A sequel. That's it. We'll bring it out on March 25, and we'll call it... Christmas 2! 

This is the delightful story of a master toymaker who discovers a magical kingdom of elves at the North Pole. There he is entrusted with special powers. But one of his elves goes to work for a greedy toy baron who wants to put Santa out of business.

This was one of my favorite Christmas movies growing up.  The story is great, and as fun as I remember it.  The cast is good and likable, expect for John  Lithgow's character, he's the bad guy so you aren't supposed to like him, but he's great in this.  I like how they began the story then moved it forward to the present.  It was a lot of fun to see it again after so many years.
