Santa Claus legend crosses paths with hi-tech scientific wizardy, in the UK kooky CG-animated comedy, Arthur Christmas.

This holiday season flaky fantasy addresses the long unrevealed mystery, pertaining to just how Santa manages to deliver all those presents around the planet in one mere night.

And simultaneously race around the globe with ideas, information and instant conversations, virtual and otherwise, at just about the speed of light.

An early preview of Arthur Christmas, which touches down in theaters on November 23rd in 3D and minus transport via sled and reindeer, was a magical encounter. Whether addressing the mind boggling but unfathomably never tardy dilemma of fulfilling all Christmas eve deliveries on schedule - Or, spending time with the animated quirky kin making all the fuss about it - Arthur Christmas is filled with an abundance of warmth, wit, heart and humor.

The movie stars James McAvoy as the voice of Arthur, James Broadbent as Santa, Imelda Staunton as Mrs. Santa and Bill Nighy as the voice of Grandsanta. More information about Arthur Christmas, and a preview of the trailer, are accessible at: ARTHURCHRISTMAS.COM.
