The problem with a lot of the CG animated movies that aren’t backed by big studios and enormous budgets is that the end result looks a little shoddy. It’s great to see then a British/German independent production that both looks polished and as if it might be quite fun.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘This truly global family adventure features an all-star voice cast, including Emily Watson (On Chesil Beach), Jason Isaacs (The Death of Stalin), Nick Frost (The Huntsman: Winter’s War), Jessica Brown Findlay (Downton Abbey), Celia Imrie (Bridget Jones’s Diary) and Catherine Tate (Doctor Who).
‘Based on David Safier’s best-selling novel, MONSTER FAMILY follows the very much unhappy Wishbone clan, Frank, Emma and their kids Max and Fay – under pressure and constantly at each other’s throats. When they are cursed by an evil witch and transformed into their own monstrous party costumes, they must pull together to battle real-life beasts; reverse the curse; and prove that even a vampire, a mummy, a werewolf, and Frankenstein’s monster can eventually form one big happy family. When the Wishbones snap, only love can stitch them back together…’
Monster Family will be released in cinemas across the UK & Ireland on 2nd March, 2018. Take a look at the trailer below.
