'A sequel to classic animated short The Snowman is to be produced by Channel 4 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the original's 1982 broadcast.
The Snowman 2 - described as "a brand new adventure" featuring Raymond Briggs's character and "a new set of friends" - will air next Christmas.
London-based animation company Lupus Films told The Guardian it would be "new and fresh [and] not identical".
The original film was nominated for an Academy Award in 1983.'

I LOVED “The Snowman”. I almost hate to see a sequel.

I love that haunting song from it. I have it on a CD and listen to it every Christmas.
