The Tale of Despereaux (2008)
Release Date: 19 December 2008
In the fairy-tale kingdom of Dor, darkness descends after an accident with the king's favourite food - piping hot soup. Consumed by grief, the morose monarch banishes all of the mice. One tiny creature, Despereaux Tilling, dares to defy the ban by striking up a friendship with the princess, Pea, who is consigned to the castle under her father's orders. When a rat called Roscuro plots to kidnap Pea, the king finds a most unlikely, potential saviour: Despereaux, the one creature small and brave enough to stop the rat before he goes too far.
