Academy Award winner Aardman is making a stop motion animated Christmas special for Netflix, Robin Robin.
Robin Robin, scheduled for Christmas 2020, tells the story of a robin who 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.
The creators/directors are Dan Ojari (Slow Derek – Grand Prix: Animated Encounter) and Mikey Please (The Eagleman Stag – BAFTA: Best Animated Short, Marilyn Myller – McLaren Award: Edinburgh Film Festival). The producer is Helen Argo (Tate Movie Project, Wallace & Gromit’s Musical Marvels ) and the executive Producer is Sarah Cox (Tate Movie Project and BAFTA nominated Heavy Pockets).
“When Mikey and Dan first pitched us the concept for Robin Robin we knew instantly that this was a rare and special project that we had to make together. It’s a beautifully crafted stop-frame musical that immediately feels classic whilst being groundbreaking and modern.” Said Sarah Cox, Executive Producer.
“Together with Aardman, we’re thrilled to celebrate and introduce new generations of families around the world to the craft of stop motion animation through Robin Robin, a magical tale that warms the heart and can be enjoyed by the whole family.” Said Alexi Wheeler, Manager of Kids and Family International Originals at Netflix.
Robin Robin is currently in production at Aardman’s Bristol studio.
Robin Robin will join Netflix’s growing family-friendly animated slate, which includes Sergio Pablos’s Klaus (streaming now), Kris Pearn’s The Willoughbys, Glen Keane’s Over The Moon, Henry Selick’s Wendell & Wild, Nora Twomey’s My Father’s Dragon, Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio, Chris Williams’ Jacob and the Sea Beast, and Mark Osborne’s Escape From Hat.
