School Holiday Movies for Kids: Zog / Snail and the Whale

15 July 2020

We welcome you back to the gallery for week two of the school holidays with two long short films.


UK, Max Lang & Daniel Snaddon; 2018, 27 min. G

Zog is a young, keen, but accident-prone dragon. At school he keeps getting into mischief when learning how to fly, roar and breathe fire. Each year he is helped by a kind young girl who patches up his bumps and bruises, but can she help him with his trickiest challenge yet: It's Year Four, and he has to capture a princess! Starring Sir Lenny Henry, Hugh Skinner, Tracey Ullman, Patsy Ferran and Kit Harington.

The Snail and The Whale

UK, Max Lang & Daniel Snaddon; 2019, 27 min. G

A snail longs to see the world and hitches a lift on a whale's tail. Together they go on an amazing journey, past icebergs and volcanoes, sharks and penguins, and the snail feels very small in the vastness of the world. But when the whale is beached in a bay, it's the tiny snail who saves the day. Starring Rob Brydon, Sally Hawkins, Dame Diana Rigg and Cariad Lloyd.
