Aardman and Arthur Christmas

A little artwork for Arthur Christmas has popped up on the internets.

Sarah Smith and Barry Cook (Mulan) are directing from a script by Borat screenwriter Peter Baynham. ...

In July and August, I went through Sony Pictures Animation and chatted with some of the Arthur Christmas players. They told me the voice actors were cast, recording sessions were moving along, and a lot of the picture was up on boards and story reels.

In fact, they were a little nervous because story development was gliding along so well.

AC is a joint production of Sony and Aardman, and it hasn't gotten a lot of notice. But that should change next year when the release date looms up and the tub-thumping starts.
