Blinky Bill The Movie - UK Trailer
Join cheeky Aussie koala Blinky Bill as he goes on the adventure of a lifetime when Blinky Bill: The
Movie comes to cinemas nationwide on 19th August!
The cast of Blinky Bill: The Movie is led by Ryan Kwanten (True Blood) as the voice of Blinky Bill, Rufus Sewell (A Knights Tale, The Holiday) as the treacherous feral cat Sir Claude and Robin McLeavy (Hell On Wheels) as Blinky’s best friend Nutsy.
Starring alongside them is Toni Collette (Little Miss Sunshine, About a Boy) as two charming yet gossipy emus called Sheryl and Beryl, Deborah Mailman (The Sapphires) as Blinky’s kind and courageous Mum and Barry Humphries (Dame Edna Everage) as the wildly eccentric Wombo the wombat.
Rounding off this esteemed ensemble are David Wenham (The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King) as the manic but loveable frill-necked lizard Jacko, Barry Otto (The Great Gatsby) as the tyrannical Mayor Cranklepot and Richard Roxburgh (Moulin Rouge) as Blinky’s adventure-loving father.
Blinky Bill is a koala with a big imagination. An adventurer at heart, he dreams of leaving the little town of Greenpatch and following in his explorer father’s footsteps. Mr Bill went missing in the Outback some time ago and Blinky is the only one who believes his father is still alive.
When Blinky discovers a mysterious marker that hints at his Dad’s whereabouts, he embarks on a
journey that takes him into the dangerous Outback. He quickly makes friends with Nutsy, a zoo koala, and Jacko, a nervous frill-necked lizard. Pursued relentlessly by a vengeful Cat who has a personal score to settle with Blinky, the trio must learn to work together if they ever want to survive the rugged Australian landscape and find Blinky’s father!
Blinky Bill: The Movie is based on the classic Australian book series by Dorothy Wall and directed by Deane Taylor (Art Director of Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas). From an original
screenplay by Fin Edquist (Maya the Bee), the film was produced by StudioCanal and Screen Australia in association with Flying Bark Productions and will be distributed in the UK by Enchanted Animation.
