This is the time of the year when we want to get together with our families and friends and forget about all the worries which plague us all year long. The popularity of Holiday-themed movies is unparalleled. And if you are someone who is in love with Christmas and holiday films, ‘The Grinch’ is a film you will surely enjoy.

The film is based on the book ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas!’ by Dr. Seuss, and comes after a television special and a live-action adaptation of the same. This 2018 film uses 3D animation quite effectively and manages to capture the spirit of the story perfectly. You must be eager to find out where you can stream ‘The Grinch’, and we are here to tell you just that. But before we do so, let us walk you through what the film is actually about:

What Is The Grinch About?

The story of this film is set in a town called Whoville which is populated by human-like creatures known as the Whos. As winter arrives, the townsfolk of Whoville start preparing for Christmas enthusiastically. A creature called the Grinch lives on a mountain near Whoville, and loathes the enthusiasm that the people of Whoville have for Christmas.

We get to know that Grinch has had a tough childhood which he spent in an orphanage, and this is the reason he cannot tolerate others having fun. The Grinch plans to take away all the joys of Christmas from the people of Whoville by secretly posing as Santa and stealing their gifts and decorations. Meanwhile, a little girl called Cindy is eager to meet Santa, but Grinch tells her that the only way she can meet him is by going to the North Pole where he lives. When Cindy’s mother tells her this is not possible, the little girl plans to trap Santa during Christmas Eve. ‘The Grinch’ teaches us that material possession is not what defines the spirit of Christmas, but the joy and love that we share is at the core of the celebrations.
