SANTA MONICA, CA – A young reindeer with silly ambitions of becoming an expert flyer like his father sets off on a fantastic adventure when the CGI animated tale The Flight Before Christmas lands on DVD October 28th from Genius Products and The Weinstein Company.

When Niko sneaks out beyond the safety of Home Valley to practice his flying, he unwittingly endangers the herd as the notoriously mean Black Wolf follows him home. Before it’s too late, Niko must join forces with his forest animal friends to save Santa and the reindeer from the Black Wolf and become a Christmas hero…just like his father!

Featuring all-star voice talent including teen sensation Emma Roberts (Nancy Drew, Aquamarine) and funny-man Norm MacDonald (“The Norm Show,” “Saturday Night Live”), The Flight Before Christmas is a heartwarming yuletide tale filled with colorful endearing characters such as Julius the flying squirrel and Wilma the cheeky weasel.

A festive addition to the holiday library that the entire family can enjoy, The Flight Before Christmas DVD will be available with special packaging for the suggested retail price of $19.97.


A young reindeer named Niko dreams about flying like his father who he believes is a member of Santa’s famous Flying Forces. Despite suffering from severe vertigo, he sneaks out of his home to take flying lessons from his friend Julius, a clumsy flying squirrel. Soon after, Niko and Julius learn that Santa and his reindeer are in serious trouble so the pair gather their forest friends and head North to save the day.
