Captain Morten and the Spider Queen Gordon & Paddy

A film adaptation of Tor Åge Bringsværd and Anne G. Holt’s bestselling book in Norway about the adventures of two preschoolers. Interwoven with songs and animated fragments, this is a story about friendship and the difficulties associated with new situations in the lives of 5-year-olds, such as their first day of preschool or meeting new friends.

Emma will soon be celebrating her fifth birthday. She’s convinced that it’s time for her mother to give her the dog she’s been dreaming about. Casper has just moved with his family to a new home and is anxiously awaiting the start of preschool. The first person he meets there is Emma—thanks to her, it turns out to be not such a bad day after all, not to mention the start of a great friendship. Casper and Emma and their stuffed toys, Lion Cub and Miss Rabbit, spend every spare moment together. Their shared adventures teach them what friendship is all about and what it means to count on the help of a best friend.
