Product Description

When the evil Krad steals Santa's toy bag he crushes the holiday spirit- and over time, the world's children forget all about Christmas. Now, a wide-eyed orphan and her band of friends will embark on the polar adventure of a lifetime as they try to stop Krad from destroying Christmas once and for all! Featuring an all-star cast, Christmas Is Here Again is a heartwarming animated odyssey in the spirit of Frosty the Snowman and How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Bonus Features include:
Behind the Scenes
Cast Interviews
Name that Reindeer
Spanish Subtitles


Christmas Is Here Again has a decidedly retro feel to it, and is likely to be a trip down memory lane for those of us who cherish cold holiday nights in front of a television screen watching Rudolph, Frosty, Charlie Brown and so many more. Whereas so many of today's Christmas specials focus on razzle dazzle, Christmas Is Here Again is content presenting a timeless story combined with enchanting characters, wonderful music and a straightforward, feel-good production. It's a wonderful film with lessons about compassion, giving, loyalty and never giving up hope. For those of you looking to add a new film to your Holiday movie tradition, Christmas Is Here Again is an ideal choice for families, children and for Scrooges like myself who, somewhere deep inside, still want to believe. -- Richard Propes, The Independent Critic,

5.0 out of 5 stars A NEW CHRSTIMAS TRADITION FOR MY FAMILY! November 9, 2008
By M. Axe
After reading the reviews here, I decided to go out and buy a copy of this film for my family to watch. It sure put us in the holiday spirit and we all cannot wait to watch it again! The animation is done so beautifully that the characters and scenes just seem to come alive. The voice actors in this movie is what really attracted me to the film - quite a diverse group of actors, all of whom are great and truly shine in this film.

The music is quite catchy and enjoyable, the characters are lovable, and the story is an inspiration that provides humor and hope for all! I'm so glad that the film brought in a way to describe what the holiday season really is all about. Go out and buy this film! I know it will be enjoyed by my family for many years to come; it surely will not disappoint you this holiday season! Proudly give this 5 Stars!

Thought this would be a good holiday movie to watch with the family so I rented it. Glad I did because this movie is lame. Basically Santa's magic toy "sack" has been stolen by some evil villain that hate's Christmas so Santa is cancelling the holiday. A young girl and a couple other characters set out to find Santa's sack and save xmas. There were three main things I REALLY disliked about this movie:

1)The Music. If I was a music teacher and this was what my class produced, F- for everyone. The songs are not catchy at all and seem like they were made up as the people went along. Not to mention all of them sound the same: background orchestra music with person "singing" in almost a talking voice. Lastly, the songs drag on (and I mean draaaaaaaaag) for several minutes. At the end of each one came a sigh of relief that it was over. I'd rather be punched in the ear by someone wearing brass knuckles than have to sit through another verse of music from this movie. Seriously.

2) The story behind Santa's sack. I give some credit for creativity but I can see how many would find it disturbing that his sack was made from the blankets baby Jesus was wrapped up in at birth. I hope they washed that thing.

3) And finally, what I have the biggest problem with is the antagonist. This movie goes way above and beyond at casting the devilish creature that stole Santa's sack as evil. My daughter is 4 years old and wanted to turn the movie off at those parts because it was too scary. She normally watches Scooby Doo and similar cartoons so she can handle some ghosts and basic kid hauted house stuff no problem. However, this character is downright evil and had me questioning if I even approved of her watching.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just plain bad. December 4, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My family and I just watched this video, and it's awful. It's 72 minutes long, and the first 45 minutes is completely depressing. All sad songs, with lazy lyrics. The bad guy "Krad" (dark backwards, how creative) sings "I stole Santa's sack, and I"m never giving it back. I'm so evil" about 50 times. It's a boring story, with bad writing and bad music. The only thing redeemable about it is the actual animation. The style is interesting. But that's it. We will never watch this again.

In this age of media saturation, a parent is challenged each Christmas to find something fresh, new, age-appropriate and reflective of the real meaning behind Christmas. This movie is all of that and more, and what makes it especially great is that, while it is essentially an exciting adventure story about helping Santa, it also gives appropriate andrespectful nod to the baby Jesus being the reason for the season--in the same way that the old perennial Santa Claus is Coming to Town does when Kris Kringle gets married, and when Linus reads the Christmas story at the end of A Charlie Brown Christmas. Very refreshing! There is also a wonderful song that features characters called "selves" who are the opposite of elves--and these "selves" are the selfish workers who work for the evil Crad, the bad guy who, when the movie begins, has been trying to take away Christmas for many years--until, of course, the cute little characters in this movie "save the day!!" In short, while it is a bit slow in parts, the characters are darling and funny, the message is right on the money and the colorful design of the film's backgrounds and characters is uplifting and inspiring. My kids enjoyed it many times last year and, I look forward to watching it as a family again this year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas is in the Sack! December 6, 2009

This film is truly a joy to watch. How refreshing it is to see that someone is not afraid to show what Christmas is all about. Giving and not taking. Thank you for making a movie I want to watch with my kids

4.0 out of 5 stars underrated and adorable cartoon December 21, 2010
The animation style is a bit more "artsy" then most modern cartoons but, after you get used to it, enjoyable change of pace. What really sells this film is the main character Sophianna. This orphan is so sweet yet believable, you want her to succeed and are with her until the end. The rest of the cast varies in depth from flatish (the main villain and his crew, Santa and most of his elves) but they do not detract from the overall story. There are some songs, most of which are well-done. The odd exception is the main villain's which even leads to some humor from the main cast. Overall, a worthwhile buy for anyone young or young-at-heart.

I'm not sure who is writing these 5 Star reviews, but I suspect they have something to gain from sales of this movie. This movie was so bad I had to turn it off. Read more
