David E. Talbert is the director of the first ever live-action musical on Netflix, Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey. When I saw that Talbert was tackling this project, I knew we were in good hands. He’s been a brilliant writer, director and producer for the American theater for nearly 30 years. And now, he’s really taking the world by storm, with this blockbuster of a film.
In our chat, you’ll hear him talk about how and when this whole film started to become a reality, how he was inspired as a little boy, to see something different on screen during the holiday season.
We also dive into why this film is so vital to be seen by all people, no matter what you look like.
