Netflix-produced animated feature, Klaus won the BAFTA for best animated feature. The film was in the race against Walt Disney Animation Studios’s Frozen 2, Disney-Pixar’s Toy Story 4, and Aardman Animation’s A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon.
Directed by Sergio Pablos and producer Jinko Gotoh, Klaus recently took home the animated feature prize at the Annie Awards.
The story is about Jesper (with the English voice of Jason Schwartzman), a spoiled child’s journey to build a post office from scratch in the small and icy town of Smeerensburg to learn to look for life without the help of his father, head of the Royal Postal Academy. This ultimatum will take you to meet a stocky carpenter with a white beard called Klaus (J.K. Simmons), with which a postal delivery system will begin.
Klaus is an emotional Christmas story which made viewers all across the globe, including the British academics fall in love.
