Christmas is just around the corner, and what better way to warm up for the festive season than with Netflix’s modern 2D masterpiece, Klaus? In case you haven’t caught Sergio Pablos’s artistic origin story for the globally beloved toymaker — streaming now — perhaps this charming clip will get you in the mood for some holiday viewing!
In the clip, young postman Jesper (voiced by Jason Schwartzman) welcomes Klaus (J.K. Simmons) to his new workshop, and gives him the energetic spiel for his idea to make Christmas even more magical than ever.
This past week, Klaus received seven Annie Award nominations , including best indie picture, directing (Sergio Pablos), storyboarding (Pablos), production design (Szymon Biernacki, Marcin Jakubowski), character design (Torsten Schrank) character animation (Sergio Martins) and editorial (Pablo Garcia Revert). The movie is also nominated for two Goya Awards (Best Animated Film and Best Song).
