Super Monsters Save Christmas

Christmas at Pitchfork Pines is on the line when Santa’s reindeer suddenly goes missing. Can the Super Monsters find them in time for the Man in the Red Suit to deliver gifts to the naughty and nice? Fans of the American-Canadian animated series about a group of preschoolers whose parents are famous monsters won’t be able to take their eyes off of cute colorful characters Drac Shadows, Frankie Mass, Zoe Walker, and others. The movie also scores points with moms and dads for its heartfelt message: “The most important thing about celebrating the holidays isn’t how you celebrate it, but who you celebrate it with.”

The Knight Before Christmas

Hopeless romantics will swoon over this holiday rom-com about high school science teacher Brooke (Vanessa Hudgens) whose jaded beliefs about love are challenged when she meets Sir Cole Christopher Frederick Lyons (Josh Whitehouse), a medieval knight magically transported to modern-day Ohio by an evil sorceress. Teens will squeal over the playful banter between Brooke and Cole. But they will also learn the values of keeping an open mind and heart and extending oneself to others. “A knight is sworn to valor and virtue,” reminds Cole. “Will give aid to those who seek it.”

A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby

In this third installment of the Christmas Prince series, Queen Amber (Rose McIver) and King Richard (Ben Lamb) of Aldovia are expecting their firstborn when a centuries-old document for a sacred truce goes missing. The royals rush to find this all-important treaty before midnight of Christmas Eve—or their baby will be cursed. Part romance, comedy, and mystery, the film also highlights the importance of family in times of trouble. Amber calls on her US-based dad for support (and bagels) and King Richard is a source of comfort to his anxious wife. “We’ll leave no stone unturned,” he assures.
