WATCH: Kristen Stewart and Dan Levy star in Happiest Season trailer

The film, which is released on Hulu on 25 November, stars Twilight actress Kristen as Abby and Mackenzie Davis as Harper, a young lesbian couple who are in the throes of early romance but there's one little issue – Harper hasn't come out to her family yet.

Dan Levy and Kristen Stewart star in Happiest Season

Happiest Season's trailer sees Abby and Harper navigate their relationship while trying to hide it from Harper's family. "I am scared that if I tell them who I really am, I will lose them... I am not hiding you, I am hiding me," she says in the clip.

Schitt's Creek fans will be thrilled as Dan Levy also stars in the Christmas movie providing witty one-liners as Abby's friend John, offering support to his friend who feels pushed aside by the love of her life.
