Abstract:

The story: Finally, the answer to the incredible question asked by every child: So how does Santa deliver billions of presents to every corner of the planet in just one night? According to Arthur Christmas, it takes millions of elves, an ultra high-tech Mission Control, the S-1, a huge, milewide, state-of-the-art sleighship, three generations of working Santas, a family in a state of comic dysfunction, and Arthur, an unlikely hero on an urgent mission that must be completed before Christmas morning dawns. The voice cast includes: James McAvoy as Arthur; Hugh Laurie as Steve; Bill Nighy as Grandsanta; Jim Broadbent as Santa; Imelda Staunton as Mrs. Santa; and, Ashley Jensen as Bryony. The Book: From the publisher of "The Art of How To Train Your Dragon", the lavishly illustrated moviebook features glorious art culled from the archives of Aardman and Sony Pictures Imageworks, including hundreds of drawings, paintings, concept art, background art, color keys, animation wire frames, and storyboards. The text includes commentaries with Sony Pictures Digital Productions President Bob Osher, the Co-Founder of Aardman and Producer Peter Lord, the director/writer Sarah Smith, co-writer Pete Baynham, the producers, animators, artists and Visual F/X and CG supervisors, the voice cast, and others who brought this hilarious family movie vividly to life.
