Klaus | Official Trailer | Netflix

It's officially the holiday season!  In 51 days, good ole' Saint Nick will come to town. Shopping centers are being decorated, stores are full of holiday trimmings and restaurants are taking reservations for your holiday party. Yes, Christmas is coming soon! The amazing part of this holiday season is a wonderful new holiday movie that everyone in the family will enjoy. "Klaus" is a lovely story sharing the origin of Santa Claus with an incredibly original twist.  This isn't the old "Santa Claus is coming to town" story line. Klaus is coming to select theaters November 8th and on Netflix November 15th; what a way to start the Holiday movie season.

Official synopsis:

"When Jesper (Jason Schwartzman) distinguishes himself as the postal academy’s worst student, he is stationed on a frozen island above the Arctic Circle, where the feuding locals hardly exchange words let alone letters. Jesper is about to give up when he finds an ally in local teacher Alva (Rashida Jones), and discovers Klaus (Oscar-winner J.K. Simmons), a mysterious carpenter who lives alone in a cabin full of handmade toys. These unlikely friendships return laughter to Smeerensburg, forging a new legacy of generous neighbors, magical lore and stockings hung by the chimney with care. An animated holiday comedy directed by Despicable Me co-creator Sergio Pablos, KLAUS co-stars Joan Cusack, Will Sasso and Norm Macdonald."

Klaus will make you laugh, it will make you cry, it will be a new tradition to watch with your family each and every holiday season.  The movie is host to a full line up of very talented actors/actresses bringing a solid story line and heartfelt theme.  Director and Co-Creator, Sergio Pablos, brings his talents and leadership through in this 2D hand drawn Christmas story.  Veteran animators mentored and developed younger artists across 22 countries to bring you a truly incredible entertainment experience!  There is no CGI in this film however the use of color and graphics to present the emotion and chemistry of the characters is brilliant.

We were invited to the Netflix offices in Hollywood for a pre-screening of this incredible story. All of us left feeling uplifted and looking forward to the holidays. We can't wait to watch it again and again. 

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!!
