Watch how Santa and his friends save the North Pole from an evil elf named Belsnickel, played by Julian Dennison, who stole something which doesn’t belong to him in The Christmas Chronicles 2, but make sure you watch the first movie before you watch this one! Like most Christmas movies, The Christmas Chronicles 2  is family-friendly and has a happy ending. It is full of magical elves and magic in general with some fantastic special effects. Teddy (Judah Lewis) and Kate Pierce (Darby Camp) help save Christmas in the first movie, yet Lewis did not receive enough show time in this sequel, where he is mainly seen at the beginning and the end.  However, a bright spot was Kate’s potential stepbrother, Jack (Jahzir Bruno), who goes on an adventure with her to help save Christmas from the evil Belsnickel, but will they save it in time? I give this movie 4 out of 5 wincs.
