Arthur Christmas (2011)
Stars: The voices of James McAvoy, Hugh Laurie
If you’ve ever questioned just how on Earth Father Christmas (or Santa, if you prefer) manages to deliver all of those presents to kids worldwide in just one night, then herein lies your answer. It’s a military-like operation overseen by one of the latest Santa’s sons, but this year it goes awry, with one pressie slipping through the cracks. Distressed that one child will miss out and feel unloved, the other son, Arthur, sets out to put things right in this wonderful computer-animated tale that bursts with Aardman charm (just without the fingerprints).
