BBC One’s animated Zog adaptation will premiere on Christmas Day (Tuesday December 25th) at 4:50pm, it has been announced.
Based on the 2010 book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, Zog tells the story of the eponymous character who is a keen but accident-prone dragon who gets himself into mischief whilst learning how to fly, roar, breathe fire and fight knights in his first four years at Dragon School.
Each year he meets a kindly young girl who patches up his bumps and bruises, but can she help him with his trickiest challenge yet: It’s Year Five, and he has to capture a princess! The animated adaptation is produced by Magic Light Pictures and features the voices of Sir Lenny Henry, Hugh Skinner, Tracey Ullman, Patsy Ferran, Kit Harington and Rob Brydon.
