Elf Jr.

About

Buddy, a young orphan, crawls into Santa's bag and is transported to the North Pole, where the would-be elf is raised, unaware he is actually human. Buddy’s enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to discover the truth and he embarks on a journey to discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh reality that his father is on the naughty list and his brother doesn't even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas! Take a classic Christmas film, add some Broadway tunes, and you’ve got the recipe for a holiday treat for the whole family.
