Aardman Studios has teamed up with Netflix to produce Robin Robin. The 30-minute special centers on what Animation Magazine calls a robin’s “brilliant heist to end all heists”:
The “mini-movie” tells the story of a bird, who is raised by a loving family of mice, after her egg rolls into a rubbish dump. As she grows up, Robin needs to prove that she can be a really good mouse, despite her physical differences, so she embarks on a brilliant heist to end of all heists.Animation Magazine
Animation Magazine notes that the studio, famous for its award-winning stop-animation films, has switched up its game for Robin Robin, teaming up with Netflix instead of its long-time partners Channel 4 and the BBC, the reason being financial pressures and Netflix’s global platform. Netflix also picked up Aardman’s A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon which will debut in early 2020.
Created and directed by Dan Ojari and Mikey Please, Robin Robin is scheduled for Christmas 2020.
