The Polar Express stars Tom Hanks, Leslie Harter Zemeckis, and Eddie Deezen. On Christmas Eve, a young boy lays in bed doubting that Santa is real. Yet the boy waits. He falls asleep but is almost immediately woken back up by a train close to his home. He dashes outside and sees the Polar Express.
The conductor tells the boy that the train is going to the North Pole, and he hops on. On board, the boy meets a girl who wholeheartedly believes in Santa. He meets another boy named Billy, and later, he encounters a hobo. These new acquaintances, along with the conductor accompany the boy on an enchanted holiday train ride. The Polar Express movie is a favorite for kids.
