The movie tells the story of Princess Bluerose, a gnome living in the Norwegian mountains. Her small community is responsible for making the transition between day and night, a magic hour dependent on the magic silver only gnomes possess. When the silver is stolen, the world is plunged into eternal night and Princess Bluerose sets out on a remarkable journey to retrieve the silver and save the world from unending darkness.
Magic Silver is a spin off from a very popular Norwegian children’s TV show which has been a part of Norwegian children’s Christmas traditions since 1999. The TV show Jul i Blåfjell (directly translated into Christmas in the Blue Mountain) was originally a 24 part series and aired as one of the traditional televised Advent calendars with one episode every day from December 1 through December 24. The film Magic Silver was released in November 2009.
