The Polar Express Synopsis
Tom Hanks produces and stars in this screen adaptation of the beloved children's book of the same name written by Jumanji author Chris Van Allsburg. Polar Express tells the story of a boy who maintains his belief in Santa Claus despite the teasing of his more cynical friends. The boy's conviction is rewarded one Christmas Eve when a steam train, guided by Hanks, appears in front of his house and carries him and his disbelieving friends off to the North Pole. Robert Zemeckis is onboard to produce and possibly direct.
