Disney Junior wanted to re-voice the existing animated poems with British star talent with a range of gender, texture and regional accents. Working with the top talent agents in the UK and US, a total of 15 star talent were cast for various poems and recorded in London, New York and LA. Assets were created at the recording sessions for publicity, mass media coverage was secured and the series was nominated for a BAFTA.

Full list of talent cast for this project: Simon Pegg, Matt Smith, Sharon Osbourne, David Walliams, Michelle Dockery, Richard E Grant, Catherine Tate, Billy Connelly, Ashley Jensen, Matt Baker, Tess Daly, Emilia Fox, Jessica Hynes, Joanna Page and Richard Briers.
