Freddie says: “As a life-long fan of Dennis, I am honoured to voice him for a new generation. I am so excited to be carrying on the red and black-striped legacy of a character adored for his mischievousness, energy, live in the moment attitude and full-on imagination. To borrow Dennis’ catchphrase, ‘this is going to be blam!’”

Dennis & Gnasher: Unleashed will follow the daring duo and a gang of friends as they get into scrapes in a world full of action packed adventure where rules just get in the way. There will be lots of high energy humour and Dennis’ trade mark inimitable sense of fun where imagination knows no bounds.
