Netflix's upcoming Santa origin story looks absolutely magical

Not to get ahead of ourselves, but we're excited.

We might be at the start of spooky season with Halloween not far away.

But the weeks seem to be just rolling into each other and we'll soon enough find ourselves all cosied up and ready to get into the festive spirit.

On top of sitting down to watch our fave Christmas classics, each year usually brings a selection of new Christmas films to indulge in.

One such offering this year comes out November 24 on Netflix, and it looks absolutely magical.

A Boy Called Christmas gives the legend of Santa Claus a new origin story that follows him in his childhood as he sets off into the snow in search of his father.


While the trailer doesn't give a whole lot away about the plot, it gives some insight into the movie's budget.

The CGI work looks wonderful, meaning the glimpses we get of the film's winter wonderland look realistic and vivid. There's also a great cast that includes big names like Kristen Wiig, Stephen Merchant and Sally Hawkins, while Harry Potter alums Maggie Smith and Jim Broadbent add even more magic.

We're getting major HP and Narnia vibes from the trailer, so it definitely looks like a must-watch for families this Christmas.
