Gruffalo creators Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler have a knack for dreaming up characters who are likeable without being goody-goody. In this lovely animation, it’s a kindly, inept witch, who’s joined on her broomstick by a raggletaggle menagerie – and her protective cat.
The starry voice cast includes Gillian Anderson, Rob Brydon, Martin Clunes, David Walliams and Sally Hawkins, although so much of this story about family and friendship is told through gentle, dialogue-free visuals, these must be the smallest parts any of them have had for years.
Animated adaptation of the children's book by author Julia Donaldson and illustrator Axel Scheffler, the creators of modern classic The Gruffalo. It tells the story of a kind witch who invites a surprising number of animals to ride on her broom - much to the frustration of her cat. But when a fearsome dragon appears, what will the gang do? Gillian Anderson heads the voice cast as the witch, with Rob Brydon, Martin Clunes, Sally Hawkins and David Walliams as the animals, Timothy Spall as the dragon and Simon Pegg as narrator.
