Looking to repeat the success it’s had in the past with animated Christmas specials The Snowman and The Tiger Who Came to Tea, UK broadcaster Channel 4 has acquired a new short film called The Abominable Snow Baby for 2021.

Produced by Eagle Eye Drama, the half-hour special is based on a Terry Pratchett short story (pictured) from his book Father Christmas’s Fake Beard. Pratchett’s indie production company Narrative is involved in the project, which received a grant from the BFI’s Young Audiences Content Fund.

The Abominable Snow Baby is about a quintessentially English town that’s thrown into chaos when a big blizzard leaves a 14-foot baby made of snow in its wake. The special will premiere on Channel 4 in December.
