Cbeebies annual Christmas performances are a staple of the festive entertainment for anyone who has young children - and this year, for the first time the show will be shown in cinemas giving kids the chance to see the film on the big screen.
Born inside a flower, she marvels at the world around her but quickly realises she doesn’t know what, where or who she is. She has no name and is lost and alone, with only a dream to fly like a butterfly. She is drawn to the warmth and excitement of a nearby animal party where bugs, spiders, toads, and mice are celebrating the End of Summer and Start of Winter, but the party is not what it seems. Can Thumbelina find the strength to stand up for herself as the animals bicker over her and will she discover the truth about who she really is?
The show will feature sixties themed music and performances from Justin 'Mr Tumble' Fletcher, Ben Faulks and Andy Day along with lots of other familiar Cbeebies faces.
The makers of Alice in Wonderland, A Christmas Carol and Snow Queen will delight audiences this year with the classic tale of Thumbelina and in addition cinema-goers will see an exclusive show, “Justin’s Countdown to Christmas” starring the much-loved Justin Fletcher (Something Special).
Thumbelina will premiere in select cinemas on 9th December and will open nationwide on 15th December.
