The Search For Santa Paws Review & Giveaway...

 
There is a new Disney movie out TODAY that you absolutely must see....The Search For Santa Paws!





DISNEY’S THE SEARCH FOR SANTA PAWS is an exciting and uplifting movie from director Robert Vince about the power of giving and the true meaning of Christmas in the tradition of Disney’s classic holiday tales. This big city adventure for the whole family reveals the how the legendary friendship of Santa Claus and Santa Paws began.

The film follows in the tradition of Disney’s classic holiday tales with a heartwarming story about the power of giving and the true meaning of Christmas. An exciting prequel, the movie allows kids of all ages to discover how the legendary friendship of Santa Claus and Santa Paws began – as it is the inspiring original film (in a timeline it precedes 2009’s Santa Buddies: The Legend of Santa Paws).

In the movie, when Santa and his new best friend, Paws, discover that the boys and girls of the world have lost the spirit of the season, they take a trip to New York City. But after Santa loses his memory, it’s up to Paws, a faithful orphan named Quinn (America’s Got Talent’s Kaitlyn Maher), her new friend Will (The Game Plan’s Madison Pettis) and a wonderful group of magical talking dogs to save St. Nick and show the world what Christmas is really all about. Do you believe in Santa Paws? Experiencing this sure-to-be holiday classic, full of fun, adventure and a carrying the timeless messages of the holidays, with surely delight the entire family!

A&W are so excited about Christmas so when I received Santa Paws in the mail they were practically trembling with excitement to watch this one.  Who can resist the cover??  A snowy scene.  Adorable puppies.  SANTA!!  A&W were sold immediately.  We hunkered down that very afternoon to watch and I will say that my four year olds sat transfixed for the entire movie.  I think A&W particularly liked the scenes with  Paws....between him talking and the adorableness they could not get enough.    I will say that one of my sons tends to get a bit emotional in movies (we call it having empathy!!) and he told me a few times he was "getting a little empathy".  There are just a few spots where more sensitive children might get a bit emotional (for us it was when Quinn the orphan sang "Who Will Sing To Me", scenes with the "mean lady" at the orphanage and (without giving too much of the plot away!) some scenes near the end where it was unclear (at least to "W") if there would be a happy ending. 

Despite the "empathy" parts, the movie delighted A&W and mom too.  The special effects were, as you come to expect from Disney, magical.  I felt that Santa was very convincing and that the dogs actually looked as if they were speaking...nicely done!!  On top of being big fans of the movie A&W were really into the bonus features as well which include a music video (by Disney Star Debby Ryan which is super fun), an adorable pop-up story and more.  A&W are particularly into the pop-up story which is really neat....it is in the fashion of a pop-up book and the graphics are really amazing.  We have watched that story several times (it also has a "bad guy" which in my house is a must these days!).

The Search For Santa Paws has helped get us in the Christmas spirit and has earned a spot on our Christmas favorites list!  Pick up a copy of this Blu-Ray/DVD combo today....
