Postman Pat The Movie Gets Release Date

Another of David's film projects has a release date; Postman Pat: The Movie - You Know You're The One is scheduled for a UK cinema release on 24th May 2013, Classic Media confirms.
They have teamed up with Icon Film Distribution, Lionsgate UK and RGH Entertainment - the animation development and production unit of Rubicon Group Holding.

What's it about?
What happens when Light meets Dark? When kindness meets selfishness? When local fame meets global notoriety? A nice cup of tea is kicked aside by a frappacappucino? Everyone’s favourite postie, Postman Pat, comes face to face with the dark side of the fame dream when he enters a national TV talent show and the demons of money, status and a new shiny suit conspire to tear Pat away from his friends, family and the small home town which loves him.
In a new fully 3-D, stop frame animated movie – for 3-8 year olds and their families – the much adored children’s TV icon, Postman Pat hits the big screen for the first time and is faced with challenges he’s never met before which really test him. With newly composed super powered pop songs, brand new sets and a host of new characters alongside the beloved favourites, Postman Pat The Movie is set to enthral a whole new generation of children and have them on the edge of their velvet cinema booster seats in their pint sized 3D specs – just like Pats! Spectacular!

David will be joined in the film by a stellar cast, with Jim Broadbent and Rupert Grint also voicing characters and  Stephen Mangan taking on the lead role as Pat.

David recently revealed during an interview with Chris Moyles on Radio1 that he will be playing a new character not seen in the TV version of Postman Pat.

He also spoke very briefly about the top secret film at the premiere of his latest film, The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists!, saying:
""Yes, I'm working with Rupert Grint. I've already told you more than I'm allowed!"
He also confirmed Pat's feline pal Jess would be present saying:
 "Oh yes, it's Postman Pat. Are you mental?"
When asked if his latest roles where a return to his childhood he replied:
"It's just the way it has worked out, I think. It's just what I have been asked to do, but I will definitely not turn down the chance to be in The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists or Postman Pat. That would be crazy." He does have a point!
