On April 27, 2012 The Pirates! Band of Misfits comes out. It is a 3D stop motion animated film produced by Aardman Animations in partnership with Sony Pictures Animation. The film is based off of from Gideon Defoe’s The Pirates! series, which makes me slightly giddy because this means I can also get the books to read to the kids. The movie is rated a PG, so it is kids friendly but has a funny cast so it is guaranteed to be good for the adults as well! In The Pirates! Band of Misfits, Hugh Grant stars in his first animated role as the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain – a boundlessly enthusiastic, if somewhat less-than-successful, terror of the High Seas. With a rag-tag crew at his side, and seemingly blind to the impossible odds stacked against him, the Captain has one dream: to beat his bitter rivals Black Bellamy (Jeremy Piven) and Cutlass Liz (Salma Hayek) to the much coveted Pirate Of The Year Award. It’s a quest that takes our heroes from the shores of exotic Blood Island to the foggy streets of Victorian London. Along the way they battle a diabolical queen (Imelda Staunton) and team up with a haplessly smitten young scientist (David Tennant), but never lose sight of what a pirate loves best: adventure!
So while we are all waiting till April 27th for the movie to come out, I will be giving Five lucky readers a The Pirates! Band of Misfits prize pack!
