Based on the children’s book by Axel Scheffler and the UK’s Julia Donaldson, the short features an impressive all-star British voice cast including Oscar nominee Sally Hawkins, Bridgerton’s Adjoa Andoh, Meera Syal, Bill Bailey and Wales-born Rob Brydon. Co-produced by UK outfits BBC One, BBC iPlayer and Magic Light Pictures.





Bill (Daniel Ezra) and Janet (Ashna Rabheru) fall in love, but sadly their families do not get along. Faced with disapproval, they run away, as Grandma Smoo (Adjoa Andoh) and Grandpa Smed (Bill Bailey) are forced to put aside their differences in order to get Bill and Janet home.
