We’re Going On a Bear Hunt is based on the children's book written by Michael Rosen and illustrated by Helen Oxenbury and is produced by the makers of the hugely-popular The Snowman and The Snowdog animation. The film features hand-drawn animation and follows the intrepid adventures of siblings Stan, Katie, Rosie, Max, the baby and Rufus the dog, who decide one day to go on an adventure in search of bears.

Olivia Colman, Pam Ferris and Mark Williams star - as Mum, Grandma and Dad respectively, with author Michael Rosen playing the Bear, plus a few other voice characters.

The one-off animated special will premiere on Channel 4 on Christmas Eve 2016 at 7:30pm.

We’re Going On a Bear Hunt is a Lupus Films Production in association with Bear Hunt Films, Walker Productions and Herrick Entertainment for Channel 4 Television Corporation.
