This week sees the big screen debut of one of Britain's most beloved and historic characters, Postman Pat.

The film has some familiar faces behind their 3D characters, including Harry Potter's Rupert Grint and comedy actor Stephen Mangan as Pat, and both have been chatting to Into Film recently to spread the word of the film far and wide!

Firstly, our young reporter Tanvi sat down with Rupert Grint to ask him about what it was like stepping behind the microphone for this film, and find out some of his hidden talents. Watch the interview below.

Children from Staveley School in Cumbria were lucky enough to get to see the film before the rest of the country, at an exclusive gala screening attended by Pat himself, as well as Stephen Mangan.

The school had a great time meeting the cast and the author of Postman Pat, John Cunliffe, with some students even interviewed for TV.

Students at Sullivan Primary School in South London were given even more of a treat this week when Stephen visited the school to talk about his work on the film.
