Ruth Negga stars in Brown Bag Films’ Adaptation of ‘Angela’s Christmas’ from Frank McCourt
13 Jun 2017 :
The half-hour CG film is currently in production in Ireland, based on the only children’s book from the Pulitzer Prize winning author. Lucy O’Connell from ‘Song of the Sea’ lends her vocal talents as the daughter of Oscar-nominated Negga.

'Angela's Christmas' is in the early stages of animation and lighting and is expected to wrap in early November, with CG production taking place at two-time Oscar nominated Brown Bag Films' Dublin based studio. 9 Story Distribution International is handling worldwide distribution.

Damien O'Connor directs a script has has co-written with Will Collins (Wolfwalkers). Frank McCourt’s widow Ellen McCourt serves as an Executive Producer while his brother Malachy, an Irish-American actor, writer and politician, provides the narration.

Set in Ireland in the early 1900s, 'Angela's Christmas' is a funny, heart-warming and poignant story about the power of family and the innocent desire of a child to ensure everyone is safe, warm and loved at Christmas time.

Ellen McCourt, Executive Producer:
"I am so thrilled to see this beloved story come to life as an animated film. Brown Bag Films’ unparalleled artistry in animation, combined with their Irish roots make them the perfect partner to tell Frank’s children’s classic in a new way."

Darragh O’Connell, Creative Director:
"Angela's Christmas is such a special story. McCourt has a way of capturing the mind of young Angela that will have you laughing and crying. The story lends itself beautifully to animation and we are so excited to share this with audiences around the world."

'Angela’s Christmas' was developed with the support of the Irish Film Board and produced with the support of the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland and RTÉ.
