Trailer for Kids Film ROBIN AND THE HOODS

A new trailer has been released by Sky Original Films for the kid adventure film Robin and the Hoods. The movie follows a modern-day girl named Robin, the leader of a neighborhood group of kids who call themselves “the hoods.”

They play in the forest next to their housing tract and use their imaginations to take them on adventures. When they find themselves up against housing developers that want to turn their beloved forest into more developments, they have to figure out how to best defend themselves.

The film stars Darcey Ewart as Robin, with Naomie Harris, Gwendoline Christie, Mark Williams, Bruno Edgington-Gibson, Gloria Ishikawa, Dexter Sol Ansell, Eddison Burch, Tom Goodman-Hill, and Christine Bottomley. Phil Hawkins (The Last Showing, Four Warriors, Prancer: A Christmas Tale) directs from a script written by Stuart Benson & Paul Davidson​.

The full synopsis reads:

For the tenacious 11-year-old Robin (Darcey Ewart) and her loyal band of friends ‘The Hoods’, the patch of overgrown scrubland at the end of their cul-de-sac is a magical kingdom. Sticks and bin lids have become swords and shields, drones have become majestic eagles and the hippy lady in the forest (Christie) is a terrifying witch. The only thing limiting their colourful imagination is the prospect of losing their kingdom forever. When the slippery property developer Clipboard (Harris) turns up and dazzles the parents of the area with promises of health spas and day-care facilities, Robin and The Hoods’ world is faced with an existential threat. Despite all their best efforts, their protests fall on deaf ears. When their parents can’t see the wood for the trees, Robin and her friends take matters into their own hands to defend their kingdom.

We’ve seen this formula many times in kids movies, most famously in The Goonies. But it’s successful because it’s fun, and kids like a story in which they’re the underdogs who get to fight and come out on top. This looks cute, and like a movie my kids would love.

Check out the trailer below, and watch Robin and the Hoods on Sky Cinema later this summer.
