Product Description

*National Parenting Publication Award (NAPPA): Silver Winner 2013* The Snowman and The Snowdog is the brand new charming sequel to the Christmas classic The Snowman, Raymond Briggs' iconic children's book. The Snowman follows the wonderful adventures of a young boy and the remarkable Snowman he creates. When a young boy and his mother move house, the boy discovers a secret box hidden under the floorboards of his bedroom. In the box, he finds a hat, scarf, some lumps of coal and a shriveled tangerine - it's a snowman-making kit! Later that day it starts to snow, and the boy builds a Snowman and with the little spare snow leftover, a Snowdog. That night they come to life and take him on a wonderful adventure. As dawn breaks they fly home, but before the boy returns to bed a magical surprise awaits him...

Review

This 2012 sequel to the Oscar-nominated 1982 animated adaptation of Raymond Briggs' wordless 1978 picture book follows a mom, her freckle-cheeked son, and their barking pet as they move into a new home. By the time the jack-o-lanterns decay, the family dog is buried in the backyard (an offscreen death, although the sight of its ball and collar on the mound is heartbreaking), and the boy's spirits are still low when he writes a letter for Santa. He also happens to stumble on a loose floorboard,discovering a box with a hat, scarf, and coal...and an aged photo of another youngster standing happily with a snowman friend. Setting out to build his own snowman, the boy gets the bright idea to make a canine companion, and at night is amazed to hear the dog barking and see his icy buddies come to life! The boy, the dog, and the snowman enjoy a fun nighttime escapade featuring flying, sledding, skiing, and a meeting with Santa that may result in the best present of all. A heartwarming, magical companion to the original, boasting gorgeous animation and a delicate score (in addition to Andy Burrows' majestic theme song 'Light the Night'), bonus features include the 'How The Snowman Came Back to Life', narrated by Juliet Stevenson, which features the reclusive Briggs. Highly recommended. Editor's Choice ----J. Williams-Wood, Video Librarian

I don't know how they did it, but they made a sequel that is just as good as the original!

The music is absolutely beautiful and works wonderfully with the story line.

If you loved the original "The Snowman", then this poignant and charming sequel is certain to warm your heart. A young boy moves with his mother to a new home. There's a sad event but I won't spoil it for you; suffice to say that the young man discovers something under the floorboards in his bedroom - a snowman decorating kit! It starts snowing and the boy is off to make a snowman and on a whim, he make a snowdog too. Fans of the original will know that the boy is soon to experience something magical, and will be taking flight with the snowman and his new companion, the snowdog to a a far-off, magical land, where they play with other snowmen and get to experience a magical Christmas. The young boy discovers that dreams and wishes do come true, and all is well, as it should be this magical time of year.

This makes the perfect stocking stuffer for Christmas, and my 8.5-year-old daughter and I truly enjoyed the show. It runs about 70 mins, and like the original contains no dialogue, just a wonderful accompanying soundtrack that brings to mind delightful holiday memories. There's bonus features such as a behind the scenes documentary and an interview with Raymond Briggs. All in all, a delightful sequel that makes for a magical viewing experience, for both young and old alike.

I grew up watching "The Snowman" with my family during the holidays, and now with children of my own, I can enjoy this new sequel. The storyline is easy to follow, even for young viewers, and at only 70 minutes keeps children's attention. The magic of Christmas, along with the importance of friendship, shine through in this movie. I loved the animation, which is similar to the iconic children's book and movie. I can't believe this year marks the 30th anniversary of the first movie, 'The Snowman." But, I can see both of these movies becoming family favorites, and enjoyed for years to come. Since receiving a copy for review, my kids and I have already watched this movie about the little boy and his new Snowman friend, half a dozen times. What a way to get into the holiday spirit. :-)

First of all the music is soooo beautiful! There is no dialogue and yet the story is so touching. My kids were mesmerized the entire time. We got a little snow the other day and my son went out in his pajamas and gloves to make a Snowman and a Snowdog…lol This show is definitely on our holiday tradition list now. I don't know how they did it, but they made a sequel that is just as good as the original!

This is a wonderful tale of a boy and the magic of snow. It comes directly from the book and is really like the book coming alive. It is wordless like the book. It has so much imagination and magic in it and is a wonderful winter story. It does have a scene with Santa in it. My daughter loved the movie!

This is a wonderful sequel to the original movie (have you ever seen it?) Our daughter received The Snowman book when she was very young from her aunt, and it was always a favorite to read. Billy is bright and curious and your children will relate to the character well. The adventure he goes on to the annual snowman party is fun and lots of recognizable places in London are part of the animated scape as they fly there. An appearance by Father Christmas tops the event off! A gift from him does something surprisingly magical that your children will love. *I received a complimentary DVD to review.

I haven't watched "The Snowman"; I plan to but this was a great price so I bought this newer movie it to make up a free shipping order.

The movie begins with a single mom, moving into a new house, with her young son and grey haired dog that has to be helped out of the car. The son understands his dog and rolls the dog's ball a few feet for the dog to chase after. I inferred that the ball was a precious part of the familiar home that the family had left; that in itself is sad. The off screen death of the dog, though inevitable, is heartbreaking.

Without seeing the original "Snowman" it isn't apparent that the missing father was not a new development; loss of a dad, moving to a new house, school & neighborhood, and a dying dog may be tough on a child, or an adult, that has suffered any one of these tragedies... let alone all three. Watch it yourself before you subject a young child to these tragic events in a person's life.

Billy's dream (he has no hat or gloves and is dressed in pajamas and slippers) seems like an escape from his real life. A bright child will soon figure out what is going on; a mature child will ask about it.

I rated the movie three stars because of the marvelous score, drawings and concept of a movie without dialogue which are adequately described in other reviews. Because of ????? comment I found a new inexpensive tape and bought and watched "The Snowman". The first of its kind "The Snowman" is magical, similar to "The Snowman and the Snowdog". Honestly I think "The Snowman" is better... except for the aforementioned 'doses of real life'.

Does DVD include original?
There are two editions on Blu-Ray and one of them includes The Snowman original. The set with both films does cost more.
