Klaus ★★★★½

While it relies a little too heavy on pop song-infused montages and the typical liar/reveal story arc, Klaus proves to be worth the wait as not just a charming and heartfelt Christmas tale but an excellent reminder that Disney-style 2D animation still has a place in the industry, and I remain hopeful that its success inspires Netflix and other streaming venues to invest more in the format if the major studios are still going to leave it in the dark.
