Superworm, narrated by Olivia Colman

After last year’s success with Zog and the Flying Doctors (featuring Daniel Ings), Oscar-winner Olivia Colman will narrate the next Christmas BBC animation special “Superworm.”

The show follows Superworm, who is a hero always on hand to help out all the other animals and insects, whose latest challenge is to fight the wicked Wizard Lizard and his servant Crow.

Based on the book “Superworm,” written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, the half-hour show will air over Christmas on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
