From Aardman Animations (Chicken Run) and Sony Pictures Animation (The Smurfs) comes this heartwarming animated tale of Santa's youngest son, Arthur and his race to save one little girl's Christmas. The movie reveals the answer to the age old question of children everywhere, just how all those millions of presents get delivered in one night, through an eye-popping look at Santa's high-tech North Pole operation. The 3D release, which was nominated for a Golden Globe® award, a BAFTA and Critics' Choice award for Best Animated Feature film, also took home the Golden Tomato award for Best Reviewed Animated Film of 2011 from the popular website, RottenTomatoes.com

Directed by Sarah Smith with Co-Director Barry Cook (Mulan), the computer animated 3-D film features the voices of James McAvoy (X-Men: First Class), Hugh Laurie (TV's House), Bill Nighy (Love Actually), Jim Broadbent (The Iron Lady), Imelda Staunton and Ashley Jensen (both The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists). The movie also includes Justin Bieber's single, "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town" from his album "Under the Mistletoe". Arthur Christmas was produced by Peter Lord, David Sproxton, Carla Shelley and Steve Pegram (all The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists) with Co-Producer Chris Juen (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs) and Co-Executive producer Peter Baynham (Hotel Transylvania). Baynham and Smith wrote the screenplay with music by Harry Gregson-Williams (Total Recall).
