In Search of Santa is a 2004 CGI family film starring Hilary Duff and her older sister Haylie Duff in their first voice roles. It was directed by William R. Kowalchuk and released on November 23, 2004.


King Calvin and Queen Penelope have their eggs laid and as their daughters hatch, the parents name them Crystal and Lucinda. As the sisters grow, despite their differences, they compromise and head to the North Pole to find Santa Claus in order to save Christmas which Crystal believes in earlier and all along. After saving the seal in the middle of their quest, both sisters meet the pirates; Capn' Cragg a walrus, Bugkus Bill a stork and a pelican.



The film received generally negative reviews,[1][2][3] with viewers heavily criticizing its animation quality and script. UltimateDisney wrote "the film has not succeeded in challenging, engaging, or even entertaining but it is colorful and somewhat lively" and that "the makers of In Search of Santa hope that the appeal of computer animation, Christmas, and the Duff sisters will encourage people to check their movie out."[4]
