Alien Xmas Update: In the twinkling of an eye-rolling Alien Xmas trailer, one can clearly see Baby Walrus and Arctic Puffin hanging at the North Pole, just as they did when they wished Buddy the luck of the Elf on his way to New York City.
Alien Xmas occurs when a kleptomaniac alien race tries to steal the Earth’s gravitational force so that they can easily take everything on Earth. X is a young alien who learns that in a world full of things, things are not meant to be taken, but given. The story is based on a 2006 Chiodo Brothers book with the same name. In the trailer, Santa Claus begins to tell the story of the first Christmas in the village, which quickly descends from the railway into the legend of a foreign holiday.
Alien Xmas is an official under Jon Favreau and was directed by Stephen Chiodo and produced by Edward Chiodo. Charles Chiodo also rode as a major producer. In addition to their work on Killer Klowns from Outer Space and Elf, the brothers have numerous stop motion credits for their names including, Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, Tim Burton’s Hansel and Gretel, as well as Vincent, Critters, Ernest Scared Stupid, and Team America: World Police. “We were bitten by an insect early in the morning,” said Charles Chiodo when asked how they got into the entertainment industry.
Alien Xmas: Update
Alien Xmas is set to launch for the first time on November 20, exclusively on Netflix. The book is currently available for purchase, and one might think that Chiodo Brothers will end up selling very little when everyone looks at its cartoon style of storytelling that tells a story on a small screen. You can check out the first Alien Xmas trailer above, thanks to the official Netflix YouTube channel.
Jon Favreau is best known for delivering the words of Baby Walrus and Arctic Puffin to the Elf, while the Chiodo Brothers held a stop-motion animation.
It is unclear how long the North Pole characters will stay on Alien Xmas at this time. I have been trying to work with these guys from Chiodo Brothers, who have made a stop-motion on the Elf, it has taken more than 15 years, only because the business model has changed. Happily, the creative teams were able to come together and pay for their first project at the same time.
