Movie Info

Emma Roberts lends her voice to this animated adventure about a young reindeer who longs to fly like the father he never met. Niko dreams of soaring amongst the clouds, but a severe case of vertigo has left his hoofs planted firmly on the ground. Perhaps with a few lessons from Julius, a Finnish flying squirrel, Niko will finally realize his dream of taking flight, and learn to take price in the fact that he's carrying on a ling-running family tradition. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for The Flight Before Christmas

Watching this on Christmas day is rather pointless considering all the superior animated/Christmas films available. The voice acting is OK but the animation is very clunky and wooden. It's your average kids movie with the comedy sidekicks, lessons to be learned and bad guys to be punished. I can't really say it was enjoyable, but it wasn't offensively bad either.
