'Arthur Christmas' Based in Cornish Village

The new movie from the makers of Wallace and Gromit centres on a Cornish village.
Festive film 'Arthur Christmas' is based on Mylor Bridge near Penryn.
It is about the race to deliver a forgotten present.
Aardman Animations say the location had to share its name with another place across the world.
Here is the word from local schoolkids:
"It's really good so other people from other places know Mylor."
"It's really exciting, I also recognise the church as well."
"Film companies, they go to more popular places like London or places like that, but it's unusual to have it down in Cornwall where they hardly ever base stuff."
Parish councillor Tony Andrew is hoping it leads to an influx of tourists:
"It's free advertising worldwide and it couldn't be better for the village. It couldn't be better. It brings people in, you meet new people, people take a liking to it when they retire, and they come here to live"
"It's something that always happens isn't it. If something is advertised or put on the telly or the wireless people will go and see it won't they. Cornish people are very warm people. They are the most loyal the most welcoming people that there is anywhere in the country"
