Lord Shen has an evil plan to conquer China, but Po takes it upon himself to save the country from destruction and mayhem.

  • Directors: Sergio Pablos

If you are yearning to watch a good comedy-drama film with your family then Klaus would be my top recommendation on Netflix. It’s an animated film and the plot revolves around Santa Claus. I know, it sounds amateurish, but thankfully, the film manages to escape the familiar trope. In fact, Klaus offers an alternate origin story of Santa Claus, different from the historical take of Saint Nicholas of Myra. The movie is set in a fictional 19th-century world where a postman working on an island makes friends with a toymaker. What happens after that would make you laugh and absorb you into the story. In a way, it’s a Christmas film, but with a great storyline and fresh voices. So go ahead and watch Kalus on Netflix with your family and you won’t be disappointed.
