Here is the movie trailer of the upcoming British stop-motion animated movie STRIKE, produced by Gigglefish Studios. As we can see in the trailer, the film has a heartwarming story filled with fun and adventure for kids. STRIKE is set for a May 11 release.
STRIKE follows a young mole Mungo Morrison who comes from a family of miners, but he dreams of becoming a soccer player (footballer). As he is about to start working alongside his father in their hometown’s legendary gold mine, he either has to gain the courage to tell his father about his dream or resign himself to life as a miner.
The film is about Mungo’s struggle as he faces new challenges in the course of achieving his impossible dream and saving his family and community from a gold-obsessed supervillain.

Let’s check out what Gigglefish Studios tells about the storyline and a little more detailed information:
Mungo Morrison is a young mole who is due to begin work at his proud father’s side in their hometown’s legendary gold mine. While his best friends are excited to be in the mine, Mungo secretly dreams of becoming a professional footballer. However, desperate not to upset his father, as well as being a small mole and unable to play football in bright light, Mungo sadly resigns himself to life as a miner. When the mine is forced to shut down after a mysterious accident, an evil and gold-obsessed supervillain known only as ‘The Boss’, attempts to bully the townsfolk into selling him the mine. Against all odds and with a little help from his crazy friends, Mungo begins an epic adventure of thrills, laughs, action, and danger, as he hurtles towards the Wild Cup football finals in Russia and a final, breathtaking showdown with ‘The Boss.’

From the storyline, we could imagine that this film could be an entertaining one for kids, and at the same time – it can teach kids about the importance of self-confidence, family values, kindness, friendship, and the key to following our dreams. We’re expecting that with Mungo, director Trevor Hardy renders the message beautifully.
