The Magic Roundabout Movie

Well, I couldn't resist mentioning this one here.

They are making a Magic Roundabout movie for release in 2005. The synopsis is rather weird and not at all how I remember the kids show but hell that's what happens when you have a show with so many drug references in it!

The quick plot outline is thus...

"A group of friends embark on a dangerous journey in an effort to imprison their oppressor -- the evil wizard ZeeBaDee."

They have a great line up for the voices too:
ZeeBaDee - Tom Baker
Brian - Jim Broadbent
Ermintrude - Joanna Lumley (yay!)
Florence - Kylie Minogue (double yay!)
Dylan - Bill Nighy (I think I bumped into Mr Nighy yesterday at the bank. He overheard me talking about Vegas and struck up a brief conversation. It may have just been a lookalike though. Must find a picture of him and his missus/partner to check)
Zebedee - Richard O'Brien (triple yay! but confused about seemingly multiple bouncy folk?)
Dougal - Robbie Williams (I am so loving this cast line!)
Soldier Sam - Ray Winstone (quad yay!)

So, can you tell why I'm excited?

It won't be the same unless it's also written by someone on drugs though!

Groooooovy
You know I never thought much of the Magic Roundabout (it seemed too trippy for me even when I was young) - but now that this crew are making it - there's no way I'm going to miss that movie - it sounds hilarious!

THe rest of the voice actors I can live with. But Robbie just isn't gonna be right for Dougal. No way no how. I'm not too sure how I feel about a Magic Roundabout movie anyhow. (yes I did grow up watching this sporadically as a kid)
