HOGFATHER THE MOVIE!!!

Postby Gytha Fiona » August 25th, 2006, 4:29 pm

I've just returned from the 2006 Discworld Convention. It was a fabulous event but the icing on the cake was that the MOB film company who are making Hogfather, turned up with film clips for us all to see.

It is absolutely brilliant and a real treat. 700 convention goers all rose to their feet and the applause was deafening!

It will be shown on Sky 1 over Christmas and available to buy on dvd in the spring. Rumour has it that The Colour of Magic is going to be the next one.

This is the cast list:

Joss Ackland .... Mustrum Ridcully
Dominic Borrelli ......Grotto Hogfather
John Boswall .... The Chair of Indefinite Studies
Ed Coleman .... Ponder Stibbons
Craig Conway .... Chickenwire
David Decio .... Unseen University student wizard
Michelle Dockery .... Susan
John Franklyn-Robbins .... The Dean
Roger Frost .... Bursar
Peter Guinness .... Medium Dave
Gregor Henderson-Begg .... Pixie Helper
Geoffrey Hutchings .... Mr. Brown
David Jason .... Albert
Richard Katz .... Constable Visit

Stephen Marcus .... Banjo
Sinead Matthews .... Violet The Tooth Fairy
Maggie McCarthy .... Ma Lilywhite
Rhodri Meilir .... Bilious
Neil Pearson .... The Raven (voice)
Nigel Planer .... Mr. Sydeney

Tim Plester .... The Tooth Guard
Robert Portal .... Mr. Gaiter
Terry Pratchett .... The Toy Maker
Ian Richardson .... Death (voice)
Tony Robinson .... Vernon Crumley
Shend .... The Hogfather
Nicholas Tennant .... Corporal Nobbs

Marnix Van Den Broeke .... Death
David Warner .... Lord Downey
Marc Warren .... TeaTime
Arthur White .... Ernie The Cart Driver
Kevin Wickenden
Deborah Winckles .... Mrs. Gaiter

I got a tooth at Wadfest :-D

Don't know what to do with it though... at the moment it lives on my desk next to a collection of other funny stuff.

And the tooth chains are really cool!

Sensational! I like the way there's a handful of big names, but loads of unheard-of actors. If it's successful, it will start of a load of new careers.

The Colour of magic and The Light Fantastic are apparently going to be made into a film as well. :D
