Film title

The Gruffalo


Synopsis

Adapted from the best-selling book - a bedtime story favourite for many children - this short animation centres on a crafty mouse (voiced by James Corden) protected from harm by his own vibrant imagination. Faced by peckish predators - a snake, an owl and a fox - the mouse distracts them all with tall tales of a terrifying beast on the loose. All is well until the seemingly fictitious ''Gruffalo'' (Robbie Coltrane) roars on to the scene. Narrated by Helena Bonham Carter and animated with an artful combination of model work and CGI, this is a slick and charismatic treat with a remarkable cast of voices.

The Gruffalo's Child


Synopsis

A brave, young monster hunts for the legendary Big Bad Mouse in this charming and witty animated sequel to the Oscar-nominated short The Gruffalo. Though her dad’s warned her about going into the deep, dark wood, the young Gruffalo is determined not to be frightened - even when tracks in the snow lead her to a trio of creatures she’s never seen before. The snake, owl, and fox add to the worrying description of the elusive rodent, making her surprised that the mouse she actually encounters is snack-sized, rather than scary! Yet despite being tiny, the furry fella’s got a clever trick up his sleeve that will teach the Gruffalo’s Child an amusing lesson, and save him from her tummy.
