Co-written and directed by Robert Zemeckis, this heartwarming computer-animated holiday tale, based on Chris Van Allsburg's book, centers on a young boy whose belief in Santa Claus is beginning to waver. Lying awake on Christmas Eve, he hears the rumble of a locomotive outside his home. Boarding the train with a host of other children, he embarks on a thrilling adventure bound for the North Pole. Tom Hanks, Michael Jeter, Nona Gaye, Eddie Deezen, and Peter Scolari provide live-action performances that were later digitized. 100 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English. Two-disc set.
