Audiences who remember the delightful Oscar-nominated Ernest et Célestine from a few years ago will be thrilled to see this latest offering from the same filmmaking team. Taking three short tales about the misadventures of a group of farmyard animals, they have once again brought us some delightful characters – a fox that thinks it’s a chicken, a pig that acts like a stork, and a duck who wants to replace Santa Claus.
Basing the film on an original comic book by Benjamin Renner – who adapted his stories and also directs the film – the characters’ world is full of madcap slapstick, snappy dialogue and behaviour that is far from what we might expect of traditional farmyard animals. Wild and wacky, with cartoon mayhem reminiscent of classic Hollywood animation, this is a fun-filled romp for all the family.
Listen out for these big-name voices: Bill Bailey, Adrian Edmonson, Justin Edwards, Matthew Goode, Celia Imrie, Phill Jupitus and Giles New.
