Klaus: trailer

Netflix’s first animated feature film, from the co-creator of Despicable Me tells an ‘origin’ story* on Santa Claus.

Klaus is conceived and directed by Sergio Pablos with voice talent including Jason Schwartzman, JK Simmons, Rashida Jones, Norm MacDonald and Joan Cusack.

* not sure about any references to St. Nicholas nor Coca Cola’s popular red Santa!

It launches November 15 on Netflix.

When Jesper (Jason Schwartzman) distinguishes himself as the postal academy’s worst student, he is stationed on a frozen island above the Arctic Circle, where the feuding locals hardly exchange words let alone letters. Jesper is about to give up when he finds an ally in local teacher Alva (Rashida Jones), and discovers Klaus (Oscar® winner J.K. Simmons), a mysterious carpenter who lives alone in a cabin full of handmade toys. These unlikely friendships return laughter to Smeerensburg, forging a new legacy of generous neighbors, magical lore and stockings hung by the chimney with care. An animated holiday comedy directed by Despicable Me co-creator Sergio Pablos, KLAUS co-stars Joan Cusack, Will Sasso and Norm Macdonald.

    Looks interesting, I wonder if the more dark side of the clip means that they will also include either Black Peter, Krampus or Belznickel in the tale, Santa looking after the good children and one of those 3 the bad.
