Narrated by Pharrell Williams, Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch, released on November 9, 2018, elaborates on Dr. Seuss' classic book about the Christmas-hating Grinch, voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch. The new take on this classic tale takes you on an adventure to steal Christmas from the Who’s in Whoville.

You’re reintroduced to your favorite childhood characters like the mean Mr. Grinch and kind hearted Cindy Lou Who, as well as new characters like Fred the oversized reindeer and Cindy Lou’s trusted friend Goopert.

The animation adaptation is filled with beautiful and bright illustrations and artistry accompanied by music fitting of each scene. The characters were well developed and each had a more in-depth background story than in previous versions of the story. Everything for the scenery to the characters just comes to life. It is a wonderful and magical Christmas tale that everyone should see.
