ONE PRESENT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE

ARTHUR CHRISTMAS (2011)
– 3 and a half out of 5 stars

Arthur (James McAvoy) has to deliver the last of Santa’s gift in order to uphold the spirit of Christmas. Will he make it in time? … Now you know Santa isn’t the one breaking and entering, going down chimneys, doing Mission: Impossible gymnastics to give you your Christmas presents. He’s probably not the one checking the Naughty/Nice list.

James McAvoy as another animated character? No problem! OMG I just love his voice! Even his blinking LED-slippers are adorable. Plus, it’s so amazing that the gas from the Aurora Borealis is used to power the sleigh! Bryony the wrapping elf is obsessed about wrapping and using only “three pieces of tape”.

Betcha didn’t know the lead characters are voiced by Harry Potter alumni.
Jim Broadbent (Horace Slughorn) voices the current Santa, Bill Nighy (Rufus Scrimgeour) voices Grand-Santa and Imeda Staunton (Dolores Umbridge) voices Margaret Claus, Santa’s wife.
