I love Christmas, and I love Christmas movies. My daughter loves movies with adorable talking dogs, so we were both thrilled to get the chance to review Santa Paws 2: The Santa Pups from the creators of the Disney Buddies movies! It comes out on Disney Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and HD Digital on November 20, 2012.
Santa Paws 2: The Santa Pups stars a new litter of adorable Great Pyrenees puppies, the children of Santa Paws, who we met in the 2009 Disney movie Santa Buddies, and his wife Mrs. Paws. Their three puppies are Hope, the daring tomboy, Jingle, the diva who loves to sing despite not being able to carry a tune, Charity who is girly but self-centered and yet to learn the meaning of her name, and Noble, the mischievous only brother and self-appointed leader who is distinguished by a cheeky black spot around his eye.
After their mischievous play around Santa’s Workshop results in a lecture on being responsible, the pups decide to prove they can grant Christmas wishes all by themselves. With help from a magic crystal from the North Pole, they travel to Pineville USA, the town that Santa identified as having the most Christmas spirit in the country.
They’re sure they’ll find some great wishes to grant there and at first they do, but when an unhappy boy wishes that Christmas would go away forever, everything starts going wrong. Fortunately for the pups, Mrs. Claus has also traveled to Pineville to experience the Christmas spirit herself. She and the pups team up to find a way to reverse the spell before Christmas is lost forever!
Kaitlyn and I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, and it has such a happy ending. It will fill every viewer with the Christmas spirit!
BUY IT NOW! Santa Paws 2: The Santa Pups makes a great gift for Disney movie fans, Buddies movie lovers, and anyone who would love a heartwarming, family-friendly movie to watch!
