Be the very first to see this brand new animated adventure on screen, based on the much-loved book by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, and brought to brilliant animated life by Magic Light Pictures and Blue Zoo.

Superworm is super-long and super-strong with amazing skills and a big heart—whether he's saving baby toad from an accident, rescuing beetle from falling down a well, or even good-naturedly offering himself up as a skipping rope for some bored bees.

Superworm and his best friend Butterfly make a terrific team. But what happens when Superworm gets too full of himself and starts to ignore his friends? When the wicked Wizard Lizard sends his servant Crow on a worm-napping mission, Butterfly must come to the rescue, convincing the other creatures to help her with a daring plan.

Featuring the magnificent voice talent of Oscar-winner Olivia Colman as narrator, Emmy nominee Matt Smith as Superworm, Patricia Allison as Butterfly, Kobna Holdbrook-Smith as Wizard Lizard, and Rob Brydon as the Crow.
