Four Kids and It moves forward a week for Sky Cinema launch date

Four Kids and It

Story by Jack Foley

SKY has announced their forthcoming original title Four Kids And It will be available to audiences on Sky Cinema on April 3, 2020 – a week earlier than previously announced.

Due to the recent closure of cinemas the film will no longer receive a simultaneous theatrical release as originally planned, but families are still able to enjoy it in the comfort of their homes.

Set on the beautiful Cornish coast, Four Kids And It is a fun-filled family adventure based on Jacqueline Wilson’s hugely popular children’s book, Four Children and It, in which four kids embark on the ultimate journey to discover if a magical creature can really make all their wishes come true.

New couple Alice (Paula Patton) and David (Matthew Goode) take their less than enthusiastic children on a family holiday to a Cornish cottage to meet each other for the first time. The holiday takes an unexpected turn when, on the local beach, the kids discover a magical and very grumpy Psammead (Michael Caine), a creature with the power to grant magical wishes.

Unfortunately, they also run into local aristocratic oddball Tristan (Russell Brand), who wants to capture the Psammead for his own gain. The ensuing adventure brings the new siblings together and helps them to accept their parents’ newfound happiness.

Directed by Andy De Emmony, Four Kids And It is produced by Julie Baines of Dan Films and Anne Brogan of Kindle Entertainment and co-produced by Jonathan Taylor and Paul Donovan.
