Above, a little postcard from the upcoming “The Gruffalo’s Child”, directed by Johannes Weiland and Uwe Heidschoetter and produced by our friends at Magic Light Pictures and yours truly. Yesterday we had the pleasure of a beautiful team preview at the Curzon, Mayfair in London and we would like to thank all of you who came along and celebrated with us and especially our friends at MLP for putting together this special day. You can see “The Gruffalo’s Child” this Christmas Day, Dec. 25th on BBC 1.
There was some lovely press lately to accompany our christmas countdown: The Frankfurter Allgemeine ran a long and insightful article on the life and mindset of Axel Scheffler, illustrator (amongst many other great books) of the Gruffalo. Süddeutsche Zeitung ran a very funny review of our adaptation of “The Gruffalo” today, reminding their readers to watch on Christmas Eve what the Stuttgarter Zeitung, in today’s issue, called “possibly the most beautiful thirty minutes of television this year”. Thank you! (image: F.A.Z. / Axel Scheffler)
