Annabelle's Wish is a 1997 animated Christmas film that revolves around a young calf who aspires to learn to fly and become one of Santa's reindeer. It is narrated by Randy Travis and stars veteran voice actress Kath Soucie. This special was made for the Make A Wish Foundation. Proceeds from the video sales went to the charity. It aired on FOX shortly after the video's release. It also aired on ABC Family's 25 Days of Christmas in 2005.
The story is based on an old legend that Santa gives animals the ability to speak on Christmas. Annabelle is a calf born on Christmas Eve, who sees Santa's sleigh and dreams of becoming a reindeer and flying. It also follows the sacrifices she makes to help Billy, a mute boy who also lives on the farm.
