A new teaser trailer for the family holiday flick Arthur Christmas has gone online. It’s not as charming as the first teaser trailer and reminds me a lot of Disney’s recent holiday special Prep & Landing where the elves are soldiers in Santa’s army. That’s right, kids. Only with military might can you get your presents. Since the flick comes from Aardman (the folks behind Wallace and Gromit), I’ll stay excited for it, and I’d certainly rather see this animated family flick during the holidays than the atrocious-looking Happy Feet Two.
Hit the jump to check out the teaser. The film features the voices of James McAvoy, Hugh Laurie, Jim Broadbent, Bill Nighy, and Imelda Staunton. Arthur Christmas opens in 3D on November 23rd.

Here’s the synopsis for Arthur Christmas:
‘So how does Santa deliver all those presents in one night?’ The answer: Santa’s exhilarating, ultra-high-tech operation hidden beneath the North Pole. But this year, Santa’s son Arthur has an urgent mission that must be completed before Christmas morning dawns.
