David Tennant did a podcast with James Corden. When asked if his children liked that he did voice acting on Trolls, James replied: “They love that I’m in Trolls, they like that I’m Peter Rabbit. Nothing has ever. ..nothing has ever stumped the Gruffalo, I don’t think. ‘Cause that’s… just, you know… a very … yeah: That’s lovely. And I think my youngest daughter is about to discover that quite soon.” It’s so nice that those two films still have a place in his heart and we loved hearing him mentioning it. The way he talks about it is worth listening to rather than reading it.

The rest of the podcast is great as well and features a lot of David Tennant’s guests.
On July, 22 there was a double feature screening of the Gruffalo and Gruffalo’s Child in Spilamberto, Italy. Ludwigsburg’s media representative Tannino Bellanca kindly sent us photos of the event. And here’s an Italian summary from the catalogue:
Creatura ibrida, metà orso e metà bufalo, il Gruffalò è il protagonista di un celeberrimo libro. Grazie al talento dello Studio Soi, la storia dell’incontro di questo strano essere mostruoso con uno scaltro topolino, sono diventati due divertenti e pluripremiati film d’animazione.
Last week, our short film ‘The Gruffalo’ by Jakob Schuh and Max Lang has been choosen as the best children’s fiction programme of the last 50 years at this year’s Prix Jeunesse in Munich. ‘The Little Boy And The Beast’ by Johannes Weiland and Uwe Heidschötter has been one of the finalists of this section as well.
Congratulations to the teams!
On Sunday as part of the children’s show Siebenstein our very first shortfilm “Torvald und der Tannenbaum” will be shown at 10:35 am on KiKa in HD.
Have a HAPPY CHRISTMAS everyone!
Oh, the joys of the internet, look what we found on amazon UK: Starting Oct. 1st you can apparently order both “The Gruffalo” and “The Gruffalo’s Child” in one sweet looking tin suitcase, just big enough for a Mouse-sandwich and a piece of Gruffalo-crumble, once you’ve removed the DVD’s. Nice!
