“AY and Omoni are two very talented groundbreaking Actors and Producers who we have had been very fortunate to work with on varied projects; it was only a natural fit for this especially with 2 actors which such strong family values and family is very important to us at FilmOne,” Moses Babatope of FilmOne distribution said.
“Their inclusion as part of the cast for this movie portends great things for future collaboration between Nollywood and Hollywood.”
The movie is centred around Blitzen, one of Santa’s sleigh-pulling reindeers, announcing his retirement on December 21, giving a miniature horse three days to fulfil his lifelong dream of earning a spot on Santa’s sleigh during the North Pole try-outs in time for Christmas Eve.
Elliot, a determined miniature horse, travels to the North Pole with his pal Hazel the goat to win a spot on Santa’s celebrated sleigh team.
