Paramount Home Media has tabbed Nov. 14 for the DVD debut date of the Nickelodeon Animation Studio production of director Max Lang’s Albert: A Small Tree With a Big Dream.
Albert (voiced by Bobby Moynihan) is a Douglas fir tree who has dreams of becoming this year’s Christmas tree for Empire City. It’s a bold dream, since he is small and not likely to be anyone’s first choice, but he is determined and so he hits the road with his friends, Maisie (voiced by Sasheer Zamata), a palm tree, and Gene (voiced by Judah Friedlander), a weed.
They soon run afoul of Cactus Pete (Rob Riggle), who can’t stand the Christmas season and does everything in his power to wreck it for all!
Albert: A Small Tree With a Big Dream is a life-lesson tale where Albert overcomes all of the obstacles thrown his way to learn about the true meaning of Christmas.
In addition to the animation fun, there are two new songs delivered by the gang — “The Best Thing That Can Happen to Christmas” and “The Christmasiest Christmas.”
