The new Blinky Bill trailer has arrived and it’s kinda cute and very funny.
Blinky Bill is a koala with a big imagination. An adventurer at heart, he dreams of leaving the little town of Green Patch and following in his explorer father’s footsteps. Mr. Bill went missing in the Outback sometime ago and Blinky is the only one who believes his father is still alive. When Blinky discovers a mysterious marker that hints at his Dad’s whereabouts, he embarks on a journey that takes him beyond the boundary of Green Patch and into the wild and dangerous Outback. He quickly makes friends with Nutsy, a zoo koala, and Jacko, a nervous frill-necked lizard. Pursued relentlessly by a vengeful feral Cat who has a personal score to settle with Blinky, the trio must learn to work together if they ever want to survive the rugged Australian landscape and find Blinky’s father!
The cast of BLINKY BILL THE MOVIE is led by Ryan Kwanten (HBO’s “True Blood”) as the voice of Blinky Bill, Rufus Sewell (A KNIGHTS TALE) as the treacherous feral cat Sir Claude and Robin McLeavy (TV’s “Hell On Wheels”) as Blinky’s best friend Nutsy. Starring alongside them is Toni Colette (LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE) as two charming yet gossipy emus called Sheryl and Beryl, David Wenham (THE LORD OF THE RINGS: RETURN OF THE KING) as the manic but loveable frill-necked lizard Jacko and Deborah Mailman (THE SAPPHIRES) as Blinky’s kind and courageous Mum. Rounding out this esteemed ensemble are Richard Roxburgh (MOULIN ROUGE) as Blinky’s adventure-loving father, Barry Otto (THE GREAT GATSBY) as the tyrannical Mayor Cranklepot and Barry Humphries (DAME EDNA EVERAGE) as the wildly eccentric Wombo.
The film will be releasing in cinemas 17th September (NSW/QLD/VIC) and 24th September (ACT/NT/SA/WA).
