The Christmas Chronicles 2 (2020)

A year on from the first film, Kate Pierce – now a cynical teen – is unhappy spending a family Christmas in Mexico with her mum’s new boyfriend and his son, Jack.

Kate decides to run away but Jack follows and they are both unexpectedly transported to the North Pole.

A mysterious, naughty, troublemaker elf then threatens to ruin Christmas and Kate must help Santa and Mrs Claus save festivities yet again.

While it's missing some of the magic of the original, the sequel still serves up a sweet second helping of holiday cheer that makes the most of its marvellously matched leads.

Arthur Christmas (2011)

The perfect Christmas movie for kids, families, and all others who adore Christmas.

As we see the high-tech organisation behind Santa's Christmas deliveries and his extremely disciplined elf helpers, the movie helps point out that after all Christmas is all about tradition.
