I might be in my mide 30’s but having young nieces and nephews I get a little glimpse into the what the kids are into in regards of books so believe it or not I have actually heard of this book, even seen the tv cartoon. Horrid Henry is a series of popular children’s books from Francesca Simon , Tony Ross and thanks to our good friends at Vertigo Films they are bringing the Horrid Boy to our screens, so they have sent us a first look at the movies new (UK) trailer.
Horrid Henry: The Movie will be the first ever British kids’ movie to be filmed in 3D, stars Anjelica Huston as Henry’s terrifying teacher Miss Battle-Axe, alongside, Rebecca Front as Henry’s headmistress Ms Oddbod, Richard E Grant as a rival headmaster and Parminder Nagra as Miss Lovely. Noel Fielding makes an appearance as Killer Boy Rats’ frontman Ed Banger, joining Jo Brand as the Demon Dinner Lady, Matthew Horne as Henry’s Dad and Prunella Scales as Great Aunt Greta. And introducing new young stars, Scarlett Stitt as Moody Margaret, Ross Marron as Perfect Peter and Theo Stevenson as Horrid Henry.
When it comes to books, cartoons tv shows been adapted for the big screen I only question those unkown or unpopular ones but when it comes to very popular I have no quarrels and Horrid Henry is certainly a popular story.
HORRID HENRY:THE MOVIE will be released this summer, possibly August.
