Emily Elizabeth is an ordinary but lonely schoolgirl growing up in New York City, struggling to fit in at school and home. While she is being looked after by her hapless uncle, she stumbles across a cute bright red puppy in a mysterious animal rescue tent. Finding the dog in her bag at home, she is amazed to wake up the next morning to find the puppy has grown to more than 10ft high. After becoming an internet sensation the dog attracts the attention of an evil corporation carrying out genetic experiments on animals, who seek to claim Clifford as one of their own. But the community have taken Clifford to their hearts and fight back. Adapted from the beloved book series, this is a delightful family comedy with real heart and valuable messages around community, anti-bullying, and loving creatures of all shapes and sizes.

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. "
