A Boy Called Christmas comes from the studio behind Paddington (2014) and looks just as humorous and charming.
In what is essentially a Santa Claus prequel film, A Boy Called Christmas follows a young boy, Nikolas (Henry Lawfull), embark on a magical adventure to find his father, who himself has set off to find the mysterious village of the elves.
He’s accompanied by a boisterous reindeer called Blitzen and a talking pet mouse as the trio get up to all sorts of mischief in this coming-of-age feel-good holiday movie.
A Boy Called Christmas looks like a lot of fun with top-notch production values and features an A-list cast that includes Toby Jones, Sally Hawkins, Kristen Wiig, Michiel Huisman, Zoe Colletti, Jim Broadbent, Maggie Smith, and the voice of Stephen Merchant.
Coming from the studio behind the smash-hit Paddington, audiences can expect a heartfelt, comedic movie that should resonate with young and old.
It looks like the perfect feel-good holiday movie for anyone looking for a couple of hours of uplifting entertainment.
The film is directed by Gil Kenan, whose 2006 animation Monster House received a nomination for Best Animated Feature that year.
Expect to see A Boy Called Christmas releasing in late November 2021.
