We have had a sneaky peek at Arthur Christmas on Blu-Ray, which is an Aardman Animation CGI production.
So how can Santa deliver millions of presents to the whole world in just one night? The answer is with an army of one million combat-style Field Elves and a vast, state-of-the-art control center under the ice of the North Pole under the control of Santa's son Steve! However, one Christmas something goes wrong and in spite of this incredible operation they accidentally MISS one child?!
To Santa’s young son, Arthur, the forgotten present threatens to end the magic of Christmas. With retired Grandsanta, a rebellious young elf from the Wrapping Department, and an old sleigh, Arthur sets out in a crazy mission to deliver the last present and save Christmas!
We thought this film was great. The comedy element is brilliant, the vocal talents work incredibly well, the animation is quirky, the storyline is original and creative and the message that every child matters is heartwarming. We loved the dynasty of Santas and the family dynamic which drives the plot. The film delivers the perfect dose of comedy and sentiment and is definitely one of my favourite Christmas movies of recent years. The children agree. Kizzy aged 10 said it was "really funny and cute and Arthur is so lovely". Freddy who is 3 was spellbound and giggled at the visual humour. Sixteen year old Ella also loved it. It's definitely one for all the family to watch together.
The DVD and Blu-Ray include a host of special features and also come with a UV copy of the film.
