Netflix 'Elves': 5 things you didn't know about Ann Eleonora Jorgensen and the cast
The six-part Danish series also stars Peder Pedersen, Lila Nobel and Rasmus Hammerich in pivotal roles
The holiday season is just around the corner and this time around, Netflix is doing everything to eliminate the competition by coming out with several projects revolving around Christmas. The country sees a huge influx of Christmas movies on Hallmark and Lifetime, which specifically dominates the holiday season every single year. But, Netflix is thinking of giving them a fight this time around.
However, Netflix is doing it a bit differently. The streaming platform is set to come out with a horror series revolving around Christmas, titled ‘Elves’. The Danish series revolves around a family getting together for a vacation to a remote place. As soon as they reach there, they get to know that the place is being run by mysterious creatures. Things go haywire, when the young girl from the family takes one of the baby elves and the older Elves start killing humans living there. The upcoming foreign-language series seems to be a worthy addition to Netflix’s catalog which already has blockbuster shows like ‘Money Heist’, ‘Post Mortem: No one dies in Skarnes’, and ‘Biohackers’. Apart from having an intriguing premise, the show also features a stellar cast as well. Let’s take a look at the cast.
