Sony Pictures Animation and Aardman Animation have teamed up this holiday season to bring you Arthur Christmas, a wonderful and unique new holiday tale that brings Christmas up to speed with the 21st Century. This 3D animated adventure centers on Arthur (James McAvoy), the bungling youngest son of Santa Claus (Jim Broadbent), who works in the Letters department at the North Pole, far away from the high-tech Christmas operation run by Santa's oldest son, Steve (Hugh Laurie). However, even with all of the technology in the world at their disposal, one child was missed and didn't get a present, which causes Arthur to spring into action and deliver the last present before the sun rises on Christmas Day.
I recently had the pleasure of chatting with Hugh Laurie, who enjoyed stepping out of the House world to voice Steve, where he got to use his normal speaking voice, for a change. Take a look at my exclusive video interview with Hugh Laurie below.
