Remember that animated Top Cat movie from a few years back? Well your prayers have been answered because they’ve made a prequel… most likely due to huge public demand.
Everyone’s favourite feline star embarks on a brand new feature-length animated adventure, which comes to cinemas on 27th May.
The film stars Jason Harris (Top Cat: The Movie, Rio 2), David Hoffman (Bridesmaids) and Chris Edgerly (Happy Feet, The Simpsons) and is directed Andres Couturier.
Tracing the roots of the famous animated series from cartoon legends Hanna-Barbera, this tells the ‘tail’ of how our hero, T.C. created his infamous, Manhattan alley cats gang.
Poor, lonely and living on the streets, Top Cat is one sad cat, until a chance meeting with Benny, a naive and good-hearted cat looking for adventure. The pair quickly become best buddies – and partners in crime – pick pocketing their way out of poverty and quickly believing they are the real cats’ whiskers!
Setting their sights higher, they decide to steal from Mr. Big, a mysterious diamond-stealing henchman who rules New York’s backstreets. As Top Cat and Benny hatch a plan to take the diamonds for themselves, little do they know, success is just the start of their problems.
Along the way, our heroes meet fellow alley cats Choo Choo, Fancy-Fancy and Brain, and together they’re a formidable bunch. However, when Mr. Big catches up with them and captures Top Cat, can his new friends save the day?
