The much-anticipated, Queensland-made children’s animated feature film The Wishmas Tree is in cinemas today.
The Wishmas Tree was produced by Brisbane animation studio Like A Photon Creative financed with support from Screen Queensland and Screen Australia, distributed locally by Universal Content Group and internationally by Odin’s Eye Entertainment
Featuring a stellar voice cast including award winning Australian actress Miranda Tapsell (Top End Wedding, Sapphires, Love Child), international comedian Ross Noble (Freewheeling, Mindblender) and Brisbane’s Kate Murphy (Space Chickens in Space, Shopkins Wild), The Wishmas Tree is a fun original Aussie-mation that is set to become a family household name.
The film follows the story of a young possum’s misguided wish for a white Wishmas which not only freezes her entire hometown of Sanctuary City, but also threatens the lives of all who live there.
Before the magical Wishmas Tree dies, she must undertake a perilous journey into The Wild; battling self-doubt, ghostly predators and ultimately, Extinction itself, to reverse the damage she has caused and save her city!
The film introduces audiences to the wonderful world of The Tales of Sanctuary City franchise that incorporates three movies The Wishmas Tree and upcoming Combat Wombat and Daisy Quokka.
