The Snowman and the Snowdog Review and Giveaway

The Snowman and the Snowdog is released today on DVD and Blu Ray.  If you missed it's first screening in the run up to Christmas last year then you missed something really magical and now is your chance to experience this short animated movie which continues the classic Snowman tale.

The main feature on the disc is 23 minutes long but there are lots of additional features to enjoy.  The 23 minute movie is very true in style to the original Snowman animation but with slightly brighter colours, the hand-drawn style flickers in and out an gives the Snowman, the Snowdog and their friends a gentle softness that makes it a really enjoyable watch.  The movie is more or less silent but with atmospheric music and the occasional sound or voice to add specific effect.

The story starts on quite a sad tone, Billy and his Mum have to move house and then they lose their family pet.  Billy discovers a box full of snowman kit under the floorboards and, next time it snows, he builds a snowman, and with a spare bit of snow he also makes a dog to look like his old friend.  Then the magic does its work.

When the Snowman and the Snowdog come to life they take Billy to compete in a race at the North Pole.  At the end of the night, Billy goes home to bed and wakes the next morning to find a surprise.

The Snowman and the Snowdog is a really magical story that will almost certainly become a classic part of Christmas.
