By Oz Online | Published on December 1, 2023

With film and production crews flocking to Georgia, many local destinations are now recognizable on the big screen. One of these movies, Charlie’s Christmas Wish, premiered on Starz in November after filming throughout Cherokee County. 

Written, directed, and produced by long-time Georgia filmmaker Sue Ann Taylor, the Christmas flick follows Sgt. Major John Frost who returns home for Christmas to find that his family has adopted Charlie, a little white puppy. Charlie befriends two homeless Vietnam veterans in dire need of support, leading Sgt. Frost to rally his family and local community around them for the Holiday Season. 

“We are thrilled that our holiday movie will be available to the 26.3 million Starz subscribers,” says Taylor. “Ultimately, we are trying to raise spirits and awareness of the ongoing issues of homeless veterans.” 

The majority of filming took place in Ellijay, Canton, and Ball Ground while a local business, Jill’s Cakes and Bakes, is also mentioned by name in the movie.
