Magic Light Pictures gives first look at The Smeds and the Smoos

Magic Light Pictures has released a first look image of its hotly tipped festive animation for BBC One, The Smeds and the Smoos.

In the animated intergalactic adventure, the red Smeds and the blue Smoos must learn to overcome their differences and work together to find young Janet and Bill – who eloped to escape their families’ long standing rivalries.

The cast stars Adjoa Andoh as Grandmother Smoo, Bill Bailey as Grandfather Smed, Rob Brydon as Uncle Smoo, Daniel Ezra as Bill, Sally Hawkins as Narrator, Ashna Rabheru as Janet and Meera Syal as Aunt Smed.

On a far-off planet, two families always avoid each other. The red Smeds never mix with the Smoos, who are blue, so when a chance encounter allows young Smed Janet to become friends with Bill, a young Smoo, their families immediately try to stop it.

But as Janet and Bill’s friendship grows into something more serious, the two clans must find a way to get along to avoid losing them for ever.

The Smeds and the Smoos will air on BBC One this Christmas.
