My family can’t get enough of watching holiday themed movies. Even though we are only in the second week of November, I don’t think it is too early to start watching some of our favorites. I like to add some new ones to our collection too. This year it is the Holiday Double Feature of Santa’s Apprentice and The Magic Snowflake.
Tis the season to bring home some holiday cheer with Santa’s Apprentice and The Magic Snowflake arriving as a special DVD double feature, as well as individually on DVD from Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company. Based on the animated television series “SantApprentice,” the perfect gift for anybody naughty or nice comes with jolly goodies including 16 winter themed decals to help spread the joy.
In Santa’s Apprentice, starring Julie Gayet (My Best Friend, Select Hotel), Jean-Pierre Marielle (The Da Vinci Code), Max Cullen (The Great Gatsby, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Australia), Gabe Eggerling (The Kicks, “Jake and the Never Land Pirates”), Santa doesn’t want to retire, but rules are rules and he must train someone to replace him. The lucky winner, to be chosen from among millions of children, must be named Nicholas, be an orphan and have a pure heart.
On the other side of the planet, there is a little boy who is a perfect match, but his lack of self-confidence and fear of heights make him a poor contestant. Will Santa agree to step down, and help his apprentice take his place?
In the sequel to Santa’s Apprentice, The Magic Snowflake, starring Vincent Grass (The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, Ernest & Celestine), Nathan Simony (Santa’s Apprentice, “Merlin”), the new Santa is a seven year-old boy.
As Nicholas contracts the illness of those who want to grow up too fast: Grown-up-itis, The Council of Retired Santas is forced to relieve him of his duties and appoint an experienced Santa who will be able to manage the delivery in time. To get his job back, Nicholas must regain the innocence, freshness and carefree attitude of his childhood.
These are really cute movies. There is nice message about believing in yourself and not being in a rush to grow up. I like that it is available as a double feature because you don’t have to go searching for the sequel. The festive holiday wall decals are a nice bonus that the kids can use to help decorate the houe.
These perfect animated tales are filled with holiday magic for the whole family – great for holiday gift giving! The Santa’s Apprentice and The Magic Snowflake double feature is ready for gift wrapping on DVD for the suggested retail price of $19.98. Each title is also available separately on DVD for the suggested retail price of $14.98 each. Both family-friendly animated tales are also available individually on Digital HD and On Demand.
