When the Great Ak and Young Claus travel the world, they're supposed to be invisible, but blurry so that the audience can see them. When they reach their last stop, which shows two armored men fighting, the Great Ak and Young Claus are fully visible. See more »
I've never heard the "raised by faerie folk" story of Santa before. It was refreshing to see fantasy wood elves instead of the usual fat bearded ones. The council around the table looked as if they were drinking Wassail and celebrating the Winter Solstice. If you grew up playing D&D, you'll most likely enjoy this!
