For their eighth fully animated feature, Illumination and Universal Pictures present THE GRINCH, based on Dr. Seuss’ beloved holiday classic. THE GRINCH tells the story of a cynical grump (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch) who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous holiday spirit. Funny, heart-warming and visually stunning, it is a universal story about the spirit of Christmas and the indomitable power of optimism.

THE GRINCH arrives in Irish cinemas November 9, 2018.
