Moshi Monsters: The Movie Headed to UK Theaters


moshi-monsters-the movie

The cute and cuddly bunch of popular multiplatform creatures, the Moshi Monsters, will be making their way to UK theaters via the animated feature Moshi Monsters: The Movie, which has been slated for a December 20, 2013 premiere on the country. This marks another move towards expansion by Mind Candy, which started the franchise as an online persistent world that currently boasts of over 80 million registered users in over 150 territories worldwide.

Moshi Monsters: The Movie is being distributed by Universal and is directed by wip Vernooij. The film features a small homage to Indiana Jones as it focuses on a golden Moshi Egg that may contain a new monster, which has been discovered in a secret cave. The viewers then join the well-meaning Katsuma (voiced by Emma Tate) and brave yet adorable Poppet (Phillipa Alexander) and their Moshi Monster pals as they race against time to stop the nefarious Dr. Strangelove (Ashley Slater) and his sidekick Fishlips (Boris Hiestand) from destroying the Great Moshling Egg.

The young fans know the characters well, which naturally saves any need for scene-setting and background development. When it comes to Moshi Monsters: The Movie it is colorful – and rather terrifyingly innocent – entertainment all of the way,” chief film critic Mark Adams notes in a review on ScreenDaily.com. “The animation style is glossy and eye-candy for youngsters – apparently it is animated in CelAction with many of the background elements in 3D – with emphasis on basic styles and bright colors. It is also very manipulative and simple, but certainly appeals to youngsters who are enraptured by the Moshi Monsters’ antics.”
