It’s a question nobody asked, but we’ll be getting an answer anyway: what would David Mitchell be like playing a Panda Policeman?
Well, Mitchell is voicing a character called …WAIT FOR IT… Policeman Panda in the upcoming Peppa Pig My First Cinema Experience.
He’ll be starring alongside Jo Brand, who’ll be voicing a crocodile (10 points if you guessed her character’s name was ‘Mrs. Crocodile’) across nine episodes woven into one hour of film being released at cinemas.
And what can you expect if you take kids to see it/accidentally buy tickets to it thinking you were buying a packet of Percy pigs? ‘Oink-tastic’ storylines like ‘Peppa Visits London’ where Peppa and her friends hop on board a double-decker red bus as the Queen (yes, THE Queen) takes them on a tour of Big Ben, Tower Bridge and Trafalgar Square. And that’s before a wellied-up Her Majesty gets the whole piggy gang jumping around in muddy puddles. As well she might.
Look out for David Mitchell’s “‘ello ‘ello ‘ello” at the 30-second mark in the trailer below…
Peppa Pig My First Cinema Experience will be released in cinemas nationwide from 7th April 2017.
