Gnomeo & Juliet the fresh and funny makeover of one of the world’s most timeless stories is 
perfect for the whole family.  Featuring music from Sir Elton John, the voice talents of Emily Blunt, 
James McAvoy and Sir Michael Caine the film tells the story of star-crossed lovers from two 
feuding clans of Garden Gnomes who, among other feats, race lawnmowers!!  From a director of 
Shrek 2, it’s audiences’ chance to step into the secret world of garden gnomes. 

Complete with hilarious never-before-seen bonus features, Gnomeo & Juliet is an out-of-the- 
ordinary animated comedy the entire family will love — we just gnome it!
