Many years ago, in the days before he became a household name in the Harry Potter series of films, a young red haired child called Rupert Grint starred in a film called Thunderpants.
Why did I mention this in the start of this post? Well, it’s quite simple. It seems that the thriller writer, Jo Nesbø has produced a series of books that involves farts and flying…
It is meant to be reminiscent of Roald Dahl. However, after watching the trailer a different author jumped into my mind a lot more. The great Dr Seuss. I think it’s the way that the trailer has been done. the rhymes are very much more Cat In The Hat than Matilda.
Not only do we get the trailer, but the first set of images
The story follows the brilliantly funny and wonderfully weird Doctor Proctor, who has finally created something to help him fulfil his dream of becoming a famous inventor – a super-strength fart powder that can propel people into outer space! And with the help of his new neighbour Nilly, and Nilly’s friend Lisa, Doctor Proctor’s Fart Powder is ready to go worldwide! But ruthless twins Truls and Trym are determined to get hold of the powder for themselves. Their plot to spoil the Doctor’s plans sparks a fart-filled adventure involving a firework extravaganza, a trip to prison and an escaped anaconda.
