Santa Claus isn’t actually immortal, instead the title is handed down from father to son. Steve Claus is next in line and has stream lined the business to ensure every present is delivered promptly with only a slight margin of error. Arthur Christmas is in love with Christmas and when a child has gone without a present from Santa, Arthur ensures no child is left out.
I loved this film from the start. The plot although aimed at children is great and has such a lovely message about not giving up on what we most believe in.
I loved the characters, especially Mrs Claus who is a spectacular women. Malcolm (Santa Claus) obviously has no clue what she does with her time, because Mrs Claus can do anything (she takes online courses). Though Malcolm did annoy me by not knowing what his wife gets up to and just thinking she is doing wifey things.
This movie lets the audience cross the world in just one night, and the scenery is beautiful.
This was the first time I saw this movie, and I regret not watching this sooner. Arthur Christmas is definitely going to have to be added to my watch every year Christmas movie list.
Lets get down to ratings:

You should defiantly watch this, it is in my opinion one of the best christmas movie of all time. Perfect for the entire family.
