Raised as an over-sized elf, a human travels from the North Pole to NYC to meet his biological father who doesn't know he exists and is in desperate need of some Christmas spirit.
This Jon Favreau directed film follows a large elf from the north pole traversing the strange world that is New York City to find his true identity.
The cotton balls that Buddy the Elf eats are actually cotton candy that were not dyed. The scene where Santa chases Buddy was done in one take.
