Plot summary

What is Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey" movie plot summary.

Jeronicus Jangle (Forest Whitaker) - an inventor, toymaker, and owner of Jangles and Things - receives the final component to his latest invention that he believes will change his and his family's lives forever. This component helps create Don Juan Diego (Ricky Martin), a sentient matador doll. Jeronicus leaves to celebrate, leaving Diego and the store under the care of his apprentice Gustafson (Keegan-Michael Key). Diego is distraught to learn that he will be mass-produced, thus robbing him of his uniqueness. He manages to convince Gustafson, an aspiring inventor himself, to get back at Jeronicus by taking Diego and his book of inventions.
Without proof of Gustafson's actions to show to the police, Jangles and Things falls into financial hardship while Gustafson starts his own factory. After the death of his wife Joanne (Sharon Rose), Jeronicus grows distant from his daughter, Jessica (Anika Noni Rose), who moves away.
30 years later, Jangles and Things is a failing pawnbroker shop and Jeronicus has completely lost his creative spark. He is visited by postwoman Ms. Johnston (Lisa Davina Phillip) who is sympathetic to his plight and smitten with him as she tries to lift his spirits. Jeronicus is visited by banker Mr. Delacroix (Hugh Bonneville) who tells him to pay his debts or produce a new invention to show to the bank by Christmas or lose his shop.
Meanwhile, it is revealed that Jessica now has a daughter named Journey (Madalen Mills) who shares Jeronicus' passion for inventing. A letter arrives for Jessica from Jeronicus, and Jessica sends Journey to stay with him until Christmas. Upon arriving, Jeronicus seems uninterested in her, though agrees to let her stay. Gustafson, now a famous toy tycoon, has exhausted all inventions from Jeronicus' book. At a party, Gustafson unveils a toy that he has since been trying to perfect called the Twirly Whirly, though it malfunctions and attacks one of the guests. Diego convinces Gustafson to steal another invention of Jeronicus'.
