Nicki Minaj Is Starring In H&M’s Magical Holiday Film
Last week, Nicki Minaj teased her upcoming holiday campaign with H&M and now we’re getting more of a glimpse in the form of a magical film. Today, H&M revealed that their 2017 holiday campaign film will star Minaj as well as actor Jesse Williams, and also show off the brand’s festive fashions for the holiday.
The film, which is directed by Johan Renck, is a modern take on the classic fairytale which features a little girl who’s trying to save the holiday season from the evil brother of Santa Claus. In the parallel fantasy world of the film, Minaj plays the little girl’s mother as well as a fairy and Williams plays the girl’s father and a fairy, while the theme of the film is caring for one another.
In a press release for H&M, Minaj said, “I love the film’s overall empowering message. I love seeing this young girl become the champion that lives in all of us. There’s always magic in the air during the holidays.”
