Arthur Christmas Teaser Trailer

Meet Santa's son Arthur. British animation company Aardman (behind Wallace & Gromit, Flushed Away) is back at it again with another new animated flick, this time called Arthur Christmas, telling the story of Santa's son Arthur. Yahoo has debuted the first teaser trailer for the 3D animated movie, which isn't due out until Thanksgiving next year, but that's why this might be the perfect time to introduce us to these uniquely Aardman characters. The voice cast includes James McAvoy as Arthur, Jim Broadbent, Bill Nighy, Hugh Laurie and Imelda Staunton. It's another goofy teaser without any actual footage, so watch below and enjoy.

How does Santa deliver all those presents in one night? The answer: Santa's exhilarating, ultra-high-tech operation hidden beneath the North Pole. But this year, Santa's son Arthur has his own top secret mission.

Arthur Christmas is co-directed by effects animator Barry Cook, of Mulan, and Sarah Smith, who also wrote the script and is making her feature directing debut. Oscar nominated writer Peter Baynham who worked on the Bruno and Borat scripts and also wrote the Arthur remake for Russell Brand, helped co-write the script with Smith. Sony is bringing Aardman's Arthur Christmas to theaters November 23rd next Thanksgiving.

    saw this when yahoo movies posted it but thnx looks cheesy but still ok
  • Good for the bairns I suppose. More similar looking 3d puppets, although they do have a bit more charm than most.

    i'm a BIG fan of christmas movies and yet - this looks pretty bad.
  • This reminds me of the film "The Killing Fields", except there's no war conflict and it's in CGI.

    #6 - i have NO clue where you're coming from with that comment - it makes absolutely NO sense.
  • I'm sold just because it's Aardman. I know people will go 'Flushed Away sucked.' To be honest, I think most of that came from Dreamworks, thankfully Sony have gotten better and better, last year giving us Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, which lookd mediocre and turned out to be one of he best animated films of last year so I have a lot of faith in this.

    it would have been better if it was a hand drawn film. I will say this: Its fun to see MacAvoy using his natural comedic voice...he will probably be the only reason I see it.

    Is Morgan Freeman narrating the beginning of this trailer? Sounds like it.
