While Yeoh’s role has yet to be revealed, we do know that “Last Christmas,” which is set to hit theaters Nov. 15, 2019, will feature Golding opposite Emilia Clarke.

“Last Christmas” takes its title from the Christmas song of the same name written by George Michael, whose hits and unreleased material will be used throughout the film for a touch of holiday magic.
