One crisp, winter morning, a young boy wakes up to find a thick blanket of snow has covered the ground as far as the eye can see. Filled with excitement, the boy decides to build a snowman using a tangerine for his nose, coal for his buttons and eyes, and tops him off with a hat and scarf. Later that night, at the stroke of midnight, the snowman comes to life! The young boy and the snowman embark on a magical adventure of discovery where the snowman explores the young boy's world and in return he takes him flying to his home in the North Pole. Upon arriving at the North Pole, the two join a party as the guests of honor to a very special person. Based on Raymond Briggs' book, The Snowman is a family classic for generations to enjoy.

No talking in this movie. Good music. Thought my 5 year old would not like it with no talking but she really enjoyed it and wanted to watch again.

Wonderful Christmastime story, which has become a tradition in our household ever since the first time we saw it in 2011. The soundtrack and colorful animations are memorable! What a great story!!

Recommended by a friend, this has become a staple of Christmas time viewing since I first saw it. Beautiful illustrations based on the picture book by Raymond Briggs are paired with an incredibly ethereal soundtrack that will stay in your head for days. Utterly magical whether you are still tiny or all grown up.
