On Angel Wings DVD Review and Giveaway

It is eight weeks until Christmas and we are excited! Monkey and Mouse are not bothered about Halloween and although we will have a great bonfire night, Christmas will be the next big thing in our house. I have started my shopping and we have started picking the Christmas DVDs off the shelf to watch.Β image005

On 2nd November ‘On Angel Wings’ (which was shown on BBC one last Christmas) will be released on DVD and Digital download; it is a lovely animated short film and we were lucky enough to have a sneak preview and it really kick started the Christmas Feeling.

On Angel Wings is a re-working of the nativity story based on the book by acclaimed author Michael MorpurgoΒ and from the executive producer of The Snowman and the director of Father Christmas.image003

“The story begins on a present day Christmas night. Rachel is eight and for the first time she is allowed to join her brothers and sister to visit their Grandfather Amos, as he carries out his annual ritual of a night in the hills, where he worked as a young shepherd boy.

Grandfather is delighted to see the children and a special bond is established between himself and Rachel. Like her, he was the youngest and was always getting in the way, struggling to do things better, fighting to be believed in. He tells them how she reminds him of a magical night and proceeds to recount how he was flown by the Angel Gabriel to become the first visitor to the newly-born Christ child, the Virgin Mary and Joseph”

Monkey and Mouse are really getting into the Christmas swing of things and were more than happy to sit down and watch a Christmassy themed DVD. Monkey stared at it throughout and said that he thought It was a really nice story! Mouse loved it and said it was amazing!

I loved that it kept their attention whilst I made tea and that they were both smiley after it, it is definitely a hit as they have asked to watch it again! It will be staying in the Christmas section of our films for quite a while to come I think!

I have the chance for one of you to win your own copy of ‘On Angel Wings’, all you have to do is enter using as many options as you would like on the gleam widget below! Good Luck.

    I like christmas as its 1 of the only times of the year the family are all together for a couple of days – wherever we are in the world we all stop what we are doing and put family time first.
