ARTHUR CHRISTMAS – 12 Days of Christmas Countdown
This is a fairly new Christmas movie being that it just came out last year. Arthur Christmas was so good when I first saw it, I had to include it on this list. Arthur is one of two sons to the current Santa Clause but he is not the son in line to take over as Santa. He has such a good heart and genuinely loves Christmas with his whole heart. His older brother Steve is the one who has revolutionized the way Santa delivers presents. Rather than riding in a sleigh with eight tiny reindeer, he has a space ship of sorts that goes hundreds of miles per hour. It is packed with thousands of elf’s who are the actual ones delivering most of the presents. They are all decked to the nines in state of the art technology enabling them to deliver presents to the millions of kids around the world. When one present is left behind, Arthur takes it upon himself to make sure that one gift is delivered to that little girl. He can’t stand the idea of the disappointment that child would feel when she wakes up on Christmas to no presents from Santa.
This animated movie is packed with great voice actors: James McAvoy as Arthur, Hugh Laurie as Steve, Bill Nighy as Grandsanta, Jim Broadbent as Santa, and Imelda Staunton as Mrs. Santa.
