Buddy the Elf is transported to the North Pole as a toddler and raised to adulthood among Santa’s elves. Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn’t fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father, Walter Hobbs. His half-brother Michael and he are left with the job of saving Christmas by raising the Christmas spirit.
Ice Age, Frozen
Since not everyone celebrates Christmas, Ice Age and Frozen are perfect winter options. They are not holiday themed, but still, have a winter theme to them that will make you feel nice and warm in your house watching the movie as its cold outside.
Ice Age is about a sloth named Sid, a mammoth named Manny, and a saber-toothed tiger named, Diego who all go on a quest to return a human baby back to its family, showing that animals are compassionate and loving creatures.
Frozen tells the story of a fearless princess who sets off on a journey alongside a rugged iceman, his loyal reindeer, and a naive snowman to find her estranged sister, whose icy powers have inadvertently trapped their kingdom in eternal winter.
