Penguin Random House is gearing up for the launch of a brand-new Peppa Pig picture book, titled Peppa Goes to London!
The launch of the new title will coincide with Entertainment One’s My Fist Cinema Experience initiative this April, in which exclusive Peppa Pig TV episodes will be screened at select cinemas in the UK.
Peppa Goes to London is a specially designed story focusing on Peppa and George’s first trip to the capital city of the UK, featuring entertaining and educational visits to famous landmarks. The title will also feature a special cameo from the Queen herself.
‘Perfect for keeping toddlers and young children entertained on coaches, car journeys, trains and planes, Peppa Goes to London is enjoying a timely release on Thursday, April 6th ahead of the Easter Holidays, prime time for vacationing and staycationing parents and Peppa Pig fans alike,’ read a statement from Penguin Random House.
‘With Peppa’s My First Cinema Experience coming to cinemas all across the UK in time for school break, our book is the ideal companion for the brand new episodes and offers a unique view of one of the world’s most famous cities.’
In Peppa Pig My First Cinema Experience, the nine brand-new five-minute episodes of Peppa Pig and sing-along content will only be available in cinemas. The episodes will be connected with never-before-seen interactive entertainment featuring live-action Peppa and George characters, along with their friend Daisy. The release will include special appearances from new characters including Policeman Panda voiced by David Mitchell and Mrs Crocodile voiced by Jo Brand. In the first episode, titled "Peppa Vists London", the Queen will make a return to Peppa Pig, as she takes Peppa and friends on an unforgettable sight-seeing tour around London on a double decker bus. Eight additional episodes will see a trip to the zoo, a cruise along a canal and some advice from the police. To celebrate, eOne has released the first UK teaser trailer and film poster. Children and parents can join in with games as well as singing and dancing along to new versions of favourite nursery rhymes.
Airing regularly on Nick Jr. UK & Ireland & Nick Jr. Too, Peppa Pig follows the adventures of Peppa, a loveable, exuberant little piggy who lives with her brother George, Mummy Pig and Daddy Pig. Peppa's favorite things include playing games, dressing up, spending days outdoors, and jumping in muddy puddles. All episodes are wholesome entertainment for the entire family; Peppa's adventures always end happily with loud snorts of laughter. Peppa Pig episodes are available on DVD.
