Disney's newest Christmas heist film, The Naughty Nine has been released just in time for the holiday season. Considering the mountains of snow and freezing weather shown in the movie, where was The Naughty Nine filmed, exactly? Here's what we know.
Where The Naughty Nine's North Pole is Located
Disney's newest Christmas heist film arrived on the streamer even before December hit the calendar.
A kid-centric movie directed by Alberto Belli, The Naughty Nine tells the story of nine naughty listers who didn't get their presents this year. And they don't plan on sitting around moping for Santa to give them theirs.
Seeing as The Naughty Nine revolves around the nine kids coming to Santa's lair at the North Pole, where was the Disney movie filmed?
According to Disney fandom, the filming for The Naughty Nine began in early 2022 up until April of the same year. The Christmas movie took place in Montréal City of Québec, Canada, as one of the kid stars, Camila Rodriguez (Dulce Gutierrez), posted on her profile:
The Naughty Nine's North Pole location was in Mont-Saint-Hilaire town, which is about 45 minutes South of Montreal. As for where exactly Santa Claus landed at the North Pole, that would be at the Saint-Antoine-de-Verchères station, an hour South of Montreal, as well.
The Naughty Nine's pilot actor Derek Theler even shared an update back in March 2022, where his Instagram post indicated filming in Montréal, Québec:
The 'Naughty Listers' Came To Play
Recently, the kids from the Disney movie shared their experiences during an interview with JustJaredJr. listing down a couple of their favorite moments filming in Montreal.
Most of the kids had fun playing laser tag, Uno, making a snow fort, an igloo, and even a snow slide while they were still in the middle of filming The Naughty Nine.
One of the cast members, Madilyn Kellam (who plays Laurel), even said, "We had a lot of fun. We'd like, run around and be kids."
Meanwhile, the official synopsis for The Naughty Nine reads:
Mischievous fifth grader Andy finds himself without a visit or presents from Santa on Christmas morning. Realizing he must have landed on the "naughty list" and feeling unfairly maligned, Andy pulls together a team of eight other "naughty listers" to help him execute an elaborate heist at the North Pole to get the presents they feel they deserve. Along the way, the group comes to realize that the very best way off the naughty list is to redirect their unique talents for good -- instead of mischief.
