Orson Welles died more than twenty-years ago but that won’t stop him from doing a new movie. THR says you can expect to hear him narrating the upcoming children’s movie Christmas Tails.

It’s happening because of some recently uncovered Welles recordings in which he narrates a Christmas novel. Those recordings are being used a basis for the film which is a live action/CGI hybrid that will, of course, also be shoehorned into 3D. What’s it about? That’s where it gets a bit confusing. It’s being produced by Drac Studios and their head honcho Harvey Lowry describes it this way: “It's a movie about how Santa's dog saves Christmas.” Ok that part makes sense. Now for the part that doesn’t: “But on one level, this a story about the discovery of Orson's lost tapes.”

I’m pretty sure you can ignore that second part and focus on this being a movie about Santa dog re-enacting Earnest Saves Christmas. What’s more I know if I were the rotting corpse of Orson Welles there’s nothing I’d love better than to have my voice dug up so someone can slap my name on a poster featuring a dog in a Santa hat. Cute! When I think puppies, I always think Orson Welles.
