It’s Looking Like an Aardman Christmas

This week Netflix has released the first look and teaser trailer for the upcoming stop-animation 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’s 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).

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.

Bronte Carmichael will voice Robin.

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!
