Actually, this is the new film from Aardman Animations, who always do great work - Wallace and Gromit, anyone? - and stars the voices of James MacAvoy, Hugh Laurie, Jim Broadbent, Bill "It's quite alright, I ran it under a cold tap!" Nighy, Imelda Staunton, and Ashley Jensen. This is also directed by Sarah Smith , who also worked on BRASS EYE and with director Armando Iannucci (IN THE LOOP), and Barry Cook, who's worked on many of the great Disney animated classics. Then you've got the script by Smith and Peter Baynham, who's brought the funny in such shows as BRASS EYE and I AM ALAN PARTRIDGE. So, yeah, this might be more than your average Christmas kids' fare.
