Peppa Pig and Friends Return to the Big Screen to Celebrate 15 Years of Muddy Puddles with 'Peppa Pig: Festival of Fun'

Peppa Pig and Friends Return to the Big Screen to Celebrate 15 Years of Muddy Puddles with PEPPA PIG: FESTIVAL OF FUN

Ten Brand New and Never-Before-Seen Episodes and Live Action Musical Content will Give Fans One Hour of Peppa Fun Only in Cinemas

Get Ready to Party with 2-Part Episode Special featuring Peppa’s Family and Friends Visiting a Children’s Festival

UK - Join the party in spring 2019 when Entertainment One’s (eOne) beloved preschool series Peppa Pig will be heading back into cinemas nationwide for an all-new big screen adventure to mark the 15 year anniversary of the nation’s favourite little piggy! Set for release from April 2019, Peppa Pig: Festival of Fun is perfectly timed to entertain little ones ahead of the Easter holidays.

The hour-long theatrical release gives preschool audiences 10 brand new and never-before-broadcast episodes featuring a 2-part festival special, complete with new characters and locations. Little piggies can look forward to a whole hour of snorts and giggles with songs to sing along to and dances and movements to join in with; making it the prefect cinema outing for pre-schoolers and all the family to enjoy. Each of the ten brand-new episodes will be connected with never-before-seen interactive entertainment featuring little ones singing and playing along with their favourite onscreen characters.

The new release is part of eOne’s successful My First Cinema Experience format which offers young children a gentle introduction to the cinema for little ones and features the familiar voice talents of Harley Bird (Peppa), Morwenna Banks (Mummy Pig), Richard Ridings (Daddy Pig), Sarah Ann Kennedy (Miss Rabbit) and John Sparkes (narrator).

Peppa Pig My First Cinema Experience took in £3.7 million ($4.7 million) at the U.K. box office in 2017.

Get excited for the upcoming festival season with the release of Peppa Pig: Festival of Fun and join Peppa and George in their brand new ‘oink-tastic’ adventures as they dance in the mud at a children’s festival, celebrate Grandpa Pig’s birthday at a restaurant for the first time, and take a trip to the cinema to see Super Potato’s big movie feature.

Peppa Pig airs on Nick Jr. and Viacom’s Channel 5 Milkshake in the U.K., and on Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. channels globally. No date has been set yet for the new Festival of Fun episodes to run on TV, but the expectation is that they will launch next fall. A DVD and download release will have the new instalments as well as the interactive content.

Peppa Pig is created by Neville Astley and Mark Baker and produced by Astley Baker Davies Ltd and Entertainment One (eOne).

The animated preschool show is one of eOne’s key properties. Last year it announced that 117 new episodes were entering production, which will start airing next year and take the total episode count to 381.
