Director Robert Zemeckis’ animated 2004 interpretation of Chris Van Allsburg’s holiday story features Tom Hanks in multiple roles through a technique called “motion capture,” which creates a pseudo-real look. Hanks is most recognizable as the conductor of a train that takes a youngster on a wild ride to the North Pole. Also in the voice cast are Peter Scolari, Michael Jeter, Steven Tyler and Josh Hutcherson.
“Lucy Worsley’s 12 Days of Tudor Christmas” airs on PBS.
