A Boy Called Christmas

Posted on 7th December 2021 by FilmFixer

FilmFixer gets festive with its London locations in ‘A Boy Called Christmas’, the newly released British Christmas fantasy film directed by Gil Kenan from a screenplay by Ol Parker and Kenan.

Keystone Crescent in King’s Cross in the London Borough of Islington features in the very first shot of the trailer, with a gorgeous snowy street scene.



The super-sweet original story is based on the book by the multi-million-selling author Matt Haig, and features a glittering all-star cast, including Dame Maggie Smith, Jim Broadbent, Toby Jones and Stephen Merchant.

Look out for filming in Regents Park Road, where a series of street scenes were shot. Maggie Smith gets off a bus in Regents Park Road and walks around the corner before heading down Sharples Hall St.

‘A Boy Called Christmas’ develops the story of Santa as a boy, through the exploits of Nikolas, a child from Finland. He sets out on an extraordinary adventure in search of his father, who is on a quest to find the fabled elf village of Elfheim. Joining him are his loyal pet mouse Miika (voiced by Stephen Merchant) and a headstrong reindeer Blitzen.

As well as shots of Keystone Crescent and Regents Park Road please see a photo of Kat, who worked on the movie as a marshall, and was a new entrant from our Set Ready training programme.
