Niko - Beyond the Northern Lights

In his third adventure, the flying reindeer boy Niko’s biggest dream is to become a member of Santa’s Flying Forces. But he gets challenged by the super talented reindeer girl Stella who shatters that dream. Niko has to decide between trust and loyalty.

After a tearful goodbye, NIKO leaves his family behind to take his place next to his father, PRANCER on SANTA’S FLYING FORCES. For Niko, it’s a dream come true: to become a hero, like his father. But STELLA, an unknown challenger arrives, to compete for Niko’s spot. Despite their competitiveness, NIKO admires her, and invites Stella to show her where Santa’s sleigh is hidden. However, on the night before Christmas Eve, Stella steals it. Gutted by Stella’s betrayal and desperate to appease his angry father, Niko heads to the Frozen North to recover the sleigh. Accompanied by his loyal friends, flying squirrel JULIUS and weasel WILMA. In the ensuing battle, between THE FLYING FORCES and THE STORM FORCES, Niko and Stella split off to prevent the sleigh from being destroyed. As our heroes face grave danger, difficult choices are made that change Christmas forever.
