About The Polar Express

Get up, get on, and get ready for the ride of your life. It's Christmas Eve, and you're about to roller-coaster up and down mountains, slip-slide over ice fields, teeter across mile-high bridges - you're on The Polar Express! Tom Hanks stars and Robert Zemeckis directs this instant holiday classic filmed in dazzling performance-capture animation that makes every moment magical. 

"Seeing is believing" says the mysterious hobo who rides the rails with you. You'll see wonders. And you'll believe. All aboard!
