“A Christmas classic in the making”, Robin Robin is a 30-minute, stop motion musical holiday special from Aardman, starring Gillian Anderson and Richard E Grant.
When her egg fortuitously rolls into a rubbish dump, Robin 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.
Bronte Carmichael will voice Robin. When her egg falls from the nest, Robin is adopted by a family of mice, and raised as one of their own. Not quite a bird and not quite a mouse, but full of determination, Robin sets out on an adventure to prove herself and just maybe, get a sandwich.
Adeel Akhtar voices Dad Mouse, a caring but cautious soul who is single-handedly raising a family of five children (one of them happens to be an adopted bird).
Richard E. Grant will voice Magpie, an obsessive collector of shiney stuff. Magpie takes Robin under his wing, on a journey of self discovery. Underneath his many ruffled feathers he really is a good egg.
Gillian Anderson voices Cat. The villain of our story who just so happens to know a place where everything is welcome, her tummy!
Robin Robin lands on Netflix on 27 November 2021. The film is created and directed by Dan Omari and Mikey Please.
