Netflix has released the trailer for their new animated, Christmas short film, Robin Robin, which will arrive on 24th November 2021.

All About the New Aardman Short Film Robin Robin

The 30 minute short, produced for Netflix by Academy Award® winning studio, Aardman, has a cast of super star actors doing the voices including Gillian Anderson, Richard E Grant, Bronte Carmichael and Adeel Akhtar.

It will be streaming on Netflix from 24 November, perfect timing for getting into the Christmas mood!

What’s It About?

When her egg fortuitously rolls into a rubbish dump, Robin is raised by a loving family of burglar mice. As she grows up, her differences become more apparent. Robin sets off on the heist to end all heists to prove to her family that she can be a really good mouse – but ends up discovering who she really is.

The rules of the sneak are simple and thus.
Follow them close you can steal a crust.
Or a crumpet rind, or a pinch of pie,
or the grease from the tip of a soggy french fry!

The Cast of Robin Robin

The stellar cast of characters includes:

  • Robin, voiced by Bronte Carmichael, is adopted by a family of mice when her egg falls from the nest, and raised as one of their own. Not quite a bird and not quite a mouse, but full of determination. Robin sets out on an adventure to prove herself and just maybe, get a sandwich.
  • Adeel Akhtar voices Dad Mouse, a caring but cautious soul who is single-handedly raising a family of five children (one of them happens to be an adopted bird).
  • Magpie, an obsessive collector of shiny ‘stuff’ is voiced by Richard E Grant. Magpie takes Robin under his ‘wing’, on a journey of self-discovery. Underneath his many ruffled feathers he really is a good egg.
  • Gillian Anderson voices Cat, the villain of our story who just so happens to know a place where everything is welcome, her tummy!

The short film is created and directed by Dan Ojari (Slow Derek) and Mikey Please (BAFTA® winner for The Eagleman Stag).
