David Tennant Joins The Cast Of ‘The Amazing Maurice’ Animated Film

‘Ducktales’ reboot and ‘Dr. Who’ alumni David Tennant is joining the growing cast of ‘The Amazing Maurice,’ an animated adaption of the late British novelist Terry Pratchett’s ‘The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents.’
Cinema Express reports that this will be the second adaption of a Terry Pratcher work that Tennant has appeared, the first being ‘The Good Omens,’ from Amazon Prime.
Sky Cinema is producing ‘The Amazing Maurice’ along with Ulysses Filmproduktion, Cantilever Media, Studio Rakete, Red Star Animation and Narrativia. It will make its way onto the NOW streaming service in 2022.
The plot follows “Maurice, a streetwise ginger cat who has the perfect money-making scam. He finds a kid who plays a pipe, and he also befriends his very own horde of strangely educated, talking rats – so Maurice can no longer think of them as ‘lunch’. When Maurice and the rodents reach the stricken town of Bad Blintz, they meet a bookworm, Malicia. Their little con soon goes down the drain as something very bad is waiting for them in the cellars.”
The movie will be directed by Toby Genkel and Florian Westermann with Emilia Clarke (‘Terminator: Genesys’), David Thewlis (‘Wonder Woman’), Himesh Patel (‘Yesterday’) as Keith, Gemma Arterton (‘The King’s Man’), Hugh Bonneville (‘Downton Abbey’), and Hugh Laurie (‘The Personal History of David Copperfield’) as the protagonist Maurice.

Director of Sky Cinema Sarah Wright said in a press release, “’The Amazing Maurice’ is a fantastic story from a legendary author, and I couldn’t think of a better tale to bring to life as an animated film for all the family. I’m excited to work with Ulysses Filmproduktion and Cantilever Media to bring this exclusive new movie to Sky Cinema audiences in 2022.”
‘The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents’ is a children’s fantasy novel written by Pratchett in 2001 by Doubleday as part as his popular ‘Discworld’ book series.
