The Highway Rat Cast revealed

It's been a challenge to keep this cast a secret for almost a year. But finally I can reveal my dream team; David Tennant, Tom Hollander, Nina Sosanya, Frances de la Tour and Rob Brydon will be the key players in this year's BBC One TV Christmas special 'The Highway Rat'. It's been a delight to be in the recording studio with such talent. They have really helped to bring Julia Donaldson's and Axel Scheffler's woodland animals to life, each with their own unique personalities. We spent the last 7 months animating them at Triggerfish Animation Studios, and didn't get bored listening to the same lines over again... definitely a good sign. The combination of Tennant as a greedy Rat and Brydon as an entertaining narrator feels like a perfect match to me. At Magic Light Pictures, we are looking forward to Christmas already!
