    Product Description

    Arthur Christmas reveals the incredible, never-before seen answer to every child's question: 'So how does Santa deliver all those presents in one night?' The answer: Santa's exhilarating, ultra-high-tech operation hidden beneath the North Pole. But at the center of the film is a story about a family in a state of comic dysfunction and an unlikely hero, Arthur, with an urgent mission that must be completed before Christmas morning dawns.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A new Christmas classic September 29, 2012
    By Seb311
    What a great film. This will become a Christmas classic that gets played on tv at Christmas time for decades. It is a shame it did not do better at the American box office as this film is a classic. Me and my daughter have been waiting impatiently for this to come out on Blu Ray ever since we saw it last November in the theater. If you are looking for a new Christmas classic to enjoy with your family and make apart of your family tradition, then look no further.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Christmas Magic October 25, 2012
    I took the kids to see this in the theater. They absolutely loved it. The colors and animation are wonderful. It's a heartfelt, modern family story that takes a look at how we can lose sight of what's important when computer gadgetry takes over society. The clever writing answers all those pesky questions about how Santa gets around the world in one night, keeps track of all the kids' letters, and how the toys are packed into the sleigh. This really brings the magic of Christmas alive. I highly recommend it to kids of all ages who love Christmas.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Arthur Delivers Christmas October 29, 2012
    The story is smart and the character animation is stellar. I can usually find something to quibble with in any movie but not this one. It's fun from start to heart-tugging finish. This one goes in the permanent collection.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Christmas is Good with Arthur CHristmas! November 20, 2011
    MOVIE NOTE #11: ARTHUR CHRISTMAS I went to see an Academy screening of this new Sony Pictures/Ardmen Production of "Arthur Christmas".

    Directed by first time animated feaure film director Sarah Smith (mainly noted for her writing and producing of British TV) and co-written by her and her long-time writing partner Peter Baynham (noted for his writting of such films like the new Authur, and the two BORAT films) - they embark on a very very old tale with a very new and exciting twist! Arthur (Voiced by X-Men:First Class's and Gnomeo & Juliet's James McAvoy) is the youngest child of what is now the Santa 'Dynasty'. For generations Santa Claus's yearly duties have been passed down, apparently, from son to son. The next son in line for the current Santa (Voiced by Harry Potter's own Jim Broadbent) is supposed to be Steve (Voiced by the always surprising 'House' star Hugh Laurie who also played Dr. Cockroach in the animated Monster'Vs.'Aliens) - but both Steve and Santa has some real issues - the meaning of Christmas and what Santa really is all about!

    The basic plot - SPOILER ALERT - one child is 'missed' - quite by accident - on Christmas Eve. The movie has an excelletly clever opening with the S-1 Santa Sleigh showing you how Santa presently deliveries 2 Billion presents in one night all over the world. The gags, the jokes, the stunts these elves perform are amazingly clever and funny. The traveling concepts from the new ship to the reindeer are also inventive. Then the film does slows down a bit for the first third and was a little thick in Britishisms....but by the 2nd act and completely through the end the film gains a momentous heart!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Yes Gwen ... There Is A Santa Claus. November 10, 2012
    Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
    "Operation: Santa Claus Is Coming To Town"... Is beautifully directed by Sarah Smith. She spins out a whole new animated theme of the Christmas scene, headed-up at and coming out of the North Pole. What's first asked, is: Just who is actually in charge up there? It would be either the current Santa Claus (Jim Broadbent), who comes down through the generations with each Claus portrait hung on the wall, or the up-and-coming, heir-apparent, eldest son Steve (Hugh Laurie).

    While the current Santa (usually awaiting a nap) is more of a 'position-holder' up-north, Steve is in complete control with a militarily disciplined style. With the elves, and everything that needs doing, he's hyped for "efficiency and productivity". The younger and kinder son, Arthur (James McAvoy), obviously operates from the heart. He's in charge of receiving all the letters to Santa and making sure the children are getting what they need; he believes that Santa is the "Greatest Man Ever".

    In a quaint town in England, little apple-cheeked Gwen slips her annual letter to Santa Claus into the post box with the highest of hopes. She begins an opening monologue asking a whole lot of questions about, and of, Santa Claus: "Why?"-this and "Why?"-that, including her doubts of whether or not he is even real. Her friend told her otherwise while Gwen... Still Believes!

    We see an entirely orchestrated Christmas Eve night enfold... Steve is at the helm and in the complete direction of all 'operations'. His father is Santa, and he's delivering the toys along with the new, high-tech elves ('1st. Field Elves Battalion'). Steve is choreographing everything behind the scenes, to the most minute of detail.
