The Night Before Christmas Review
The Night Before Christmas is a 1933 Disney Silly Symphony film. It is a clichéd Silly Symphony.
This is the sequel to ‘Santa’s Workshop’ and it is better than that movie, but only slightly. Santa is much less present and less annoying which was pleasant to see. But still the elves are replaced with children and the children are just not that memorable. And of course you’ve got that awful chimney scene which is so racist.
I found The Night Before Christmas to be a pleasant and solid film, but again nowhere near as charming or as magical as a Christmas movie should be really. Its animation and score are solid, but far from great and the overall film is too long for its very slight and ultimately uneventful plot.
The Night Before Christmas is a solid sequel with some pleasant moments, but not enough charm and it is overlong for its slight plot.
