Snowtime! (French: La Guerre des tuques 3D) (released on DVD in the UK as Cleo[3][4]) is a Canadian film from Quebec, released in 2015.[5] Directed by Jean-François Pouliot, it is an animated remake of the 1984 film The Dog Who Stopped the War (La Guerre des tuques).[6]


The film centres on a group of children, led by Luke (Nicholas Savard-L'Herbier / Angela Galuppo) and Sophie (Mariloup Wolfe / Lucinda Davis), who plan and stage a giant snowball fight during the Christmas holidays.[5]


Having earned $3,359,425 in 2015, the film was the highest-grossing Canadian film at the domestic box office during the calendar year, thus winning the Cineplex Golden Screen Award conferred by the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television.[7][8] It had its American premiere at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.[9] The film was released in English Canada on February 12, 2016 and the United States on February 19, 2016.[2]

The soundtrack features songs by various artists, including two recordings of "L'hymne" by Celine Dion, one English rendition as a solo artist and one French rendition recorded as a duet with Fred Pellerin.
