Crackle, Sony's free streaming service, has shared the trailer for the highly-anticipated, holiday-themed installment of the Emmy(R)-nominated "SuperMansion." The original special, SUPERMANSION: WAR ON CHRISTMAS debuts on Thursday, December 8 with voiceover stars Bryan Cranston ("Breaking Bad"), Emmy(R) Award-winner Keegan-Michael Key ("Key & Peele"), and Seth Green ("Family Guy") are joined by guest stars Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory") and Gary Anthony Williams (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows).

"SuperMansion: War On Christmas" focuses on a dysfunctional group of self-righteous superheroes, The League of Freedom, who can't agree on anything, but must band together to save Christmas when an interstellar imp, Mr. Skibumpers (Jim Parsons), unleashes a real-life Santa Claus (Gary Anthony Williams) who experiences an existential crisis and runs amok. Ultimately, the team comes to understand that their differences of opinion are what the holiday spirit is all about.

Also returning to the seasonal special are voiceover stars Jillian Bell (22 Jump Street), Anton Yelchin (Star Trek), Dan Stevens ("Downton Abbey"), Heidi Gardner (The Groundlings), Tucker Gilmore (Frozen), and Zeb Wells ("Robot Chicken").
