The story of Arthur Christmas revolves around the current Santa Claus, his wife, his two sons Arthur and Steve, and their grandfather, Grandsanta. Set on Christmas Eve night, the film opens with a set of elves sitting behind their computers at the commando bridge of Santa's gigantic, ultra-high-tech sleigh. While Santa and the elves deliver presents to children using fancy advanced equipment and military precision, Santa's oldest son Steve manages the operation at mission control, alongside his obsequious assistant, Peter. However, his clumsy younger brother Arthur, who is assigned to handling childrens' letters in the mail department, inadvertently disrupts operations entering the room to place some correspondence and a present falls out of the system as a result.
