Launched this week, Arthur Christmas Movie Storybook is available in the App Store for iPhone and iPad and features several fun in-app activities as well as exclusive content from the animated movie Arthur Christmas from Aardman for Sony Pictures Animation, which hit theaters last week.
While the story reveals the incredible, never-before-seen answer to every child’s question regarding how Santa delivers all those presents in one night, it goes deeper into a bigger story. The main plot of the book is a Christmas classic in that it follows a family that is trying to figure out who will take over the family business that has been passed down through many generations. The unlikely hero, Arthur, the least capable Claus, begins the adventure of a lifetime when the high-tech sorting fails and leaves one present behind. He goes rogue and takes his hilarious Grandsanta and giftwrapping-obsessed elf Bryony along for the hilarious and amazing experience.
Beyond the story, the Arthur Christmas Movie Storybook features several activities including “Make Arthur Look Like Santa” where readers can dress Arthur up with funny Santa beards, mustaches and eyebrows, and a “Countdown to Christmas Meter” that tracks time remaining until Christmas down to the second.
Available in the Apple App Store for $3.99, the storybook features original content from the feature film, including images and character voices, and parents and their children can experience the adventure before or after seeing the movie in the box office. For those wanting to get into the holiday spirit, this is a perfect storybook to share with the family.
