This weekend we invite you to the cinemas! Together with Ro Image, we are releasing the animated comedy for the whole family The Amazing Maurice.
Maurice, a streetwise cat, has the perfect money-making scam. He’s found a stupid-looking kid who plays a pipe, and his very own plague of rats – rats who, strangely, are educated and literate, so Maurice can no longer think of them as “lunch”. And everyone knows the stories about rats and pipers...
However, when Maurice and the rodents reach the stricken town of Bad Blintz, their little con goes down the drain. For someone there is playing a different tune. A dark, shadowy tune. Something very, very bad is waiting in the cellars.
But Maurice wouldn’t be Maurice if he and his friends didn’t manage to save the day in the end!
The Amazing Maurice is the adaptation of the novel of the same name by Terry Pratchett.
Terry Pratchett was an English author of fantasy novels, especially, comical works. He is best known for his Discworld series of 41 novels. Pratchett, with more than 100 million books sold worldwide in 37 languages, was the UK’s bestselling author of the 1990s.
In 2011 he won the annual Carnegie Medal for The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents, the first Discworld book for children. Pratchett died on 12 March 2015 aged 66.
“What a great honour to have the opportunity to film a Terry Pratchett book. After reading The Amazing Maurice, I am even more thrilled to bring this fantastic novel to the big screen” said Director Toby Genkel.
For the Romanian version, the voices belong to the actors: Mircea Băluță (Maurice), Oana Laura Gabriela (Malicia), Justinian Năstasă (Keith), Mike Gheorghiu (Dangerous Beans), Virgil Aioanei (Darktan), Nicu Enescu (Boss Man-Death) şi Silvia Gâscă (Peaches).
The Amazing Maurice can be seen from February 3 only in cinemas.
