This is a cute movie about the beloved elephant King Babar, and his family. Babar's children and cousin Arthur write a letter to Father Christmas asking him to visit Celesteville. Rataxes the sneaky rhinoceros takes the letter out of the mailbox and eats it. So, Babar decides to try and find Father Christmas so he can personally deliver the message. Does he find him? My favorite characters are Rataxes the rhinoceros, because was just plain silly and he made me laugh, and Babar, because he was determined to find Father Christmas for the children of Celesteville. My favorite scene is Babar in the bathtub having a conversation with the mouse family. They were so cute. I rate this movie 5 out of 5 stars, because there is no violence, and I recommend this movie to everyone. Reviewed by Ny'asia Bell, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic, age 8.
Babar is a classic. The story shows kids that Santa Claus is celebrated differently in different cultures. Teaches that being polite and respectful is the best choice and you shouldn't try to cause problems. Also teaches that one should not give up and once you put your mind to doing something, like Babar, you should see it through. Visually it's very old-fashioned, which might not appeal to some kids who are used to more polished animation. A great holiday classic, fun way to introduce your kids to a vintage movie for the holidays.
In this delightful holiday tale, Babar's children write a letter to Father Christmas to ask him to visit Celesteville at Christmas. Their letter never arrives because it is stolen by Babar's arch-enemy, Rataxes the Rhinoceros. He wants all of Santa's toys for himself! Can Babar find Father Christmas and save the day for Celesteville?
