★★★★★ ‘Spellbindingly imaginative. A dazzling production.’
All children, except one, grow up…
Captured live at the National Theatre, a recorded performance of JM Barrie’s much-loved tale screens in cinemas this summer.
When Peter Pan, leader of the Lost Boys, loses his shadow, headstrong Wendy helps him to reattach it. In return, she is invited to Neverland, where Tinker Bell the fairy, Tiger Lily and the vengeful Captain Hook await. A riot of magic, music and make-believe ensues.
A delight for children and adults alike, Sally Cookson (NT Live: Jane Eyre) directs this wondrously inventive production, a co-production with Bristol Old Vic theatre.
Judi and Ron Barrett’s bestselling children’s picturebook CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS is brought to life in gorgeous and innovative animation. Flint is a young inventor who tends to cause havoc with his crazy creations. When the island he lives on closes its sardine-canning factory, he hopes a device that turns water into food can save his neighbours from a constant diet of smelly fish. With the source material providing a brilliant premise, the film has great fun with the idea that any type of food can be programmed into Flint’s incredible machine and dropped from the sky - leading to ice-cream snow drifts and school-crushing pancakes. With an eclectic vocal cast, a talking monkey and an all-action finale, this is a genuinely entertaining film for all the family.
A wisecracking, teenage monkey, lives on an abandoned planet with his friends Chunk the pig, a fox called Vix, and lots of tiny bugs.
Thirteen years ago, power-hungry Zhong seized control of their planet Bana, wiping out Spark’s family and sending him into hiding. Now, Zhong plans to use the deadly space Kraken to destroy the entire universe, and only Spark and his ragtag gang can stop him.
Now, Spark must journey across the universe, in order to defeat the evil emperor Zhong and save the galaxy once and for all!
