Piney: The Lonesome Pine DVD Giveaway

Emmy-Nominated Children’s Holiday Film Piney: The Lonesome Pine now on Digital and DVD!

The holiday animation film features a cheerful and optimistic five-year old Welsh girl named Georgie who gets to grow her very own pine tree, Piney, on her Grandpa Sid’s Christmas tree farm. Four years later, the day finally arrives for Piney to become what he was planted to be. He’s ready to be dressed up in baubles and bows and have bright shining lights from his head to his toes. Excited to take Piney into her home, Georgie discovers that Piney has accidentally been removed from the farm with a shipment of other trees.

Georgie’s best friend, Jackster the dog, leads Piney on a journey across the countryside to try to get back home before Christmas Eve, while Georgie and Grandpa Sid frantically search for them. Prepare to be taken on Piney’s unexpected journey, witnessing his hopes and dreams, fears and disappointments. Upon reaching his final destination, it turns out to be more than he could have ever dreamed.

This children’s movie stars Sir Johnathan Pryce (Tomorrow Never Dies, The Two Popes, The Wife) who received a 2021 Daytime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program, Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, The World’s End, Hot Fuzz), Jason Anthony (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Star Trek: Discovery), Lesley Nicol (Downton Abbey, East is East), and Parminder Nagra (The Blacklist, ER, Bend it Like Beckham).

The DVD comes with bonus features including the Official Trailer, The Making of Piney: The Lonesome Pine, Behind-the-Scenes at Abbey Road Studios, and Behind-the-Scenes with the Cast and Crew.

I really loved the animation in this movie, it’s quite beautiful. In the span of about 25 minutes, Piney: The Lonesome Pine tells a lovely story of self-acceptance. This is a great little movie with a huge message that little ones will love watching. It is bound to become a family favorite year in and year out.
