Movie Preview: Arthur Christmas
Christmas is probably the day most children look forward to in an entire year aside from their birthday. For them, Christmas day not only means presents but it is marked by a holiday season that is almost considered magical. It may seem magical indeed because it is the only time of the year when most everyone succumbs to the spirit of giving and the holiday season won’t be complete without the yearly holiday movie.
Arthur Christmas is a movie which will show us the inner-workings of the North Pole while Santa and his crew prepares for their busiest season. Arthur is Santa’s son. While he belongs to the Claus family, he seems to be the least-equipped member for Christmas. Due to this he was assigned to the mailroom where he reads every Christmas letter sent for Santa. When he learns that one kid wasn’t receiving his present, he sets out on a quest to make things right.
Looks like Arthur Christmas is gonna be one fun holiday ride. Arthur will be voiced by James McAvoy while Hugh Laurie voices Steve, another member of the Claus family. Arthur Christmas opens on December 8 in theaters across the Philippines.
