Full-Length UK Trailer For Aardman Animation’s ‘The Pirates! Band of Misfits’

Written by on October 25, 2011 

When it comes to animation, anything from the Aardman group (who gave us Chicken Run and the Wallace & Gromit movies) is a breath of fresh air. With their strict attention to detail and off-the-wall humor, their products are a step above most generic family fare. Their latest is The Pirates! Band of Misfits and after two teasers, this first full-length trailer shows off more plot and clever jokes. It certainly looks like a blast. Check it out below via Empire for the film featuring the voices of Hugh Grant, David Tennant, Imelda Staunton, Martin Freeman and Jeremy Piven.


In The Pirates! Band of Misfits, Hugh Grant stars in his first animated role as the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain – a boundlessly enthusiastic, if somewhat less-than-successful, terror of the High Seas. With a rag-tag crew at his side (Martin Freeman, Brendan Gleeson, Russell Tovey, and Ashley Jensen), and seemingly blind to the impossible odds stacked against him, the Captain has one dream: to beat his bitter rivals Black Bellamy (Jeremy Piven) and Cutlass Liz (Salma Hayek) to the much coveted Pirate Of The Year Award. It’s a quest that takes our heroes from the shores of exotic Blood Island to the foggy streets of Victorian London. Along the way they battle a diabolical queen (Imelda Staunton) and team up with a haplessly smitten young scientist (David Tennant), but never lose sight of what a pirate loves best: adventure!

The Pirates! Band of Misfits hits theaters March 30th, 2012.
