The origin story of Father Christmas is re-imagined in Gil Kenan’s live-action flick.

We follow a decidedly ordinary boy called Nikolas (nicknamed ‘Christmas’), who sets out on an extraordinary adventure with Miika the mouse, his witty rodent companion (voiced by Stephen Merchant) into the snowy north in search of his father who is on a quest to find the fabled elf village of Elfheim. It’s a dangerous trek and Nikolas faces many obstacles.

No spoilers here but it’s fair to say Nikolas goes on quite the journey, in more ways than one!

Boasting an incredible ensemble cast list ranging from Maggie Smith, Jim Broadbent, Kristen Wiig, Sally Hawkins, Toby Jones, Michiel Huisman and many more. Come and explore this magical Christmas tale with friends and family at the Odyssey this December!
