Friends! Romans! Countrymen! HORRIBLE HISTORIES IS NOW A FREAKING MOVIE. That’s right, the TV show you watched as a kid and created ear worms like Charles II: King Of Bling and that ARF Pilot song (Take that, Hitler! LOL) is now a bona fide movie, and we are obsessed. Complete with new songs, hilarious characters and cameos from some of your favourite actors like Nick Frost, Craig Roberts, Rupert Graves, Lee Mack and Kim Cattrall.
Who are the Celts? What have the Romans done for us? And why is Emperor Nero dousing himself in horse wee wee? The all-conquering Romans rule the civilised world. While the young Emperor Nero must battle his scheming mother, Celt queen Boudicca gathers an army in Britain to repel the rotten Romans. Mixed up in this battle for liberation are teenage Atti, a reluctant Roman soldier, and Orla, a young Celt with dreams of becoming a warrior. Will they fall on opposite sides or forge a friendship in the chaos of Celtic-inspired rebellion?
We are pretty excited that you can share the new movie with the little people in your life, and trick them into learning things! Adult win! We also have activity sheets to keep the good times going.
