Seasonal special The Velveteen Rabbit heads to Apple TV this month, and the trailer for the show has landed.
Possibly the most anticipated holiday special landing on Apple TV this year is Ted Lasso star Hannah Waddingham’s Home For Christmas, a specially recorded concert that sees the long time West End star joined by a series of guests to sing some seasonal songs. It premieres on the 22nd November.
Dropping on the streaming service the same day is The Velveteen Rabbit. You might like to watch that as well, especially if you’re familiar with the original children’s book, written by Margery Williams, on which it’s based.
