Room On The Broom DVD
The 'Room On The Broom' film shown on the BBC over Christmas will be released on DVD on 18th March and available to download in standard and high definition format from 19th.
This enchanting tale of friendship and family has been beautifully adapted from Julia Donaldson's magical picture book by the same creative team that brought us 'The Gruffalo' and 'The Gruffalo’s Child'. 'Room On The Broom' is again produced by Michael Rose and Martin Pope of Magic Light Pictures ('The Gruffalo', 'The Gruffalo’s Child', 'Chico & Rita'), animated in the same textural GC style by the outstanding Studio Soi in Germany, directed by Max Lang (who also directed the original 'Gruffalo' special) and René Aubry has composed the music.
In addition to the animated short there is even more to discover with the DVD’s special features including:
'The Magnificent Broom' - an exclusive behind the scenes look at the making of 'Room on the Broom'. Meet the creators of the film and learn how the story of the witch and her friends flew out of the pages of the popular book onto the screen.
'Live Stage Performance' - Watch a live performance of 'Room on the Broom' by author & Children’s Laureate Julia Donaldson. As part of her 2012 nationwide tour Julia visited a library in Eastbourne, which has its own underground theatre – the perfect stage for storytelling!
'Art Gallery' - Take a peek at the film’s original colour concepts. Beautiful illustrations presented with music from the film.
The official 'Room On The Broom' website contains more information and a whole host of kids games and merchandise, including this rather adorable range of plush toys.
