Let’s Get EPIC! A new trailer has arrived for Playmobil: The Movie, a new animated feature set for cinemas during the summer holidays. Prepare yourselves parents as I predict that this will be one of the movies to take the kids to during the big break.

The film is, of course, based on the popular Playmobil toy range that has been a firm favourite with children (and adults) since it first landed in toy shops back in the 1970s. The feature comes to the screen courtesy of STUDIOCANAL and ON Animation Studios.
