File: Arthur Christmas
Arthur Christmas is a 2011 British/American 3-D computer animated fantasy comedy film produced by Aardman Animations and Sony Pictures Animation. It was released on November 11, 2011, in the UK, and is scheduled to be released on November 23, 2011, in the USA. The film was directed by Sarah Smith, and it features voices of James McAvoy, Hugh Laurie, Jim Broadbent, Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton and Ashley Jensen. Set on the North Pole, the plot tells about Santa's son Arthur Christmas, who must complete a mission before Christmas morning.
The story of Arthur Christmas revolves around Santa Claus, his wife, his two sons Arthur and Steve as well as their grandfather, Grandsanta. Set on Christmas Night, the film opens with a set of elves sitting behind their computers at the commando bridge of Santa's gigantic modern ultra high tech sleigh. While Santa and the elves deliver presents to all the children using their high tech equipment, Santa's oldest son Steve is managing the operation.
In this moment Santa's clumsy younger son Arthur, who works at the post station answering childrens letters addressed to Santa rushes into the room with a stack of papers causing chaos. Steve and a many of the elves are annoyed at Arthur for disturbing their operation and Steve convinces his brother to leave.
Later on, when their father is returning from his seventieth successful mission (he has now officially delivered presents for 70 years straight), he holds a small speech for the dozens of elves. Steve who long since wishes to become Santa is disappointed when his father tells everyone that he can't await his next year as Santa Claus.
During the following family Christmas dinner Arthur suggests that everyone should play a Christmas board game. When the figures are distributed a fight erupts between Santa Claus, his son and his own father as they all want the figurine depicting Santa Claus. Santa, who is reluctant to pass on the position of Santa to his son wants to have the figure claiming that he is after all Santa Claus. Meanwhile Steve is tired of standing in his father's shadow all the time and finally wants to succeed him as Santa Claus. However, his grandfather who is bored with sitting around all day and misses the old times, tells Steve he is no better than a mailman with a lot of gadgets.
Grandsanta despises the modern world alongside its technology and feels that a real Santa Claus should deliver present with a sled made out of wood and pulled by reindeers. The various family members distraughtly leave the dinner table. While Grandsanta grumpily returns to his room, Arthur stops Steve and gives him a figurine of the Santa Claus saying that he is a great man and one day will be a great Santa Claus. However, Steve merely rejects Arthur saying that he should close the doors he left open while going after him because it is cold at the North Pole. At the same time Santa is overcome with doubt, asking his wife who he is if he is not Santa anymore while going to bed. His wife tells him that he is still her husband and that she will always love him.
While the family members settle their own issues, an elf from the giftwrapping battalion named Bryony who cleans up the floor finds a wrapped bicycle that has not been delivered yet. She immediately alerts Steve and his elf-assistant to the problem. Arthur who overhears them immediately panics and rushes into his room, and recognizes the present as being the gift for a little girl named Gwen, who has written him about her wish in a letter addressed to Santa. Arthur alerts his father Santa to the problem, who also doesn't know how to handle the situation. Steve says that it is only one present and shows his father a computer graphic that indicates that one undelivered present only equals a minimal error and that otherwise their Christmas was perfect. Santa who does not know how to deal with this agrees although somewhat reluctantly with his son as there is nothing they can do because the sun is about to rise in two hours and their high tech sled has to be overhauled before he can go on an another ride.
