Netflix has confirmed the all-star cast for its upcoming festive film That Christmas.

The project represents writer Richard Curtis's first animated movie and the directorial debut of renowned animation veteran Simon Otto.

The film stars Brian Cox as Santa, Fiona Shaw (Ms. Trapper), Jodie Whittaker (Mrs. Williams) and Bill Nighy (Bill) as the residents of a charming seaside town where things turn upside down one Christmas.

Also on the cast are Lolly Adefope, Alex Macqueen, Katherine Parkinson, Sindhu Vee, India Brown, Zazie Hayhurst, Sienna Sayer, Jack Wisniewski, Rosie Cavaliero, Paul Kaye, Guz Khan, Andy Nyman, Kuhu Agarwal, Bronte Smith, Freddie Spry, Ava Talbot and Rhys Darby.

"Becoming an animator had been on my Christmas wish list ever since I was a child and watching animated movies was one of the biggest Christmas traditions in my family," said Otto, known for his work on the How To Train Your Dragon trilogy.

"But never could I have imagined that one day I would get the chance to direct a Christmas film written by the one-and-only Richard Curtis and collaborate with some of the most iconic voice talents.

"Watching this cast bring life to these heart-warmingly funny tales and infuse them with the magic of animation is truly a dream come true. I hope That Christmas becomes a cherished tradition for audiences worldwide."

The film will be released on the streaming service "later this year". body check tags ::
