For the third instalment of the successful ‘Lilly the Witch’ series, the MMC Art Department set up the complete house of Lilly and her family, including the wintry garden, on our soundstage 41.
In the film, the little witch conjures St. Nick’s wild helper Ruprecht to teach her little brother a lesson, but Ruprecht escapes and starts wreaking havoc in Lilly’s home town. She has to travel back in time to the Middle Ages to find St. Nick and save Christmas for all the kids in the world…
