Netflix have released the first look and teaser trailer for the upcoming stop-motion musical holiday special, Robin Robin, which will debut on the service on November 27th, 2021.
The 30 minute special is produced for Netflix by Academy Award winning studio, Aardman Animation, based in Bristol, UK.
The first look and teaser trailer coincides with Robin Robin inclusion at this year’s Annecy Film Festival in the Work in Progress Shorts 2021. The session will include a Q+A moderated by Peter Lord (Director and Co-Founder of Aardman); with Directors Dan Ojari and Mikey Please, and Executive Producer, Sarah Cox.
Golden Globe® winner Gillian Anderson (The Crown) and Oscar® nominee Richard E. Grant (Can You Ever Forgive Me?) lead the cast which also includes Bronte Carmichael (Christopher Robin) and Adeel Akhtar (Enola Holmes).
Bronte Carmichael will voice Robin. When her egg falls from the nest, Robin is adopted by a family of mice, and raised as one of their own. Not quite a bird and not quite a mouse, but full of determination. Robin sets out on an adventure to prove herself and just maybe, get a sandwich.
Adeel Akhtar voices Dad Mouse, a caring but cautious soul who is single-handedly raising a family of five children (one of them happens to be an adopted bird).
Richard E. Grant will voice Magpie, an obsessive collector of shiney ‘stuff’. Magpie takes Robin under his ‘wing’, on a journey of self discovery. Underneath his many ruffled feathers he really is a good egg.
Gillian Anderson voices Cat. The villain of our story who just so happens to know a place where everything is welcome, her tummy!
