If you’re missing Caitriona Balfe’s voice, check out Angela’s Christmas Wish on Netflix
It’s December, Outlander fans, and that means lots of Christmas specials are coming out. There’s a new one on Netflix that Caitriona Balfe has lent her voice to called Angela’s Christmas Wish.
This is not the first time that Caitriona has done voiceover work. She played Tavra in The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance series, also on Netflix. She voices the mom of Dorothy, a little girl who joins Angela and her brother on their adventure, in Angela’s Christmas Wish.
The special was created by Frank McCourt and written by Damien O’Connor and is a sequel to Angela’s Christmas. Other voices include Ruth Negga and Moe Dunford as Angela’s mother and father. Irish Film and TV Net tweeted that Angela’s Christmas Wish will be coming to RTE One in Ireland on Christmas Day.
Angela’s Christmas Wish is a great watch if you have kids or just like a heartwarming story
The story starts out in Limerick, Ireland in 1913. Young Angela goes with her family to the docks to bid goodbye to her father, who is leaving to work in Australia. She is too young and too caught up in her toy to really understand what is going on. Two years pass. It is Christmas Eve, and Angela is very excited about the Christmas surprise her mother is planning.
Despite the surprise, Angela’s mother seems preoccupied. Angela and her brothers have a talk and decide it’s because she misses their dad. So Angela and one of her brothers set off on an adventure to bring him home from Australia for Christmas.
There are some truly cute moments in this Christmas special. They find out that Australia is only four pages from Ireland in the atlas so it must not be more than an hour by train! If you’re a softie like me, you may be shedding a few tears by the end.
