Channel 4 announces cast for animated Christmas special ‘Terry Pratchett's The Abominable Snow Baby’ from Eagle Eye Drama
Channel 4 has announced a trio of top stars to head up their high-profile Christmas 2021 animated special Terry Pratchett's The Abominable Snow Baby produced by Eagle Eye Drama, the production company recently launched by the team behind global drama brand Walter Presents, in association with Narrativia, the independent production company, launched in 2012 by one of Britain's most illustrious and well-loved authors, Sir Terry Pratchett.
Terry Pratchett's The Abominable Snow Baby, based on one of legendary author Sir Terry's best-selling short stories tells the story of a quintessentially English town which is thrown into disarray by a huge snowfall and the dramatic appearance of a 14-feet tall Abominable Snow Baby. Shunned and feared by the local townsfolk, Snow Baby is rescued by an indomitable Granny who along with grandson Albert, welcomes him into her home, showering her new pet with love and affection, changing the town's perception and helping the community overcome their initial prejudices.
Screen legend and comedy icon Julie Walters (Harry Potter, Mamma Mia, Paddington) will star as the voice of fearless 'Granny', whilst Hugh Dancy (Black Hawk Down, Ella Enchanted, Hannibal, Downton Abbey 2) will take on the role of her courageous grandson 'Albert' with narration from 'Homeland' star David Harewood (Homeland, Supergirl, Blood Diamond)
