Her restaurant just hasn't received the kind of attention that it takes to survive, especially with Christmas on the way. Wise enjoys the sense of fun that fantasy Christmas movies bring to the genre—they allow him to think outside the box.
He must have succeeded: BET signed him for five more Christmas movies over the next two years. The greater Vancouver area, where productions receive tax credits for shooting outside the urban studio zone, is Christmas Movie Central. So someone might scoop them up and keep them for a long time.

The Christmas Prince sequel, meanwhile, filmed its exterior scenes at Peles Castle , which was the summer residence of King Michael I, while the interiors were primarily shot at the Cotroceni Palace Museum , which is attached to the official residence of the President of Romania. Other locations included Snagov Palace, which was also used for most of the palace interior scenes in Christmas at the Palace , and Bragadiru Palace, which, like Peles, may look familiar to fans of the Hallmark movie A Princess for Christmas starring a pre- Outlander Sam Heughan.
If his exterior work at Peles Castle was the most fun—it made the busloads of children visiting in the middle of summer very happy—his trickiest set was the skating rink for Christmas at the Palace. And that is the objective, after all. Celebrity Style.
