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.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
