POSTMAN PAT: THE MOVIE is an upcoming 3D animated film featuring Postman Pat, star of a long-running BBC children’s series. It is directed by Mike Disa (Hoodwinked Too!) from a screenplay co-written by Kim Fuller and Annika Bluhm, the latter being the long-time producer of the Postman Pat television series.
Stephen Mangan (Rush) voices the beloved Postman Pat himself, with singer-songwriter Ronan Keating lending his voice as Pat’s singing voice, alongside David Tennant, Rupert Grint, and Jim Broadbent completing the voice cast.
The film 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…
