As you probably guessed this is the story of Romeo & Juliet but set in gnome land. I felt this was appropiate to talk about this film because of the anniversary of the bards death. But this film has a light twist at the ending!

I have to say that Romeo & Juliet is not my favourite Shakespeare I think because of the tradegy element it is strange because I love drama films and tv shows. However, this is a mix of modern and traditional interpretation which is because it is done by Rocket Pictures.

So Rocket Pictures is run by Elton John and his husband David Furnish so straight away you know the music is gonna be amazing. I mean I have been listening to Elton since I was kid to Crocodile Rock my favourite. Not only that but the collaboration of people on board this project is phenomenal which he speaks of in the featurette. I honestly can’t wait to see what else they have done!

The casting is unbelieveable not only on their own but as couple acting because in Romeo & Juliet there is little duets of characters that banter off each other which is why the story is so successful. So you have Maggie Smith and Michael Caine, Emily Blunt and James MacAvoy and Julie Walters and Richard Wilson. They really bring it to life. Also some of the gnomes  in the animation look like the actors which makes it even funnier!

Overall, I absolutely loved the film the best adaptation of Romeo & Juliet ever. I cannot leave without mentioning the funniest frog in history Ashley Jensen such a comedy gold. Of course Patrick Stewart as Shakespeare very poignant and I bet he loved that role. The music as usual Elton John just wowed me such funny songs but then emotional songs that brought the film to life. A brilliant family film everyone should watch it!
