People Are Calling A Boy Called Christmas 'Magical'

We can't wait to watch this.

Christmas is a time for snuggling with loved ones on the sofa with a hot chocolate and putting on your fave festive films.

But a new movie called A Boy Called Christmas has just come out and people are already in love with its magic.

Watch the trailer below:

A Boy Called Christmas is based on a book of the same name by Matt Haig and is the origin story to how Father Christmas came to be. The movie follows Nicholas, a boy on a mission (with his pet mouse) to find his father who is searching for the mystical land of the elves.
