For the love of dogs

This animation will attract and delight both young and old and is the perfect excuse to get out of the house.

The Queen's Corgi is a Belgian animated feature film directed by Ben Stassen and Vincent Kesteloot, with writers John Smith and Rob Sprackling. It is based on Queen Elizabeth II and her corgis' friendship.

According to Vanity Fair, the movie may be slightly exaggerated, but probably no one in the history of humankind has loved corgis more than Queen Elizabeth II.

The British monarch is obsessed with the breed, so much so that they've become entwined with her legacy—including in her official portraits, sculpted in her official statues and embossed on commemorative coins.

When Elizabeth was 18, she got her first corgi, which she sensibly named Susan. Thereafter she became more creative, giving the pups names like Monty, Willow, Foxy, Bushy, Vulcan, Candy, Whisky, and Bisto Oxo.

The film revolves around Rex (Jack Whitehall), the Queen's newest corgi pup, who runs around the palace (and, it seems, poops everywhere) drawing attention away from the elder corgi crew. After getting lost from the palace, Rex runs into a dog fight club with all sorts confronting each other. He then goes on a long journey to find his mistress again.

The cast includes Julie Walters (Queen Elizabeth), Sheridan Smith (Wanda), Ray Winstone (Tyson), Matt Lucas as Charlie, and Tom Courtenay as the Duke of Edinburgh.

If you are wondering how to keep your children entertained, this film comes at the right time. WE give it 3.5 out of 5.
