It’s that time of year again – the Christmas puddings are being piled high in supermarkets, the sounds of jingle bells are drawing steadily closer and Christmas movies are heading our way! The first of these is the highly anticipated Arthur Christmas.
The 3D, CG-animated family comedy Arthur Christmas, an Aardman production for Sony Pictures Animation, at last 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 heart of the film is a story with the ingredients of a Christmas classic – 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. Voiced by James McAvoy, Hugh Laurie, Jim Broadbent and Bill Nighy.
