Originally a children’s book written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, this adaptation for the BBC by Max Lang and Suzanne Lang continues the story of Zog (2018) following Pearl, Gadabout and of course… Zog, as they come to the aid of other fairy tale folk.
When a storm forces them to land at a palace, Pearl finds herself locked up by her uncle, the King, and a plan formulates to not only free herself but to continue to aid others in need. This would not be possible without her trusted companions Zog and Gadabout.
Narrated by Sir Lenny Henry (Penelope) and accompanied by the voice cast of Patsy Ferran (God’s Own Country), Hugh Skinner (Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again) and award-winning British comedic actor Rob Brydon (Gavin and Stacey), this fairy tale story really does come to life, draw you in and captures the imagination.
As you may expect being written by Julia Donaldson, much of the story is told through rhyme. With colourful, interesting, and comical animation combined, this is a perfect family film to engross younger viewers… and older ones too!
ZOG AND THE FLYING DOCTORS is available to own on digital and DVD now from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
