It's a tad too long and kind of just feels like more of the same.

'THE GRUFFALO'S CHILD': Two and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

This 2011 TV animated short film is a sequel to the 2009 animated short 'THE GRUFFALO', which was nominated for a 2011 Academy Award. Once again it's based on a children's book (of the same name) by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. It was adapted for the screen by Donaldson and Johanna Stuttmann and directed by Uwe Heidschotter and Johannes Weiland. It features the same all star voice cast as the original (including Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, John Hurt, Rob Brydon, James Corden and Tom Wilkinson). Coltrane once again voices the beast known as 'The Gruffalo' and in this story he's telling tales to his daughter (Shirley Henderson) of a 'Big Bad Mouse'. The child then ventures out to find the ferocious mouse and comes across various other animals on her journey (including the snake, owl and fox from the original film). It was screened with the 2013 Oscar nominated animated shorts in theaters and billed as 'highly commended'. At 27 minutes it's a tad too long and kind of just feels like more of the same (as the original film). It once again is nothing special as well. It will probably fascinate small children but no one else. I don't especially care for the animation in these films either.
