And we honestly can't wait to see what it will bring us.

Now, we've all known and loved Kristen Stewart for quite some time.

Kristen first emerged in Hollywood back in 2004 when she was just fourteen. She starred in the children's action-comedy Catch That Kid (2004), opposite Max Thieriot and Corbin Bleu.

As Kristen grew up through her teens, she starred in more and more small movies...

Such as in the 2005 fantasy-adventure film Zathura: A Space Adventure and in the 2007 supernatural-thriller, The Messengers.

But let's face it...

The minute Stephenie Meyer's vampire romance novel Twilight was created into a movie franchise, everyone in the world knew who Kristen Stewart was.

Starring alongside Robert Pattison, Kristen played the leading role of Bella Swan...

And since the first movie's release in 2008, fans all around the world were captivated by the dangerous love story between Bella and Edward, the dreamy yet blood-thirsty vampire.

Bella was also torn between Jacob the werewolf, who was played by Taylor Lautner...

And throughout all of the 5 Twilight movies, fans were obsessed with Bella's love life.

Fans were also very jealous of Kristen at the time...

Because who wouldn't be if they had Robert Pattison and Taylor Lautner fighting over them?

Despite a lot of criticism at the beginning of the Twilight saga...

Kristen won numerous awards for her role in the movies and there's no doubting how it catapulted her to fame.

When Twilight came to an end in 2012, Kristen went on to pursue some more serious roles...

Including in Snow White and the Huntsman in 2012, and Clouds of Sils Maria in 2014.

Last year, Kristen filmed and starred in the remake of Charlie's Angels...

And she has taken part in a lot of high-profile modeling and fashion shows... not to mention her awesome hairstyles over the last few years!

But the main thing that gets everyone talking about?

Kristen's love life and sexuality, of course.

It was highly publicized when Kristen was dating co-star Robert Pattison during the filming of Twilight...

But when they split up after she was photographed having an affair with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, Kristen's love life was placed even more under the spotlight.

In 2013, just months after breaking up with Robert for good, Kristen started dating visual effects producer Alicia Cargile.

Speaking with The Guardian about her sexuality, she stated that she was bisexual: "You're not confused if you're bisexual. It's not confusing at all. For me, it's quite the opposite."

But then, Kristen admitted that she was gay.

The actress took to the stage as host of Saturday Night Live in 2017, and as part of her hilarious Trump takedown, she casually mentioned to the audience she was gay. "I’ve been talking about it for a really long time! I’ve lived pretty openly. I guess because it was simple and straightforward. Just — 'I’m so gay, dude'... In that moment, to make it normal and cool and completely unashamed? It felt really cool."

Since she came out, Kristen has seemed happier than ever...

And even though her relationship with Alicia didn't work out, she's currently dating screenwriter Dylan Meyer.

Kristen is clearly very proud to be out, living and enjoying life as her true self...

And her most recent Hollywood project is a big reflection of that.

It has just been announced that Kristen is set to star in a brand-new queer holiday movie...

And fans are excited as hell, to say the least!

For many, this is a literal dream come true...

And it's about time we have a holiday romantic movie that involves a gay couple, right?

Fans are keen to see how Kristen will take on the role...

But the majority are just excited to majorly crush on Kristen throughout the entire thing!

The movie, that will be exclusive to Hulu, will be called Happiest Season...

And the romantic comedy will follow Kristen's character, Abby, as she travels to her girlfriend's family home for Christmas. Mackenzie Davis will be playing her girlfriend, Harper.

But when Abby arrives at Harper's parent's home...

She soon realizes that Harper is yet to come out to her family, leaving the couple with a lot of working to do on their relationship.

The movie will also feature several more famous faces...

Including Dan Levy from Schitt's Creek and Aubrey Plaza.

Writing and directing the movie is Clea DuVall, and speaking in a press release, she said:

"I am beyond grateful to Hulu for providing an incredible home for Happiest Season, and I’ll forever cherish my journey with Sony Pictures, who felt just as strongly as I did about the value of bringing the first major LGBTQ+ holiday rom-com to audiences."

She continued:

"I’m hopeful that this universal story, told through a unique lens, will join the long list of holiday classics that continue to bring all of us so much joy and happiness."

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Kristen spoke of her excitement over the movie:

"I grew up watching and loving conventional movies like this. Seeing [marginalized] people loving each other in the middle of something that's so standardized was really exhilarating and freeing. There's a lack of confusion and generalization Clea brings [as a queer woman]. I want people to see that two girls in love is just so fun."

Happiest Season will be available to stream on Hulu on November 25th...
