Inception Media Group Proudly Presents
Danger in the Manger

Holiday Adventure for the Entire Family

Heartfelt Sequel to 2009 Hit Nativity! Spreads the Cheer on DVD & VOD Nov. 19th

"A new teacher must lead his class to singing victory in the family-friendly, holiday adventure Danger in the Manger, coming to DVD and VOD Nov. 19 from Inception Media Group.

Laugh your way through the Christmas season with this heartwarming family tale…

An overly anxious teacher, Mr. Peterson (David Tennant, Fright Night, How to Train Your Dragon, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire), begins a new job at an underdog elementary school, where he finds himself coping with a loose cannon classroom aide, Mr. Poppy (Marc Wooton, Arthur Christmas), who’s usually in more trouble than the kids!


When Mr. Poppy determinedly sets his eye on the national “A Song for Christmas” competition – with an enormous cash prize – Mr. Peterson ends up on a bus full of rowdy kids for an impromptu road trip to the competition. There, he will be up against his estranged, identical twin brother (Tenant in a dual role), a world-famous composer, conductor and all-round “golden boy.”

When they become stranded in the wilderness, Mr. Peterson must stand up, face his fears and try to not only lead the class to safety … but to singing victory!

Danger in the Manger is presented in widescreen with an aspect ratio of 16 x 9 (1.85:1) and 5.1 digital surround sound."


My Thoughts:

I was excited to hear that they were making a sequel to the 2009 holiday movie, "Nativity," this time calling it "Danger in the Manager."  While the original teacher does not return, as he was tied up with "The Hobbit" movie," David Tennant, better known for roles in "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire"and TV's, "Doctor Who", plays the new teacher, Mr. Peterson.

While the story line was a little flat, I do have to say that this movie contains some great holiday songs that will surely get you in the holiday spirit.  I ended up watching this movie this past weekend with my parents, who came to visit for Bella's birthday.  I knew that the girls would be too little to understand or appreciate this type of family-friendly movie, so I had to wait until they were in bed to watch it.  After watching it, I would say that children 10 and above would enjoy this movie. Not your usual Christmas movie, this one will entertain the family and have you singing along.  I have to admit I did laugh throughout the film, and loved how the movie played like a family comedy, with a musical piece added in.

So, if you are looking for a fun family movie to share with your children, and love the musical type shows on television, then you will love this sequel to Nativity.
