As we learned in the first Arthur Christmas teaser trailer, there is an army of 1.6 million elves that help Santa ensure delivery of all those toys in one night, and Santa has a son named Arthur who’s a little loose-lipped. In teaser trailer No. 2 (watch it below), we get a good look at that army and the kind of exercises they do to train. We won’t ruin the punchline. Personally, I like that the film is letting the story stand on its own and not spending the minute and a half touting its voice cast (which, by the way, includes James McAvoy, Hugh Laurie, Jim Broadbent, Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton, and Ashley Jensen).
