2. A Boy Called Christmas

An ordinary young boy called Nikolas sets out on an adventure into the snowy north in search of his father who is on a quest to discover the fabled village of the elves, Elfhelm. Taking with him a headstrong reindeer called Blitzen and a loyal pet mouse, Nikolas soon meets his destiny.

3. Elf

This movie is sweet and funny, though it can’t quite seem to make up its mind whether people should need proof of Santa’s existence or not. Some of the jokes in Elf work better than others, and the talents of Caan, Steenburgen, Bob Newhart (as Buddy’s adoptive father), and Ed Asner (as Santa) are neglected. But director Jon Favreau shows some verve and keeps the story moving quickly enough to keep it from feeling like a series of skits.

5. Rise Of The Guardians

Parents should be aware that Rise of the Guardians is similar to The Avengers in that it features childhood icons such as Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, and the Sandman. There’s a lot of action and some mild violence centered on the menacing bad guy Pitch Black, who uses his cavalry of terrifying stallions to turn children’s dreams into nightmares. However, it is highly recommended!

6. Over The Moon

A bright young girl, driven by determination and a love of science, constructs a rocket ship to the moon to prove the existence of a legendary Moon Goddess. There, she embarks on an unexpected journey and discovers a whimsical land teeming with fantastical creatures.
This movie combines magical locations, impressive animation, memorable musical numbers, sweet characters, and positive life lessons in a fairy tale about the boundless love of family.

Hansel and Gretel are back together again. The movie is colourful and funny. It also has positive messages about the importance of forgiveness, working together to do good, and the value of family bonds. However, there are frequent depictions of magic and witchcraft and a scary scene or two, though the movie views dark magic as evil.
