I’m so excited I can hardly stand it!! Oliver Jeffers’ second children’s book (and my absolute favorite of his), ‘Lost and Found‘, has been adapted into a short animated film!! Studio AKA has taken this award-winning book and turned it into what will surely be 25 minutes of brilliance!
If you’re lucky enough to be in the UK at Christmas time, it will be shown on Channel 4 at 2.30pm on Christmas Eve, and again at 12.30pm on Boxing Day. For everyone not in the UK or Ireland (which sadly includes me since I’m away on holiday!), you’ll have to wait a bit longer!
P.S. To view the teaser trailer, click here!
Gorgeous trailer, thank you Courtney! We too are big fans and I’m excited to see the full film in a few days. The little guy in our house is getting a smaller, square format of this book for the holidays…it’s the perfect size for him and indeed, just a gorgeous story to inspire a little boy’s imagination.
You can probably watch it on 4OD http://www.channel4.com/4od/index.html which has a free 30 day catch up.
I just can’t wait!
I love that book so much, the first and even the second time I read it to my son we both cried!
wow- I need to get this book- I’m completely in the dark.
i wonder why the boat has a number 4 on it. is the boy 4? and my favourite recurring theme throughout all the books is, birds can be like that …..
Oh man, I wanted to produce an animated film of an Oliver Jeffers book. I remember seeing his designs for the first time and thinking how wonderful it would look animated!
Lovely!!! We LOVE Lost and Found! This is great!!!
I totally agree, Gabrielle. Our favorite saying from the Oliver Jeffers books is… “Some birds are like that…”
here’s the link to watch it: http://www.channel4.com/video/brandless-catchup.jsp?vodBrand=lost-and-found. You’re welcome :0)
Thanks so much for the link!
I tried to watch it, but Channel4 won’t let you watch their programs from outside the UK!
It’s the one good thing to look forward to on my return from holiday…
oooh! thanks for the tip, and yes it is up on channel 4 for another month.
