What's it about?

When postman Jesper distinguishes himself, he is sent to Smeerensburg, a small village located on an icy island above the Arctic Circle, where grumpy inhabitants barely exchange words, let alone letters.

Why did we pick it?

Christmas films get shipped out in their dozens every year but every so often a film comes around with the magic and lasting factor to become a modern classic. The 2D animation mixed with artificial lighting gives an astounding 3D effect which when paired with a Christmas origin story took our breath away at how refreshingly original it was.

Who's in it? Jason Schwartzman - Jesper

J.K. Simmons - Klaus

Rashida Jones - Alva

Who made it?

Sergio Pablos - Director & Writer

Jim Mahoney - Writer (Screenplay)

Zach Lewis - Writer (Screenplay)
