Animated comedy Epic Tails is heading to cinemas next month in a bid for the half-term crowd – and here’s the trailer.
It has been a quiet period for British animation. While you can currently see Terry Pratchett’s The Amazing Maurice on Sky Cinema, and the beautiful adaptation of The Boy, The Mole, The Fox And The Horse aired on the BBC over Christmas, new releases are thin on the ground.
Epic Tales is actually a French film as it happens, dubbed over with an English cast, but it’s heading to cinemas in the next few weeks.
The synopsis reads as follows:
EPIC TAILS tells the story of super smart mouse Pattie and her feline friend Sam, as they embark upon an exciting adventure of paw-some proportions through Ancient Greece. With a little help from ageing hero Jason, the animals’ quest brings them face to face with some the most bizarre and dangerous creatures from Greek mythology, as they race to halt the threat posed to their city by Poseidon himself.
Comedian Josh Widdecombe makes his feature film debut playing very much against type as the voice of Greek God Zeus, alongside fellow comic Rob Beckett as his brother Poseidon. Widdecombe also voices Hermes and Hephaestus. Author and presenter Giovanna Fletcher is completes the cast.
The film comes from French studio Tat, with David Alaux directing.
Epic Tales will be released on the 10th February. Watch the trailer below…
