ARTHUR CHIRSTMAS, SONY PICTURES and Aardman Productions Holiday Theatrical Release, has partnered with the Marines Toys for Tots Foundation in a quest to create a very special Christmas for every child, everywhere.
The ARTHUR CHRISTMAS sneak peek media day, held at Culver Studios in Culver City California, set the scene for the Holiday Spectacular by recreating an idyllic Winter Wonderland complete with Christmas Carolers, Wooden Toy Soldiers, Christmas trees, presents, delightful holiday goodies, hot chocolate, Eggnog, and yes even snow!
ARTHUR CHRISTMAS, voiced by James McAvoy, tells the story of the biggest night of the year for The Claus family, planned with precision by his older brother, Steve, voiced by Hugh Laurie, a working behind the scenes CEO, a man of action, heir apparent, the man the world couldn’t live without, with all the credit given to the front man Santa, voiced by Jim Broadbent. The Claus family is rounded out by Grand Santa voiced by Bill Nighy, a crotchety, cantankerous, grandfather reliving the good ole days before technological advancements encroached on the way it was and the way it worked for decades and the way it effectively retired him. Mrs. Claus, Santa’s dedicated, faithful and devoted wife voiced by Imelda Staunton and an Elf of Action, Bryony, voiced by Ashley Jensen.
As it was a sneak peek, the first thirty minutes of ARTHUR CHRISTMAS were incredibly entertaining, fun, full of holiday happiness and destined to be a holiday classic that will entertain children of all ages for years to come. ARTHUR CHRISTMAS, from what was seen, is thoroughly entertaining!
No holiday gathering would be complete without sweets, sweets and yes, even more sweet delicious treats! Christmas desserts, pumpkin squares topped with red and green sugar, chocolate bread pudding, gingerbread squares sprinkled with powdered sugar, cut-out cookies in all the Christmas shapes for the kids (of all ages) to decorate with delicious frosting in colors of the holiday season and topped with edible nonpareil decorations that send one right back to the night before in Mom’s kitchen!
With the naughty or nice meter in place, guests of SONY PICTURES ARTHUR CHRSITMAS sneak peek all left with Christmas gifts.
