Horrid Henry Heads to the Big Screen


A new special compilation of episodes of Novel Entertainment’s animated series Horrid Henry will screen in cinemas across the UK and Ireland from August 23, following a deal secured with Vue Entertainment.

Tickets are now on sale for the special (64 minutes), which is directed by Hilary Audus and Dave Unwin and produced by Novel Entertainment’s Lucinda Whiteley and Mike Watts.


The special compilation will feature favorite episodes, brand new music videos, and more. Horrid Henry and the Big Screen sees Henry setting off on a vile vacation (will he ever get rid of old bogey brain next door?), becoming King Henry the Horrible and liking it too much, getting a new TV, becoming a grown-up (but not for long), and trying to go to school. New videos and songs include “My Song,” “Born To Be Rude,” “Wanna Be Me,” and “Too Cool For School.”


This is the latest incarnation of Novel’s four-time BAFTA-nominated Horrid Henry. The fifth season is currently on air in the UK and the brand has expanded to include film, stage, radio and online extensions, as well as a licensing and merchandising program.

A total of 250 episodes are now available with recent sales including MBC (Middle East), Alati International (Russia), and Atlantic Digital Networks (Canada). Renewals include Turner Broadcasting System (Asia), Mediacorp (Singapore), POP TV (Slovenia), E-Vision (Middle East), Asiana (Korea) and Netflix (France, US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand). Other leading broadcasters on board include ABC Australia, RTE Eire, Mediacorp Singapore, Gulli France, NRK Norway, Hulu US, SVT Sweden, YLE Finland, RTP Portugal, TVP1 in Poland, and Al Jazeerah Middle East.
