Movie Info

Santa doesn't want to retire, but rules are rules and he must train someone to replace him. The lucky winner, to be chosen from among millions of children, must be named Nicholas, be an orphan and have a pure heart. On the other side of the planet, there is a little boy who is a perfect match, but his lack of self-confidence and fear of heights make him a poor contestant. Will Santa agree to step down, and help his apprentice take his place?

Critic Reviews for Santa's Apprentice (L'apprenti Pere Noel)

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

Bright, amiable traditional animation with an old-school flavour and solid storytelling.

November 10, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

So, an Australian gem? Not quite. It's more a feelgood diversion than an all-time classic.

November 9, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Fresh take on familiar holiday themes; some bullying.

February 16, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

I'm not sure why Santa is portrayed as such as a schmuck early on and this is part of the reason why I think kids will be sitting there with a blank stare on their face.

With its simple yet elegant 2D animation and festive spirit, Santa's Apprentice is an Aussie Christmas movie for families looking for sweetness and old fashion morals in their holiday movie going experience.

November 10, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Good movies for very young kids are few and far between, but this sweet Australian-French animation is well worth the ticket price for the under 10s.
