Triple bill of Christmas films. 'Arthur Christmas' (2011) is an animated family comedy featuring the voice talents of James McAvoy, Bill Nighy and Hugh Laurie. The film shows the inner workings of the high-tech operation run at the North Pole by Santa (Jim Broadbent) and his sons, which enables them to get all the world's presents delivered in just one night. But behind this slick and efficient machine are the disparate and dysfunctional members of Santa's family, including his cranky 136-year-old father, Grandsanta (Nighy), his devoted wife, Mrs Santa (Imelda Staunton), and his poles-apart sons, Steve (Laurie) and Arthur (McAvoy). 'The Smurfs: A Christmas Carol' (2011) is an animated take on Charles Dickens' celebrated Christmas story 'A Christmas Carol'. Grouchy Smurf (George Lopez), the Ebenezer Scrooge of the Smurf world, is a figure who hates the joy and merriment the festive period brings. Can a visitation from the Smurfs of Christmas Past (Melissa Sturm), Present (Fred Armisen) and Future (Gary Basaraba) change Grouchy's ways in time to stop the dastardly Gargamel (Hank Azaria)'s latest wicked plot from succeeding? 'The Swan Princess Christmas' (2012) is a story of a beautiful princess and her friends who attempt to foil a ne'er-do-well's plans to destroy Christmas. Princess Odette (Elle Deets) and her husband Derek (Yuri Lowenthal) are in the midst of preparing their kingdom for a Christmas feast to remember when their old enemy, Rothbart (Sean Wright), makes an unwelcome appearance. Can they get the better of him once again and ensure that the kingdom enjoys a merry Christmas?
