Julie Walters, Hugh Dancy and David Harewood have joined the voice cast for Terry Pratchett’s The Abominable Snow Baby, an animated special set to air on Channel 4 this Christmas.

The special, based on one of Pratchett’s short stories, is being produced by Eagle Eye Drama in association with Narrativia. Terry Pratchett’s The Abominable Snow Baby received a grant from the BFI’s Young Audiences Content Fund.

Caroline Hollick, Channel 4’s head of drama, commented, “Channel 4’s original Christmas animation has become a real highlight over the years and this year will be no exception. I’m delighted Julie Walters, Hugh Dancy and David Harewood will be bringing to life this wonderful, funny and moving yuletide tale. I know it’s only July, but with this amazing cast lineup, I can hardly wait….it’s definitely going to be a merry Terry Christmas.”
