One wild and windy night, the Gruffalo's Child ignores her father's warnings and bravely tiptoes out into the snow in search of the Big Bad Mouse. She meets Snake, Owl and Fox but no sign of the fabled Mouse. He doesn't really exist...or does he? A beautifully animated film based on the best-selling children's picture book by author Julia Donaldson and illustrator Axel Scheffler. A companion film to the hugely successful, The Gruffalo. Directed by Johannes Weiland & Uwe Heidschötter with the voices of Helena Bonham Carter, Rob Brydon, Robbie Coltrane, James Corden, Shirley Henderson, John Hurt and Tom Wilkinson.
