A friend of mine introduced me to this movie and I'm glad she did. I'm not the kind of person who normally watches sappy movies when anyone has a chance of seeing me watch them. I am, however, a closet romantic and I must say I happily watched ANNABELLE'S WISH and unashamedly sniffled with tears in my eyes towards the end.
I think this movie ranks up with some of my all time holiday favorites like "The Year Without a Santa Clause," "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas," and "Small One". In terms of length, it's a little short, certainly designed so for the younger audiences it will attract, but it's the kind of movie you'll pull out of the cabinet time and again during the holiday season simply because it will make you feel good to watch it. Cocoa or warm cider, a blanket, and a few children watching will make your viewing time that much better.

Annabelle's Wish is one of the best non-commerical and non-religious Christmas stories ever told. The ending can bring a tear to most eyes. Although it is a straight-to-video cartoon, the cast is full of big names like Jerry Van Dyke, the late Jim Varney, Frank Welker, Cloris Leachman, and Randy Travis (who also sings a few songs).
Annabelle is a calf born on Grandpa Baker's farm on Christmas Eve who wants to become one of Santa's reindeer. Struggling for money, Grandpa gives Annabelle as a Christmas gift to Billy, his orphaned grandson who lives with him. We learn that Santa Claus gives the animals the gift of speech each Christmas Day and that Billy has been mute since being caught in a barn fire when he was younger.
During the coming year Grandpa Baker tries to keep guardianship of Billy from a rich and tenacious Aunt Agnes while Billy is tormented by the bullying Holder Boys. Luckily Billy has his two best friends Annabelle and neighbor Emily to help him though it all.
Does Billy stay with his poor Grandpa on the farm or go to the city with his rich aunt? Will he ever talk again? Does Annabelle ever pull Santa's sleigh? Will the Holder Boys ever get what's coming to them?
I won't tell you, you have to watch the movie. It's worth it!

Well, alot of the newer Christmas specials don't have the same kind of magic that the older classics had. This is a wonderful exception. Its charming and sentimental, and full of magic. With a down home "country" feel, this special shows that christmas is about love and giving. When Annabelle is born on Christmas Eve, Santa comes and gives all the barn animals a special gift, they can talk on Christmas Day! Annabelle decides that if she is really good all year long, maybe Santa will grant her a special wish so she can fly with his reindeer! But when Billy needs her, does that mean she won't get her chance? There's a star-studded cast of voice, and the DVD contains lots of great extras (including a deleted song, a funny one which the kids might enjoy!) This movie is a total tear-jerker and great for adults and children too. Definately make this a special you watch!

This is just the best "cartoon" Christmas movie ever. And what a great message it gives us through Annabelle the cow. Annabelle teaches us by example that it is better to give than to receive. Her best friend is a little boy who is now mute because of his fear in a barn fire some time in the past. The boy has few friends, but the animals and a little girl who befriend him are true-blue. The boy is given his voice in the end from Santa because Annabelle gave up her wish to fly like the reindeer. It really is touching. You've got to get this one for the kids (and adults who are soft at heart).

I have loved this movie since my older children were young, now starting over with a 2 year old, I really wanted this movie on dvd for him. This is an excellent movie, with great music, and wonderful teaching moments. There is something for children of any gender or age! I have not been able to find it in the US anywhere and was ecstatic to find it here. Thank you for the availability, great price, timely delivery, and for making Christmas better!

This is a story of friendship, generosity and love - all showing the true meaning of giving and Christmas. A beautiful calf named Annabelle makes a christmas wish to Santa - and then gives the most special gift she can to her very best friend. This movie is a classic in our house watched every year - you are never too old to enjoy!
