2 Great Holiday Movies To Watch With Your Kids



SANTA’S APPRENTICE & THE MAGIC

SNOWFLAKE: DVD DOUBLE FEATURE

Also Available Individually on DVD, Digital HD and On Demand

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, November 1, 2016 from Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company. Both family-friendly animated tales will also be available individually on Digital HD and On Demand. 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-allosis, 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.



The Santa’s Apprentice and The Magic Snowflake double feature will be ready for gift wrapping on DVD for the suggested retail price of $19.98. Each title will also be available separately on DVD for the suggested retail price of $14.98 each.

The 411: 

These movies were cute and well done.  Santa is getting older and MUST retire. He must also choose someone whose first name is Nicholas. He must also be an orphan and be pure of heart.  They find the perfect Nicholas but unfortunately this Nick is afraid of heights. Hmmmmm doesn't sounds like the perfect Santa to me. BUT as Christmas movies go this will also turn out for the best. 

In the sequel to Santa's Apprentice the Magic Snowflake, Nicholas is taking on some major responsibilities and has forgotten he is just a kid. It happens when you have some big boots to fill.

The characters are cute and I enjoyed the animation. My daughter and I loved the movie and when her friends were over we watched it again.
