Available on NRK TV, C More
A half hour family animated film based on the much-loved children’s book written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler. THE HIGHWAY RAT tells the tale of a ravenous rat who craves buns, biscuits and all sweet things. Tearing along the highway, he searches for sugary treats to steal, until his sweet tooth leads him to a sticky end. “Give me your pastries and puddings! Give me your chocolate and cake! For I am the Rat of the Highway, and whatever I want I take.” A swashbuckling tale of bandits and biscuits which the whole family will enjoy. From Magic Light Pictures, producers of the hugely successful The Gruffalo, The Gruffalo’s Child, Room on the Broom, Stick Man and most recently, Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes. Featuring the voices of David Tennant as The Highway Rat, Rob Brydon as the Narrator, Nina Sosanya as the Duck, Tom Hollander as the Squirrel and Frances de le Tour as the Rabbit.
