The ho-ho-holiday season seems to start earlier every year. Then again, if it comes bearing gifts like a DVD of the charming animated flick Arthur Christmas, we can’t complain. The British/American collaboration, which earned a B+ from EW last year, tells the tale of clumsy, good-natured Arthur, Santa’s cheery but bumbling son. Its greatest asset is a voice cast stuffed with the likes of James McAvoy, Hugh Laurie, Jim Broadbent, Imelda Staunton, and Bill Nighy, all of whom appear in the following exclusive clip — which takes us into the recording booth with Arthur‘s stars. Grab a cup of eggnog and press play:

Getting a jump-start on stocking stuffers? You’ll be pleased to know that Arthur Christmas will be available on DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow, Nov. 6.
