New Stop-Motion Film ‘Robin Robin’ Coming To Netflix

Stop-motion features are becoming rarer and rarer when it comes to cinema. Fortunately, Aardman Animation is bringing the style back to filmmaking with ‘Robin Robin,’ a tale about a bird who is raised by a family of mice. The film is directed by Dan Ojari and Mikey Please who also co-wrote it with Sam Morrison.
SlashFilm reports that the movie will be a “musical holiday special” and has been picked up by Netflix who slated for release on November 24, 2021, the day before Thanksgiving.
They add that it will focus “on a robin named Robin who is hatched in a dumpster after her egg somehow finds its way out of the nest. But the mice who found her are happy to take her in and make her one of their own as best they can. Since she’s a bird, it’s not easy to fit in with the rodent family. Robin sings frequently and can be quite loud, but she’s also extremely competitive and feels like she has something to prove. So she decides to set off on a big heist to show that she’s just as sneaky as her adoptive family. But what happens when she learns that she’s not a mouse at all?”
‘Robin Robin’ stars Bronte Carmichael as Robin, Adeel Akhtar as Dad Mouse, Amira Macey-Michael as the youngest mouse Dink, Richard E. Grant as the wise bird Magpie, and Gillian Anderson as a villainous Cat.
You can check out the trailer below:

According to the official synopsis, “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.”
