‘The Christmas House 2’ Was Filmed in Canada

“The Christmas House 2” was filmed in British Columbia, Canada, including in Sidney and Victoria. Bennett shared this video below tagged in Victoria during filming in October.

Today in BC reported that part of the movie was filmed in Sidney in mid-September, including turning Beacon Avenue into a snow-filled winter landscape.

Buckley joked that there was so much Christmas in this movie, “we almost had to make it a trilogy.”

Bennett replied: “You’re my favorite TV brother I’ve ever had.”

Buckley joked that his favorite part of working with Bennett was the “constant bullying.”

Bennett asked fans on Twitter if they’re Team Brandon or Team Mike.

Here’s another behind-the-scenes photo that Bennett shared while they were filming in September.

He also shared a funny behind-the-scenes video of Lawrence.

They had a lot of fun on set, including this video he shared after Buckley lost a bet.

He asked fans which photo was most accurate from the set.

And here’s a post by the company that made special Christmas cookies for the movie.

The movie was originally called “The Christmas House 2: Handsome Christmas” during early filming.

Filming wrapped on October 3.
