“Welcome To The Jingle“
Netflix has just released the first trailer for their upcoming animated Christmas-flick ‘Klaus‘, which tells a new original story on the origins of Christmas and Santa Claus. The film will have a short theatrical run in the US from November 8 and will be available on Netflix from November 15.
When Jesper (Jason Schwartzman) distinguishes himself as the postal academy’s worst student, he is stationed on a frozen island above the Arctic Circle, where the feuding locals hardly exchange words let alone letters. Jesper is about to give up when he finds an ally in local teacher Alva (Rashida Jones), and discovers Klaus (Oscar® winner J.K. Simmons), a mysterious carpenter who lives alone in a cabin full of handmade toys. These unlikely friendships return laughter to Smeerensburg, forging a new legacy of generous neighbours, magical lore and stockings hung by the chimney with care.
The animated holiday comedy is directed by Despicable Me co-creator Sergio Pablos, and co-stars Joan Cusack (Toy Story 4), Will Sasso (The Three Stooges) and Norm Macdonald (The Orville). It is a production by Netflix in partnership with SPA Studios and Atresmedia Cine.
