October was a quiet month when it came to movies for the family. November is changing that immediately. There’s a new movie you’ll want to take the kids to the theaters for this weekend. It’s all about Glisten and the Merry Mission.

Trinity Bliss voices Marzipan, a young elfling who needs to save Christmas. She and her mother, Cinnameg, voiced by Julia Michaels learn that a toy shortage has hit Santa’s workshop. It puts the whole of Christmas at risk, and the tow will go on a journey to rediscover an enchanted snow deer called Glisten.

There’s a great cast voicing other characters. Listen out for Dionne Warwick, Freddie Prinze Jr., Chevy Chase, and many more.

Glisten and the Merry Mission age rating

Of course, before you book your tickets, you’ll want to know that this is a movie for the whole family. Is this something that the younger kids can watch, or is it an adventure for the older kids in the house?

There’s some great news. The official age rating for Glisten and the Merry Mission is G. This means that it is suitable for all ages, including the toddlers in the house. Of course, when it comes to toddlers, you’ll need to be prepared to leave if they don’t quite settle to watch the movies. We all know what toddlers can get like.

G is the lowest age rating. Technically, it means that parental guidance isn’t necessary. Of course, you’re not leaving young children in the theaters on their own! It is great for birthday parties, though, if you’re looking for a way to treat the friends of your little ones.

The movie is sure to have some great lessons for children to learn. It’s also a fun adventure in the race to save Christmas.

Glisten and the Merry Mission is out in theaters on Friday, Nov. 3.
