Santa’s Apprentice


Animated movie based on French TV series Discuss this article

Santa is getting too old and needs to retire – although he doesn’t want to. The lucky one to replace him will be picked from among millions of children and must fulfil three criteria: be called Nicholas, be an orphan and have a pure heart. A little boy from an orphanage in Australia is the perfect candidate. But his fear of heights and lack of self-confidence makes it hard for him to reach the goal. So, will Santa agree to leave his job and help his apprentice overcome the obstacles and become the new Santa?

This animated movie is based on Jan Van Rijsselberge’s French TV series SantApprentice. A family adventure suitable for young children, it arrives just in time for the annual visit from the man himself.
