Arthur Christmas Giftbag Giveaway Holiday Family Animated Comedy Movie Fun, Ends 12/23

Movie Review & Giveaway
Entry details below

Since Thanksgiving weekend Arthur Christmas -- the 3D CG-animated family comedy presented by Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Animation in theaters nationwide and produced by Aardman -- has been spreading holiday cheer to kids, parents, and even adults without children. That's because in this version of the legend of Santa Claus you'll see the semi-retired fat jolly guy in red like never before: Going high tech, no longer delivering presents via the old-fashioned chimneys of Christmases past. I don't want to spoil the movie for those who haven't seen it yet, so suffice it to say that Santa is more of a figurehead nowadays with a huge family of other Santas that actually get the job done, including Arthur who is Santa's youngest son.

This is the first Sony film collaboration with Aardman, the award-winning animation company previously only known for stop-motion films like Chicken Run and Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit. Voices in Arthur Christmas are performed by James McAvoy, Hugh Laurie, Bill Nighy, Jim Broadbent, Imelda Staunton, and Ashley Jensen and the movie was directed by Sarah Smith. Rated PG, the soundtrack features the song Santa Claus is Comin' to Town by teen heart throb singer Justin Bieber from his new album Under the Mistletoe.

With such a hilarious release in theaters right now, it's hard to believe that this is not the only holiday themed entertainment being offered by Sony Pictures Animation this season. Earlier this month Sony released its The Smurfs Limited Edition 3-disc Holiday Blu-Ray & DVD set that includes The Smurfs: A Christmas Carol, a special mini yuletide movie, as well a first-ever two screen interactive option called Smurf-O-Vision that allows viewers to watch the Blu-Ray version and interact with The Smurfs simultaneously on a second device such as an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch.

Thanks to the motion picture brand, I am excited to be hosting another Mommy Blog Expert - Sony Pictures Animation holiday giveaway. This time you have a chance at winning of some official Arthur Christmas movie merchandise direct from the studio. Read on for details and enter to win now by leaving a comment below as Christmas is just around the corner.
