The new movie brings an exciting cinematic feel to the popular Channel 5: Milkshake and Cartoonito TV show. With an action-packed plotline featuring twists and turns, Scoop, Muck and Lofty are eager to help Bob with his biggest build yet, constructing a dam and transforming an old quarry into a reservoir to provide Spring City with fresh water.
Bob has also enlisted the help of another builder, Conrad, to help clear the quarry, along with his three enormous Mega Machines, Thud, Crunch and former TV star Ace. However, it soon becomes clear that Conrad, secretly resentful that he lost out on the dam-building contract to Bob, is plotting to undermine his rival’s reputation and sabotages the dam. Soon Bob realises that things are not as they should be and that it’s up to him and his team to save Spring City!
The exciting new release combines entertainment with real and practical learning values, together with lessons in social and emotional development from its lovable characters, with an emphasis on friendship. The STEM curriculum has been built into the plotline, seamlessly underpinning the action, whilst Bob and the crew demonstrate the power of positive-thinking, problem-solving, teamwork and follow-through.
The movie includes regulars Lee Ingleby (Line of Duty, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Inspector George Gently), who voices Bob, Joanne Froggatt (Downton Abbey) as the voice of Wendy, and Blake Harrison (The Inbetweeners) who voices Scoop. Also joining the voice cast on this movieis acting legend Brian Cox (The Bourne Identity, Braveheart, Rise of the Planet of the Apes).
Conrad, actor Brian Cox says: "Both generations of my kids watched Bob the Builder because he’s been around for a very long time. I think the thing about Bob is it’s a very simple concept and it’s not too complicated for children. They link on to it because of the machines, because of all of the accoutrement that goes with Bob. It’s his simplicity that’s really at the heart of it and that’s what makes it last, and has made it last through generation to generation. The history of animation is all about the history of developing images; images that become much more CGI and less cartoony and less drawn. I think Bob is part of that heritage and part of that whole development."
