Vancouver (BC) Canada – Moving Tales today released a Christmas special App, a full colour 3D animated telling of the classic American Christmas poem ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’. This innovative and richly detailed animated app presents the classic poem as you have never seen it. The app sells for $1.99 on the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.

Sharing much of the rich feature set of their innovative and very successful ‘Pedlar Lady of Gushing Cross’ app, the ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’ let’s the user enjoy lovingly detailed three dimensional characters including St Nicholas, the Father, sleeping children, reindeer and mice; a stunning hybrid style of animation combining line work, textures and 3D animation; the user can choose from one of three professionally recorded voices; the app includes film calibre music and sound effects; the user can record their own voice reading the poem to be played back with the sound effects and music; and many wonderful animated surprises, including a hilarious one minute intricately choreographed St Nicholas delivering gifts in a home dance routine.

“The ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’ app uses the same book engine as our classic Pedlar Lady app, whereas ‘Twas the Night is in full colour and rich texture,” explains Moving Tales founder Matthew Talbot-Kelly. “We developed the look of the app with internationally recognized Milan based children’s illustrator AnnaLaura Cantone. Like her artwork, the animations are playful, rich in detail, and hilarious. The app is truly unlike anything else out there. We are confident, young and old, on an iPhone or iPad – all will be enchanted. And check out our fun’Twas the Night trailer on our web site as well.”

Next In The Classic World Tales Series:
Following up on our genre defining ‘Pedlar Lady of Gushing Cross’ app, ‘The Unwanted Guest’ is an adaptation of a traditional Jewish folk tale, where a poor old man, down on his luck and living in a tumbledown house, is visited by an unwelcome house guest. The story tells of the old man’s attempt to rid himself of his surprising visitor once and for all.
