If you were a child any time since the bloody 1950s… you’re going to want to see this!
There have been many famous TV bears to get a movie - Winnie the Pooh, Yogi, and Paddington all have feature films to their name. Now, finally after 7 decades, Sooty is getting his own movie!
Remember Sooty? The cheeky whispering bear who would do magic and carry his iconic water pistol?
WELL, HE IS BACK!
We're not even sure if he ever left tbh, but along with original bear owner Matthew Corbett, puppet friends Sweep and Soo, and of course Richard, the gang is coming back together.
The official release date is yet to be confirmed, but it's expected to hit cinemas this year!
On the plot, Richard has revealed -
“Soo has been kidnapped by an evil showbiz impresario who will pull every trick in the book to turn her into a global superstar and Sooty and Sweep need her back.
The film will be peppered with spectacular locations, countless celebrity cameos and buckets of slapstick – without detracting from the charm of the nation’s favourite teddy bear, Sooty and his dim-witted best friend Sweep.”
