Unlike the traditional Santa Claus myth, Kringle is a coming-of-age story about an orphan who becomes a force for good in a dark and violent time. It is a tale of fantasy, of goblins, elves, and flying reindeer — and of a boy from the humblest beginnings who fulfills his destiny. Our tale begins in 500 A.D., when goblins kidnapped human children and set them to work in underground mines. Kringle is one such child.... until he discovers his mission — to free children from enslavement. His legend lives on today, as he travels the earth every Christmas Eve to quell the goblins once more.
In 2007, Paramount Pictures optioned the film rights. The idea was pitched by film director Mark Dindal based on a script written by Dindal and Jason Richman, with Lorenzo di Bonaventura producing and Dindal directing. As of September 2017[update], no new updates have been announced regarding the status of the production.
