Movie Info

Based on the bestselling book, The Legend of the Candy Cane is an inspirational animated Christmas story brimming with Christian virtues. A stranger named John Sonneman and the young Matt, who has recently lost his parents, journey to the sleepy prairie town of West Sage in the company of a talking horse and a mountain goat that's afraid of heights. The newcomers' tempestuous acceptance into the small community effects positive change in the lives of themselves, the townspeople, and even the animals. As John Sonneman prepares to open a candy shop, he bestows a small but priceless gift on a now-motherless girl named Lucy--a red and white striped, peppermint candy cane replete with Christian symbolism. Bright animation, engaging Christian popular and jazz songs, and a timeless message about hope and the power of the individual make this a modern Christmas classic. DVD features include a "making of" segment featuring storyboards in progress and interviews with stars like Florence Henderson, Tom Bosley, and Malcolm-Jamal Warner; a discussion of how animation is done; and four songs--"I Think I Know," "Sleigh Ride," "View from My Window," and "Candy Cane Song." (All ages) --Tami Horiuchi
