Being chased by Gerold Goblynch, an evil man who wants to steal Christmas, Santa must find help if he is going to free his elves and Christmas angels from Goblynch's evil grasp. Will Santa succeed and save his Christmas helpers so every child's Christmas wish will be heard and come true?

BEWARE OF BOGUS REVIEWS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY REVIEW ONE FILM. WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION. IF ITS A NEGATIVE REVIEW THEN THEY MIGHT HAVE A GRUDGE AGAINST THAT PRODUCTION. NOW I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 200 Christmas MOVIES. I HAVE NO AGENDA. I AM FARE ABOUT THESE FILMS.

This is a German film dubbed into English. With two weeks left until Christmas, the last thing Ben and Charlotte expected is for Santa to crash-land his sleigh in their town! Santa has just escaped the villainous Gerold Geronimous Goblynch, recently named the new head of the Great Christmas Council. Goblynch's wicked ways have broken Christmas Land s joyous spirit, and he's threatened to turn Santa to ice and banish him from Christmas Land forever!

This films prime audience will be small children. Adults will be bored most of the time however if you like Christmas films then give this film a chance. If your young at heart you will like this. The film does entertain.
