I have to admit that I’m very much a kid at heart when it comes to the holidays! One of my favorite things about this time of year is spending time with my family watching holiday movies. Our whole family finds this kind of quality time to be rather special and something that we always look back on with fond memories.
Of course there are so many holiday movies that we rank among our favorites, movies that we watch with as much delight and festivity the fifth time as we do the first, and then there are new movies that we find equally appealing. We recently had the chance to review a new DVD (released in stores today: October 13) called Gotta Catch Santa Claus. The all new CGI-animated movie features William Shatner as the voice of Santa Claus and is sure to be a modern-day holiday classic. Gotta Catch Santa Claus is also scheduled to be broadcast nationally on ABC Family’s “25 Days of Christmas” programming block! Here’s a brief overview of the movie:
Hold on to your reindeer because finding Santa is about to become an adventure of a lifetime! Lionsgate releases an all-new CGI animated feature Gotta Catch Santa Claus, starring William Shatner as the voice of Santa. Sure to become a modern-day holiday classic, this funny, contemporary DVD is enjoyable for the entire family and features six jolly jammin’ new holiday songs. When a friend starts to doubt the idea of Santa Claus, 12 year old Trevor sets out on a mission to catch old St. Nick in order to prove his existence and put the skeptics to rest. Gotta Catch Santa Claus, which will be broadcast nationally on ABC Family during their annual "25 Days of Christmas" programming block, features bonus materials on the DVD that include deleted scenes, behind the scenes Santa footage, sing-along songs and more! The DVD is available in a foil embossed O-card on October 13th for the suggested retail price of $19.98.
And here’s sneak peek for those of you who can’t wait to go buy the movie!
We sat down as a family and watched Gotta Catch Santa Claus and let me just say all four of my kids enjoyed the movie! The animation was superb, the story was touching and full of fun, and my children became very excited and anxious for Christmas to come and Santa to visit them!
