Irish co-production Four Kids And It releases exclusively on Sky Cinema this April 3rd
01 Apr 2020 : News Desk
Four Kids And It releases on April 3rd.
Based on the book by Jacqueline Wilson and starring Russell Brand, Matthew Goode, Paula Patton and the voice of Sir Michael Caine

Sky’s forthcoming original title, Four Kids and It will be available to audiences on Sky Cinema on 3 April, a week earlier than previously announced.

Due to the recent closure of cinemas, the film will no longer receive a simultaneous theatrical release as originally planned, but families will still be able to enjoy it in the comfort of their homes.

Set on the beautiful Cornish coast, Four Kids and It is a fun-filled family adventure based on Jacqueline Wilson’s hugely popular children’s book, Four Children and It, in which four kids embark on the ultimate journey to discover if a magical creature can really make all their wishes come true. 

New couple Alice (Patton) and David (Goode) take their less than enthusiastic children on a family holiday to a Cornish cottage to meet each other for the first time.  The holiday takes an unexpected turn when, on the local beach, the kids discover a magical and very grumpy Psammead (Caine), a creature with the power to grant magical wishes.  Unfortunately, they also run into local aristocratic oddball Tristan (Brand), who wants to capture the Psammead for his own gain.  The ensuing adventure brings the new siblings together and helps them to accept their parents’ newfound happiness.

Directed by Andy De Emmony, Four Kids and It is produced by Julie Baines of Dan Films and Anne Brogan of Kindle Entertainment and co-produced by Jonathan Taylor and Paul Donovan of Deadpan Pictures.  Jwanwat Ahriyavraromp for T&B Media Global, Tannaz Anisi and Gregory R. Schenz for 13 Films and Geraldine East were Executive Producers.  The film is written by Simon Lewis (Tiger House, The Anomaly) with additional writing by Mark Oswin (Danger Mouse, 4 O’clock Club).  Sky acquired the film from 13 Films.
