Public Media Distribution is re-releasing the Oscar-nominated The Gruffalo and the sequel The Gruffalo’s Child on DVD January 10 – and I for one, could not be any more excited! These are two of my favorite movies and I was super excited to share them with my young daughters! We were so lucky to receive advanced copies and we watched them together as a family. My girls are totally in love with The Gruffalo now! I plan to pick them up copies of the books ASAP.
Both of these films are based on beloved children’s books written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, and feature an all-star cast of voices. Some of the featured voice talent in both films includes Helena Bonham Carter (Harry Potter), Robbie Coltrane (Harry Potter), James Corden (The Late Late Show with James Corden), John Hurt (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull), and Tom Wilkinson (Batman Begins).
About The Gruffalo
This enchanting tale tells the story of a mouse who walks through the woods in search of a nut. Along the way, he encounters a hungry fox, owl, and snake who all think the mouse looks good to eat! Forced to rely on his wits for survival, Mouse invents an imaginary monster with frightening features to scare them away, but what happens when he comes face-to-face with his own creation? Purchase here.
About The Gruffalo’s Child
One snowy night, the Gruffalo’s Child ignores her father’s warning and bravely tiptoes out of their cave into the deep dark wood in search of the Big Bad Mouse. On her journey, she meets Snake, Owl, and Fox but no sign of the fabled Mouse. He doesn’t really exist…or does he? Purchase here.
