It is directed by Hilary Audus and Dave Unwin and produced by Novel Entertainment’s Lucinda Whiteley and Mike Watts.

The official synopsis for Horrid Henry on the Big Screen reads:

"Calling all loyal members of the Purple Hand Gang, are you ready to rock?! Henry's back in style on the Vue big screen, with a fantastically brilliant compilation of favourite episodes and brand new music videos. Featuring the best and most horrid of stories, Horrid Henry and the Big Screen sees Henry setting off on a vile vacation (will he ever get rid of old bogey brain next door?), becoming King Henry the Horrible and liking it too much, getting a new and titanic TV, becoming a grown up (but not for long) and, can you believe it, trying to go to school! Nooooooo! So pack up your air guitar and come and join Henry and his friends, family and enemies for the best and most horrid entertainment ever, tee hee!"
