Alice-Miranda is coming to the big screen in her first adventure 'Alice-Miranda Friends Forever'!
Australia’s favourite fictional heroine, Alice-Miranda is brought to life by Emmy and multi-award-winning company SLR Productions in Alice-Miranda Friends Forever.
Screening exclusively in 57 EVENT Cinemas and 17 Village Cinemas across Australia from 9 November 2019, Alice-Miranda Friends Forever is an 80-minute animated movie with a treasure trove of marvellous mysteries, midnight feasts, ponies and pyjama parties based on the bestselling book series by Australian author, Jacqueline Harvey.
In addition to the film season, there are a series of special events planned at EVENT Cinemas, including:
- An exclusive cinema premiere at EVENT Cinemas Bondi Junction (NSW) on Saturday 9 November;
- Alice-Miranda themed Morning Tea Special Event Screenings on Sunday 10 November at select cinemas in New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia;
- Author book signings by Jacqueline Harvey at key locations across New South Wales and Queensland from 10 November;
- Once-in-a-lifetime Pyjama Party at Skyline Drive-In Blacktown (NSW) with Jacqueline Harvey on 23 November.
Alice-Miranda is an extraordinary young girl, who at the age of nine and three quarters has organised her own early entry into boarding school along with her cheeky pony, Bonaparte. The Winchesterfield-Downsfordvale Girls Academy is a place of friendship and fun, but also of high drama, mystery and intrigue: there’s teachers and students in urgent need of help; a girl determined to be Alice-Miranda and her friends’ arch enemy; Fayle School for Boys under threat; a frightening principal who doesn’t want to be seen; and a scary witch in the woods.
The movie focuses on friendship, adventure, mystery, kindness, bravery and lots of ponies.
Timed to coincide with the theatrical release, Penguin Random House Australia will release Alice-Miranda 3 in 1 on 5 November 2019. Go back to where it all began with Alice-Miranda at School, Alice-Miranda on Holiday and Alice-Miranda Takes the Lead.
