The Weinstein Company has picked up all North America distribution rights to the upcoming animated Christmas film Niko & the Way to the Stars. According to Variety, the film will be presented in 3-D when it arrives in theaters.

The story follows the adventures of the little reindeer Niko and his forest animal friends. He must join forces with them in order to save Santa and the other reindeer from the notoriously evil Black Wolf and his gang of henchmen.

The film will be released next year during the holiday season.
