Aardman Creating Holiday Special Robin Robin for Netflix

-

BAFTA and Academy Award-winning studio Aardman is developing the stop-motion animated holiday special Robin Robin for Netflix. Aardman are the creators of Wallace & GromitShaun the SheepCreature ComfortsChicken Run, and more.

In the special, Robin is raised by a loving family of mice after her egg fortuitously rolls into a rubbish dump. 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 special is currently in production at Aardman’s award-winning studio in the UK and will debut on Netflix in time for the holidays in 2020.

The creators and directors are Dan Ojari (Slow Derek) and Mikey Please (The Eagleman Stag, Marilyn Myller). The producer is Helen Argo (Tate Movie Project, Wallace & Gromit’s Musical Marvels) and executive producer is Sarah Cox (Tate Movie Project, 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.

Alexi Wheeler, Manager of Kids and Family International Originals at Netflix, added:“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.”

A number of Aardman’s beloved films, such as Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Flushed Away and Shaun the Sheep Movie, are currently available for members to enjoy on Netflix in most countries.
