THE LITTLE DRUMMER BOY retells the classic story of a lonely little boy who visits a manger in Bethlehem and discovers the greatest gift of all--love. Teddy Eccles provides the voice for Aaron, an orphaned boy with a knack for drumming whose only friends are a lamb and a donkey. After joining a party of three royal kings, Aaron finds himself part of a convoy to witness the birth of Jesus. As the wealthy kings bestow incense and myrrh on the babe, Aaron searches for a gift of his own--a song.
Featuring a compelling soundtrack sung by the Vienna Boys Choir, THE LITTLE DRUMMER BOY is a perfect holiday film. The movie both evokes a feeling of nostalgia from the early 1970s and demonstrates the timeless lesson of generosity to the unfortunate and poor. Directors Jules Bass and Arthur Rankin have adapted another winner with the biblical tale of THE LITTLE DRUMMER BOY.
