What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Elliot the Littlest Reindeer is an animated underdog story about a miniature horse who dreams of pulling Santa's sleigh. When Blitzen announces his retirement, Elliot (voiced by Josh Hutcherson) decides to try out for the open spot on Santa's team, despite being much smaller than the other reindeer. With the help of his goat friend, Hazel (Samantha Bee), Elliot trains and enters the tryouts. But when his friends back home are in danger, Elliot is faced with a difficult choice: save his friends or follow his dreams. Morena Baccarin, John Cleese, and Martin Short also lend their voices to the cast. Expect some rude humor and insults, but overall this looks like a family-friendly Christmas story.
