Storyline

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? Written by Gaumont-Alphanim

Best Holiday film for the young and old.
24 December 2014 | by (Miami, Florida) – See all my reviews

As I viewed the animated series "SantApprentice", I have noticed that it is the best holiday animated series that is so brilliant. When I saw this Holiday film, I have noticed the difference in between. This film I have noticed, it is more or less of a remake based off of the animated series. Except that this movie is better animated from it's predecessor. The characters and scenes were so colorful and well done animated, as well as some surprises that Kids and Adults would enjoy this Holiday film. While Kids would find this movie would be so delightful, their Christmas wishes would be so pure-hearted. As well as Adults also hinted by seeing this film to let out their inner child. I would highly recommend this excellent Holiday film to watch every Christmas.
