The Gruffalo's Child
The Christmas special was Uwe's second collaboration with director Johannes Weiland at Studio Soi. The character design is based on Axel Scheffler's illustrations from the book " The Gruffalo's Child" by Julia Donaldson. Some of the CG characters are a reuse from the film "The Gruffalo", directed by Jakob Schuh and Max Lang. The BAFTA nominated short premiered on BBC One to an audience of over 10 million viewers.
