PLOT:


via Hallmark Press Release:

“Northpole” tells the charming tale about a reporter who, with the help of her son and his teacher, recaptures the joy of the holiday season and in the process saves Christmas.

As the first full-length, two-hour original holiday movie that Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Cards, Inc. have created together, “Northpole” is a magically thrilling holiday adventure never been seen before on the network that will employ state-of-the-art CGI technology taking viewers right into the enchanting and vibrant world of Santa Claus and Christmas magic.

Santa’s magical home, Northpole, is real and greater than anyone has ever imagined, yet this wondrous place is in trouble as a loss of togetherness and Christmas spirit spreads across the globe. Who can help save the cherished traditions of Christmas? One young boy might be able to if he can convince his overly protective mom to open up and rediscover the magic every holiday season bestows. With the help of his teacher and a mischievous elf from Northpole, Kevin is bound and determined to win over his mom and prove that one small voice can change the hearts of many in this big world.

Tiffani Thiessen plays reporter “Chelsea” whose son “Kevin” (played by newcomer Max Charles) takes it upon himself to reinvigorate the spirit of Christmas. The boy’s efforts are powered by free-spirited Elf from the North, “Clementine” (played by Bailee Madison, one of entertainment’s most popular young actors) and by Kevin’s teacher, Ryan (“Cougar Town” star Josh Hopkins), who believes anything is possible when one dedicates heart and soul to the effort.

American Idol winner Candice Glover will portray Chelsea's friend, Josephine, and sing two songs, "Oh Christmas Tree" and "Silent Night".

  4. Wonderful movie! I'm hoping next years NORTHPOLE 2 will be even more exciting. Candice Glover is a wonder singer and really brought the Christmas cheer to this soon to be a holiday favorite movie. Loved Tiffani Amber Thiessen, Josh Hopkins, Bailee Madison, Max Charles in this movie. They really brought their characters to life. I know that Lori Loughlin will definitely be a great addition next year to NORTHPOLE 2. She too is a wonderful actress and knows how to tell a story. Going to watch this one again with the whole family on Christmas Eve!!!!

  5. Clementine was a great character, so hopefully she will be a common thread through the sequel. The place "Northpole" looked beautiful - we just didn't get to spend enough time there… Again maybe that will be followed up on in the sequel. I really like the idea of the sequel involving a "magical" hotel.

  6. TOTALLY disappointed with this movie!
    After all the EXTRA pre-airing hype...with fabulous scenery and effects...it gave the impression that there was a lot more fascinating scenes to come.......as well as a VERY imaginative and unique plot.
    Instead, dull scenery....dull plot.
    .
    But hype is hype....where it begins and ends.

    1. I agree! Terrible movie, very dull plot, very dull acting, seemed like it was all to sell things for Hallmark store. I sure hope that that Northpole 2 has a better story line that this dud.
