Like it or not Christmas is less than 10 weeks away. The festive season is already slowly creeping into our daily lives like Robin Robin. Netflix have released the official heart warming Trailer for Aardman Animation stop motion animated short.
The 30 minute film is directed by Dan Ojari (Slow Derek) and Mikey Please (The Eagleman Stag). The voice cast includes Bronte Carmichael who will voice Robin. When her egg falls from the nest, Robin is adopted by a family of mice, and raised as one of their own. Not quite a bird and not quite a mouse, but full of determination. Robin sets out on an adventure to prove herself and just maybe, get a sandwich.
Adeel Akhtar voices Dad Mouse, a caring but cautious soul who is single-handedly raising a family of five children (one of them happens to be an adopted bird).Richard E Grant will voice Magpie, an obsessive collector of shiney ‘stuff’. Magpie takes Robin under his ‘wing’, on a journey of self discovery. Underneath his many ruffled feathers he really is a good egg. Gillian Anderson voices Cat. The villain of our story who just so happens to know a place where everything is welcome, her tummy.
This may not be a fully fledged film that was set for cinema, it will still delight everyone. It’s from the award winning Bristol based studio that brought us Wallace & Gromit, enough said!
When her egg fortuitously rolls into a rubbish dump, Robin is raised by a loving family of burglar mice. As she grows up, her differences become more apparent. Robin sets off on the heist to end all heists to prove to her family that she can be a really good mouse – but ends up discovering who she really is.
Robin Robin will be launched on Netflix on 24th November.
