With Cariad Lloyd as the teacher

Rob Brydon and Cariad Lloyd have been cast in BBC One’s Christmas animated special The Snail And The Whale.

Brydon will play the Whale opposite Sally Hawkins as the snail in the adaptation of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s 2003 picture book.

Lloyd will play the teacher, with Dame Diana Rigg as the narrator.

Brydon has featured in all of the animated versions of Donaldson and Scheffler’s work created by production house Magic Light, also including The Gruffalo, The Highway Rat and Stick Man.

He said: ’It’s always so wonderful to work with Magic Light on these animated specials for Christmas. The Snail and the Whale is a longstanding favourite in our house. 

‘It’s an epic journey across the globe, where the tiniest creature and the mightiest mammal experiences the vastness of our planet together.’
