The Highway Rat & Zog

Reel Talk by JBFC Kids Curator Emily Ohara

From the creators of The Gruffalo and Revolting Rhymes come festival favorites The Highway Rat and Zog, two animated shorts based on the much-loved children’s books by Julia Donaldson and illustrator Axel Scheffler. The clever rhyming, mesmerizing CGI, and stories with meaningful messages will delight all ages.

The Highway Rat tells a tale of a ravenous rat who steals to satisfy his craving for cupcakes, candy, and everything sweet.

Jeroen Jaspaert. 2017. 25 m. NR. UK. English. Magic Light Pictures.

In Zog, an eager but accident-prone young dragon tries his very best to learn how to fly, roar, and breathe fire at Dragon School.

Max Lang/Daniel Snaddon. 2018. 27 m. NR. UK. English. Magic Light Pictures.

Recommended age: 3+

Content Advisory: contains scenes where rat is in a dark cave and a fire breathing dragon.
