Below is the teaser trailer for Arthur Christmas, and if you’re like me, now that you know it’s animated, you’re probably already contemplating clicking away. I understand. But the teaser trailer is adorable, even if it is a year too early. It’s not a trailer so much as a short film featuring the characters, one of which is Arthur Christmas, the son of Santa, who rides a giant sleigh that looks more like a UFO.
And if that’s not enough to pique your interest, maybe this is: It comes from the same folks who bring you Wallace and Gromit. Sold? I was, at least on the teaser.
Oh, and James McAvoy is the voice of Arthur. A shame that voices can’t take off their shirts, eh?
