KLAUS will launch in select UK cinemas on 8th November and globally on Netflix on 15th November.
Meet Klaus (voiced by J.K. Simmons), a mysterious carpenter who lives alone in a cabin full of handmade toys. When he meets the new postman in town, Jesper, their unlikely friendship transforms their town.
Meet Jesper (voiced by Jason Schwartzman), a reluctant postman who is tasked with the impossible task of establishing a postal service in Smeerensburg.
Meet Alva (voiced by Rashida Jones), a teacher by trade who’s classroom is often left empty because of the age old family feud in Smeerensburg. When postman Jesper and carpenter Klaus team up to deliver toys to the town’s children, she finds her classroom transformed for the better.
When Jesper (Jason Schwartzman) distinguishes himself as the postal academy’s worst student, he is stationed on a frozen island above the Arctic Circle, where the feuding locals hardly exchange words let alone letters.
Jesper is about to give up when he finds an ally in local teacher Alva (Rashida Jones), and discovers Klaus (Oscar® winner J.K. Simmons), a mysterious carpenter who lives alone in a cabin full of handmade toys.
These unlikely friendships return laughter to Smeerensburg, forging a new legacy of generous neighbours, magical lore and stockings hung by the chimney with care.
An animated holiday comedy directed by Despicable Me co-creator Sergio Pablos, KLAUS co-stars Joan Cusack, Will Sasso and Norm Macdonald.
