This winter, one of the real treats to stream from Netflix will be Robin Robin, a brand new animated film from Aardman (Wallace and Gromit, Chicken Run…). So what’s it all about?
Robin Robin is a musical tale, directed by its creators Dan Ojari (Slow Derek – Grand Prix: Animated Encounters) and Mikey Please (The Eagleman Stag – BAFTA: Best Animated Short, Marilyn Myller – McLaren Award: Edinburgh Film Festival).
Aardman describe the film’s plot, saying “When her egg fortuitously rolls into a rubbish dump, Robin is raised by a loving family of 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”.
“When Dan and Mikey first pitched us the concept for Robin Robin we knew instantly that this was a rare and special project that we had to make together” said Sarah Cox, Executive Producer. “It’s a beautifully crafted stop-frame musical that immediately feels classic whilst being groundbreaking and modern.”
Alexi Wheeler, Manager of Kids and Family International Originals at Netflix, said: “Together with Aardman, we’re thrilled to celebrate and introduce new generations of families around the world to the craft of stop motion animation through Robin Robin, a magical tale that warms the heart and can be enjoyed by the whole family.”
Robin Robin is currently in production at Aardman’s award-winning studio in the UK and will debut on Netflix in time for the holidays in 2020.
