The animated feature will be hitting UK cinemas in the spring, and Lionsgate have launched the first trailer to give us an idea of the family-friendly adventure coming our way soon.
Postman Pat: The Movie finds Pat, everyone’s favourite postman, coming face-to-face with the temptations of money, status and a shiny new suit when he enters a national TV talent show competition that threatens to tear him away from his hometown of Greendale and the friends he loves. What happens when kindness meets selfishness? When local fame meets global notoriety? A nice cup of tea is kicked aside by a frappacappucino? Pat is set to find out as he falls for the age old temptation of the grass being greener…
Stephen Mangan voices the beloved Postman Pat himself, with Ronan Keating lending his voice as Pat’s singing voice, alongside David Tennant, Rupert Grint, and Jim Broadbent completing the voice cast.
Mike Disa (Hoodwinked Too!) directs from a script co-written by Kim Fuller (Spice World, Rory Bremner) and Annika Bluhm, a long-running producer on the original Postman Pat TV series.
Postman Pat: The Movie will be released in 3D in the UK and Ireland on 23rd May. Be sure to let us know your thoughts about this first look at the character’s cinematic debut in the comments below.
