Animated Sundance Sleeper ‘The Amazing Maurice’

Updated: May 10, 2023

The computer-animated film The Amazing Maurice is a fantasy comedy film released on the 16th of December last year by Sky Cinema in the United Kingdom. And its release in the United States is set this February 2023 by Viva Pictures. The film is based on a relatively old novel The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents from 2001 by Terry Pratchetnt(known for his other adapted works like Hogfather, Troll Bridge, and many more). The movie is written by Terry Rosio( known for writing Shrek, Pirates of the Caribbean, Aladdin, etc.), and it is produced by Emely Christians, Robert Chandler, and Andrew Baker. And for the on-screen cast for the movie, the voices were featuring Emilia Clarke, Hugh Laurie, David Thewlish, Himesh Patel, and Gemma Arterton.

The movie is definitely a big one for an independently produced computer-animated film. The streaming platform of Byron Allen which is HCBU GO was partnering with the producers to further promote the message of the film for the entire month.


The story is about a talking street ginger cat who leads a bunch of talking rats called Educated Rodents as they come up with a money-making scam by going from town to town by being a plague so that one of their accomplices, boy piper, will “lure” them out of town and shares the money they make afterward. However, when they meet a bookworm called Malicia, the schemes they are doing are eventually going to end.

With its recent release in some places and its released trailer, you can definitely enjoy this as an individual watcher or better with accomplices like your friends or family because of its family-friendly animated format. Moreover, with its upcoming release in the United States this February, you can watch the trailer here (4) THE AMAZING MAURICE - Official Trailer | Hugh Laurie, Emilia Clarke, Himesh Patel - YouTube.
