The Borrowers  
The Borrowers will be on BBC One at 7:30pm on December 26, so you guys in England (and Europeans with satellite ;-p) are in for a treat on Boxing Day!
The DVD is also due to be released on January 9, you can preorder at Amazon.co.uk.
No news about a US release at the moment... or perhaps I missed it, oops. ^^;

A little recap post of articles and things about the Borrowers!

As well as some excerpts!

The official trailer

and a Chris-intensive excerpt:

This looks really wonderful and I can't wait to see it!

Merry Christmas and a wonderful Boxing Day to all! :D

Thanks for the heads up. I just pre-ordered mine. I really wish the prior rumours about ABC showing this had been true.

Thank you for the links!

I have read that the US showing will be Thanksgiving 2012. It turns out Disney is showing Studio Ghibli's The Secret World of Arrietty in Feb 2012. Since Disney owns ABC, they didn't want dueling Borrowers and so moved the BBC version to Nov 2012.

Too bad for me:(

Thanks for this. I thought it was very sweet the way he describes how he felt using the green screens. Like being a child again and I laughed at the interview here he said he kept doing the stunt where he had to throw himself on a crash mat because it was so much fun. Nice to see he still cherishes his inner child.
