Storyline

A Magical Snowman Takes Two Children on the Adventure of a Lifetime in This All-New Animated Feature! Everybody knows that Christmas is the time when miracles happen. And this exciting new tale is about a cool snowman who brings a very special gift to a little girl and her family. Emery Elizabeth is a little girl whose illness seems to make her weaker every day. But Emery's brother Landon has his own ideas about how to help his sister find the will to get better. Every day, Landon tells his sister a story about the coolest guy on the planet--Snowden the Snowman--who lives in an enchanted kingdom where there are no grownups...where beds are made from marshmallows and lullaby birds sing kids to sleep...where there's always fresh, white snow on the ground...and most importantly, where the good Princess Electra and her magical smile keep people happy all year 'round. But when Princess Electra's smile is stolen by the evil Charlatan, Lord of Yuck, Snowden comes alive and pulls Landon and ... Written by Anonymous

One of my favourite Jetlag animations
20 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Going through my phase of re-watching the animations of Golden Films, Jetlag and Burbank(both Films Australia and Animation Studios), Magic Gift of the Snowman was always one of my favourites, and of many gems and a few disappointments from an adult perspective Magic Gift of the Snowman is one of the standouts. The animation is suitably colourful, for me one of the better-looking Jetlag productions in that regard, while the script leaves you in a heart-warming mood, the characters are likable(Emery Elizabeth especially really touched me) and the voice work, consisting of voice actors who could be seen as regulars for Jetlag Productions, is solid enough once you get used to Snowden's cool talk. My favourite assets though of Magic Gift of the Snowman were the music and the story. The music is lovely, whimsical in the background music while all the three songs work, You Have the Power is especially soothing. And the story is very cute and imaginative, with lovely morals about dreams, happiness and imagination and their needs. In conclusion, one of the standouts from Jetlag Productions, Magic Gift of the Snowman is heart-warming and imaginative, and above all serves its purpose to entertain its target audience very well. 10/10 Bethany Cox
