Christmas joy that he lost.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a lossless 5.1 soundtrack, and no supplements have been revealed for this release.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.99.
