Three Egyptian Mummies search present day London in search of a ring belonging to their Royal Family, after it’s stolen by the ambitious archeologist Lord Carnaby.
Warner Bros. Pictures’ animated adventure feature film Mummies, from Spanish director Juan Jesús García Galocha, features an impressive voice cast including Joe Thomas (The Inbetweeners, White Gold), Eleanor Tomlinson (The Nevers, Jack the Giant Slayer, The Illusionist), Santiago Winder (The Hope Rooms), Celia Imrie (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again), Dan Starkey (Doctor Who), Hugh Bonneville (Paddington, Downton Abbey, Notting Hill), singer, songwriter and record producer Shakka and Sean Bean (Game of Thrones, The Martian, The Lord of the Rings).
The film follows the fun adventures of three Egyptian mummies who live in an underground secret city, hidden in ancient Egypt. The trio includes a princess, a former charioteer, and his younger brother along with their pet baby crocodile. Through a series of unfortunate events, the mummies end up in present-day London and embark on a wacky and hilarious journey in search of an old ring belonging to the Royal Family, that was stolen by the ambitious archaeologist Lord Carnaby.
The film is directed by Juan Jesús García Galocha (“Galo”), who makes his feature film debut following his work as art director on films such as Tad: The Lost Explorer and Tad, the Lost Explorer, and the Secret of King Midas. The script was co-written by Jordi Gasull and Javier Barreira, Goya Award winners for Best Screenplay for Tad: The Lost Explorer.
The film’s music is composed by Goya Award winner Fernando Velazquez, who has frequently collaborated with acclaimed Spanish director, J.A. Bayona. The film features three original songs including I Am Today, New Song and Ring Song. The latter features lyrics by writer/producer Jordi Gasull.
The trailer makes good use of the Bangles song Walk Like an Egyptian, and since the characters are seen performing it, it might well have been the inspiration for the entire film. If so, this will be something to see.
