People Are Loving Netflix's Latest Christmas Movie 'Klaus'
But one that's standing out for viewers is the streaming service's only animated offering for 2019: Klaus.
Klaus - directed by Despicable Me co-creator Sergio Pablos - follows Jesper, a rejected postal academy student who lives on a frozen island above the Arctic Circle where grumpy locals barely exchange glances.
Jesper soon meets local teacher Alva and Klaus, a mysterious carpenter who lives alone in a cabin full of handmade toys. Forging unlikely friendships, Jesper and his local community soon find the spirit of Christmas.
Starring Joan Cusack, Will Sasso and Norm Macdonald, the film landed on Netflix on Friday 15th November, and we're not exaggerating when we say that people are RAVING about it.
A search of the film's hashtag pulls up hundreds of tweets, praising the festive flick for everything from its amazing 2D animation to its heartwarming narrative.
