Into Film Clubs
Into Film Clubs provide opportunities to watch, review and make films.
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.
