Anna Kendrick searches for her brother Santa Claus in first trailer for Disney+ comedy Noelle

Oscar nominee Anna Kendrick teams up with Oscar winner Shirley MacLaine to find her brother Nick Kringle in the first trailer for Christmas comedy, Noelle.

In the long-delayed Disney+ flick - which finally starts streaming November 12 - the original Santa Claus has passed away leaving his merry legacy to his reluctant son.

But try as he might, Nick (Bill Hader) doesn't have the natural instincts to take on the role of Santa Claus and deliver presents to all the 'nice' children of the world.

When Noelle Kringle (Kendrick) suggests Nick 'get away for the weekend' so he doesn't have a 'nervous breakdown' - he goes missing for over a week.

Noelle volunteers to lead a rescue mission and enlists her childhood nanny Elf Polly (MacLaine) as well as her CG-animated pet Snow Cone, a 'hyperactive reindeer.'

Back in 2013, the 34-year-old triple threat belted the 85-year-old Hollywood legend's Broadway number It's Not Where You Start, It's Where You Finish during her Kennedy Center Honors.
