Aardman’s The Pirates! Set Sail Today!


Aardman’s The Pirates! Set Sail Today!
Aardman’s (Wallace and Gromit, Flushed Away) Newest big screen feature The Pirates! Band of Misfits will make its big screen premiere today, April 27, 2012. The brilliant stop-motion animated film will feature the voices of Hugh Grant, David Tennant, Salma Hayek, and Imelda Staunton giving life to a story based on Gideon Defoe’s hilarious series of books about a crew of amateur pirates under the direction of an ambitious but equally inexperienced Pirate Captain.

“I remember when the book crossed my desk, I picked it up, read a few pages and laughed so hard,” recalls director/producer Peter Lord as he shows a visitor to the Sony Animation building in Culver City, Calif. some of the actual puppets used in the production. “I thought the author’s way of looking at the pirates’ world was so fresh. Here was this story about a crew of relentlessly optimistic pirates that was perfect for us.”
