Little Spirit: Christmas in New York


When a friendly cabbie tells two young sisters the story of a boy named Leo, who moved to Manhattan with his family, a magical adventure begins. While adjusting to the big city and enjoying the days leading up to Christmas, Leo accidentally loses his dog Ramona in Central Park.

Leo is devastated by his loss until a magical creature named Little Spirit appears and takes him on a quest to find Ramona. Leo and Little Spirit venture out on the journey of a lifetime, taking in the festive surroundings of the city and meeting people from all walks of life. By the time Leo is reunited with Ramona, he has an eclectic group of friends that make the strange city seem like home.

Dove Review

This wonderful little tale is told to the young girls in a taxi cab by the driver as they go to their grandmother’s house. It’s a cute little story about one little boy’s adventure in a new city as he tries to find his missing dog. As Leo searches for Ramona he receives help from a fantasy-like little creature that looks like he is from outer space. He comes to his rescue to help with the search. This Little Spirit as he is called takes Leo here and there through magical tunnels that connect the Christmas trees in people’s homes, leading him to Ramona who is in a little trouble.

This is a story of new friendships, helping others and the spirit that the Christmas season brings. Everyone in the family will enjoy this tale of “Little Spirit: Christmas in New York.” Dove awards this film our Dove “Family Approved” Seal for all ages.
