Anna Kendrick is Noelle Kringle
Disney is here for the holidays with a North-Pole inspired comedy reminiscent of The Santa Claus movies. This time, Anna Kendrick plays Noelle Kringle, the daughter of Santa Claus, whose task is to help her brother Nick (Bill Hader) prepare to take his father’s place in the sleigh. When Nick decides to run away to escape his responsibilities (and become a yoga instructor), all of Christmas is threatened and and it is up to Noelle to track him down in time to save the day. It’s a ‘jolly’ and upbeat comedy that is sure to put anyone in the Christmas spirit.
