David Tennant did a podcast with James Corden. When asked if his children liked that he did voice acting on Trolls, James replied: “They love that I’m in Trolls, they like that I’m Peter Rabbit. Nothing has ever. ..nothing has ever stumped the Gruffalo, I don’t think. ‘Cause that’s… just, you know… a very … yeah: That’s lovely. And I think my youngest daughter is about to discover that quite soon.” It’s so nice that those two films still have a place in his heart and we loved hearing him mentioning it. The way he talks about it is worth listening to rather than reading it.
