The promo is being accompanied by a social media campaign aimed at reaching three million consumers and includes product giveaways. Specially marked packs will be available at Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Waitrose and Coop.

The Lupus Films and Walker Productions’ animated feature is based on the classic children’s book by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury. The 25-minute film premiered on UK-based Channel 4 over the 2016 holiday season, garnering more than eight million viewers. Since then Amazon Prime Video has picked up the exclusive streaming rights and a number of international broadcasters, including France’s Canal+ and ABC Australia have licensed it.
