Product Description

This much-loved tale has resonated deeply with over five generations of children, enchanted by its power and sense of fun. In this fantastical new version by prize-winning director Suzie Templeton, specially made to be screened theatrically in concert halls worldwide accompanied by live orchestras as well as to be seen internationally both on TV and DVD, is set to delight a whole new audience.

Synopsis

This innovative animated film version of Prokofiev's classic work, set to a new recording by the world-renowned Philharmonia Orchestra, was produced at the Oscar-winning Se-ma-for Studios in Poland using stop-frame model animation (the technique popularised by Wallace and Gromit creators Aardman Animations) and state-of-the-art digital technology.

The Live Show:
Oscar-winning Peter & the Wolf Live on Stage runs from Dec 28th to 30th at the Royal Festival Hall, London. The perfect show to introduce children to the orchestra this festive season. Contact the Royal Festival Hall for tickets on 0844 875 0073. Tickets start from as little as £12, and 50% off for Children under 16. --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

I'm not sure the U rating is deserved here! I showed this to a class of 10 year olds & they were horrified when the duck was eaten! Then Peter goes on a revenge hunting mission against the wolf!
Quite a dark version of the story, think twice before using with very young children.

This version of Peter and the Wolf is the best animation I have ever seen. The attention to detail is extraordinary, there is much humour and also plenty of the harshness of life, in fact it gives a superbly balanced vision to younger viewers, I think. The duck - based on the Indian runner duck?! - is particularly lovable - there is an acute sense of sadness when he gets eaten when he is so affectionate and has provided such entertainment on the ice with all his slipping and sliding around in an attempt to stay on his feet. In this last regard it seems much funnier than Disney's take on animals losing their balance ... but all the animals are vividly characterized by the action and the models match this inspiration. The appearance of the wolf is mesmerising, his way of moving so sleek and suggestive of contained power. The poor injured bird looks very much the worse for wear, a lot like a modern pigeon (although he looks more like a crow). There is an amazing moment when he flies with the aid of a balloon and is so happy to be back in his natural element as he slowly floats down. I also like the way Peter, who has shown such bravery throughout and such depth of feeling for the duck, finally releases the wolf because he realises it was only acting in accordance with its nature. The visual style and beauty of the film leads up to this final gesture and makes us feel the rightness of it. This respect for nature, and awe before it, makes it a very good film for children to see, as well as providing them with a wonderfully enjoyable visual experience.

As a child i loved Peter and the wolf and my imagination of the characters were magical, however having watched this DVD with my 7yr old children they were scared and totally put off as its very dark and haunting. Such a shame for their minds now to be filled with dark and sad images of this amazing music- awful film not suitable for young children.

Bought this to watch with my 2 granddaughters (5 and 3). Thought it might be a bit dark for the3 year old but they both loved it and want me to play it every time they visit. Not too long either so they don't get bored. Well worth the money.

Brilliant film which our 5 and 3 year olds adore (as do I). It has really helped them get into classical music too.

We went to see the world premiere of this film at the Royal Albert Hall this autumn. It is totally stunning - very bleak and dark, and evocative of the Soviet era, but at the same time highly original and very funny in places. Our four year old loved it, but generally I would say that this version (which took years to make) is more aimed at adults and older children. Buy it for Christmas - you will love it.
