The Grinch: The Story About the Spirit of Christmas

Love ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’? Check out ‘The Grinch’ this holiday season to get more insight into the evil green guy (featuring tons of appearances by his trusty dog Max, too).

My holiday season isn’t complete without at least one viewing of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. And now there’s something else to look forward to! Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss’ beloved classic, which tells the story of the cynical grump who makes it his mission to steal Christmas.

Academy Award nominee Benedict Cumberbatch lends his voice to the infamous Grinch, who lives a solitary life in a cave with only his loyal dog, Max (my favorite character!), for company. This funny, heartwarming and visually stunning movie shares the universal story about the spirit of Christmas and the power of optimism. Get more information at
