The animated movie Arthur Christmas announces the release of another teaser on July 12. This is the second trailer. The first one was released on December 6, last year.
It seems that since the Harry Potter first movie of the franchise, more and more people are attracted to fairytales. The fantasy has gained more public than ever. The Lord Of The Rings, Harry Potter, Twilight, Pirates of the Caribbean are just a few movies – and the most popular – from the wide variety of fantasy films released in the last decade. More than that, the audience has grown for the animated movies as well. Avatar, which is a hybrid between real cast and animated cast is one of the most acclaimed projects. In an industry that asks more and more for animated characters and animated films, here comes Arthur Christmas!
The movie is set to answer the question that every parent has trouble answering to his offspring: “How does Santa Claus manage to deliver that many presents when he only has one night to do it?” Moms and dads often try to find an explanation that the child understands and accepts: Santa is supersonic, moving incredibly fast, he has elves doing the job for him, there are more Santas than one, he has the magic ability of stopping the passing of the time, and so on. Well, parents, this movie has all the answers. Due to a high-tech operation that is hidden beneath the North Pole, Santa can finish his job in no time. But don’t be fooled, the story is not only about that.
Arthur Christmas is due to premiere this year on November 23. The movie is directed by Barry Cook and is starring:
• James McAvoy, whom you can still see on the big screen in X-Men: First Class, in the role of Charles Xavier (future Doctor X)
• Hugh Laurie, the famous Dr. House
• Jim Broadbent, professor Horace Slughorn in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2
• Bill Nichy, Minister Rufus Scrimgeour in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1
• Imelda Staunton, Dolores Umbridge from Harry Potter franchise
