Christmas is Here Again (2008) – By Jason S. Lockard

I love animation! So when I received the Mill Creek Entertainment release of "Christmas Is Here Again," in the mail, I was excited to see if this was going to be a Christmas classic or a Christmas clunker.

The film is about the evil Krad who has stolen Santa’s magic toy bag and thus making Santa’s Christmas visits to the children impossible. Over the years the world’s children forget all about Christmas. Now a little disabled but vibrant orphan girl named Sophiana joins forces with an elf in an adventure of a lifetime to save Christmas.

Christmas is here again boasts the voice talents of all-stars such as Jay Leno as The Narrarator, Andy Griffth as Santa, Ed Asner as Evil Krad, Shirley Jones, Kathy Bates, Brad Garrett, Norm MacDonald and more.

"Christmas Is Here Again" is like walking in a winter wonderland. We remember watching A Charlie Brown Christmas, Frosty the Snowman and How the Grinch stole Christmas the animation is remenisent of these classics. The film is more for children, adults may find it does not keep their attention; but the kids will love it! So I highly recommend you pick this up for your kids for next year.
