Netflix is getting back into the Christmas business (following its fun The Christmas Chronicles starring Kurt Russell as Santa Claus) with an animated feature called simply Klaus – which tells the origin story of the jolly red-suited one. Klaus will premiere on Netflix on November 15th.
The trailer suggests it will be a fun romp – and we can all use one of those during the hectic holiday season. A selection of first look photos has also been released.
Last year about this time, BOOM! Studios announced that superstar comics writer Grant Morrison would be working on a project for them. Hands up anyone who immediately thought, ‘Santa Claus!’ (Didn’t think so…)
But yes, Grant Morrison’s BOOM! Studios project is Klaus – ‘an all-ages fantasy starring one of the most well-known figures in the world.’ Seriously! (And it sounds pretty cool, too!) Follow the jump for details.
