Every country seems to have their own beloved childhood characters that never enter our pop culture bubble, and one of them from across the pond is getting the feature film treatment. In a press release, Classic Media and RGH Entertainment announced a big screen adaptation of the British stop-motion animated TV series" Postman Pat." However, the film, titled Postman Pat: The Movie – You Know You’re the One will be a 3D computer animated feature that includes the voice talents of Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter franchise), David Tennant (Fright Night) and more. More below!!
The film will follow everyone’s favorite postman (created in 1981), 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. British TV star Stephen Mangan ("Episodes") will play the titular postman and in addition to the voices of Grint and Tennant, Jim Broadbent (Moulin Rouge) will also lend his voice to the animated film. Ironically enough, the latter three actors have all appeared in the Harry Potter franchise (though there aren't many big name British actors who haven't appeared in the multi-billion dollar series). Anyone overseas excited for the movie?
