Leopoldo Gout and Susan Holden of Curious Pictures have directed an exciting new original animated holiday special entitled LITTLE SPIRIT: CHRISTMAS IN NEW YORK, which will air on NBC Wednesday, December 10 from 8-9 p.m. and will feature the voices of Danny DeVito, Lucy Liu, Freddy Rodriguez, Brian Williams and Brenda Song. The music is by Duncan Sheik with Christmas classics sung by Faith Hill. This unique program stylistically blends the look of traditional painting with contemporary 3-D technology -- creating an aesthetic that is both classic and innovative.
When a friendly cabbie (Danny DeVito) tells two young sisters the story of a boy named Leo who moved to Manhattan with his family, a magical adventure begins. While adjusting to the big city and enjoying the days leading up to Christmas, Leo accidentally loses his dog Ramona in Central Park. Leo is devastated by his loss until a magical creature named Little Spirit appears and takes him on a quest to find Ramona. Leo and Little Spirit venture out on the journey of a lifetime, taking in the festive surroundings of the city and meeting people from all walks of life. By the time Leo is reunited with Ramona, he has an eclectic group of friends that make the strange city seem like home.
