Classic kids’ movies: The Snowman and Father Christmas DVDs

The Snowman and Father Christmas DVDs (Classic Gifts)

released in new editions for Christmas – Launch Date: 7th November 2011 Price: £9.99 RRP each.

One winter morning a little boy named James wakes up to find that everything outside has turned snow white. Overjoyed he rushes downstairs and out into the garden where he begins to build a snowman…

The Snowman has been a perennial Christmas favourite since its release in 1982. Based on Raymond Briggs’ best-selling children’s book, it is the tale of a little boy whose snowman comes to life in the night and takes him on a series of magical adventures which end with a meeting with Father Christmas. One of the most charming films ever made, its gentle simplicity coupled with the original illustrations make it utterly poignant, and is loved by children and parents alike.

For Christmas 2011, Universal Pictures (UK) is re-releasing this classic DVD on 7th November, making it a perfect gift that will be revisited every year.

With 1.4 million copies of the DVD sold since 2007, The Snowman continues to delight; the stage show tours the UK every year, and in 2011 will run from November 2011 to January 2012.

Also available this November on DVD, is Raymond Briggs’ Father Christmas. From the makers of The Snowman, this is a story of what it is really like to be Father Christmas. The grumpy but loveable Father Christmas is now the star of a hilarious animated film. After his blooming marvellous holiday, Father Christmas and his reindeer are up and away on their whirlwind Christmas delivery tour. The voice of Father Christmas is provided by actor and comedian Mel Smith.
