Arthur Claus (voiced by James McAvoy) is the clumsy but good-hearted son of Father Christmas (Jim Broadbent). Working away in the Letters Office, he finds joy in replying to kids’ letters to Santa. His older brother Steve (Hugh Laurie), who is in line to be appointed as the new Santa, has defined the delivery of Christmas presents with military precision. After what is considered the best Christmas Eve present delivery ever, they discover that one child’s present was never delivered. Refusing to allow even one child to think Santa didn’t deliver her present, Arthur sets out on a mad-dash adventure with Grandsanta (Bill Nighy) to deliver the missing present.
