Penguin Random House has announced the exciting news that Nickelodeon USA will premiere Albert, Nickelodeon's first original animated TV movie, during the the 2016 holiday season!

Albert is the hilarious, sweet and exciting story of a tiny Douglas fir tree named Albert who loves Christmas more than anyone, and dreams of being THE big Christmas tree in Empire City. Unfortunately, his miniature size has kept him inside the plant nursery year after year. Joined by his two best friends, a fun-loving palm tree and a rambunctious weed, Albert treks across the country to live his dream of becoming the world's most famous Christmas tree.
