“Once a year, the hoomans take the spikiest tree in the woods, put a shiny magic star on top, make a wish, and in the morning… they get anything they want!” Netflix has debuted a full trailer for the stop-motion animated holiday special from Aardman called Robin Robin. It’s arriving on Netflix this November just in time for the holiday season. Described as a stop-motion animated “future Christmas classic.” Created by its two directors Dan Ojari and Mikey Please, Robin Robin is the endearing story of a robin who is adopted by a family of burglar mice when her egg rolls into a rubbish dump. She 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. She tries to steal an X-mas star from a hooman home?! Amazing. And maybe she’ll get a sandwich, too. The voice cast includes Bronte Carmichael as Robin, plus Adeel Akhtar, Richard E. Grant, and Gillian Anderson. I am soooo looking forward to this! It looks delightfully adorable and quirky, with a dash of nefarious fun.
Here’s the full trailer (+ poster) for Daniel Ojari & Michael Please’s Robin Robin, from Netflix’s YouTube:
