16 16x16 The Snowman - Sequel!

The Snowman is the most beautiful silent pencil drawn (old school) Christmas animation, we Brits grew up watching it at Christmas.

Iím not sure how popular it is elsewhere but I strongly recommend you take 26 minutes out of your day and watch it here -

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgTpoy91nWo

You wonít be disappointed its very Christmassy, the lovely musical piece kicks in after 16 minutes.

The BIG NEWS is that there is a sequel being released this year for its 30th Anniversary which I canít wait to see! Iím amazed its 30 years old.

We used to watch this on the last day before the Christmas holidays at primary school! Years since I've seen it "We're walking in the air..."

christmasjingles has shown a merry dispositionchristmasjingles has shown a merry disposition
I had never heard of it until reading about it on posts on Christmas forums over the past couple/few years. I found it at Walmart a couple years ago and bought it. It is a wonderful movie and even though I have not watched it yet this year, the song from it has been in my head for the past couple days. I guess it will be a while before the sequel becomes available in the US.

The Snowman is very popular here in Norway too!
It's a tradition to see it every year ♥ and beautiful music!
We also have the book!

I never realized The Snowman was made so long ago until recently. I bought it for my wife on DVD a few years ago although I must confess I haven't watched it in a few years. I'll need to have another viewing before the sequel. I hope it's good although I can't imagine it coming close to the brilliance of the original.
