Rob Letterman’s big screen adaptation of Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels is out in UK cinemas on the 26th of December and we had the chance to sit down with the director and cast to get their take on this larger than life tale.

Billy Connolly is one of the most celebrated comedians alive today and his role as King of the Lilliputians alongside Catherine Tate, James Corden, Chris O’Dowd and Emily Blunt is his latest role in a nicely eclectic filmograpy which takes in The Last Samurai, a role in the recent X-Files film and the two Boondock Saints films.

We sat down with the man to talk about working on this classic tale. Check out our interviews with Emily Blunt tomorrow and director Rob Letterman on Wednesday and you can see our review of the film on the site this Thursday.
