Here at Jammy Toast, we came across some excellent news today. One of our favourite 1970s cartoons; Ivor The Engine, is to be made into a live action feature film. Ivor the Engine was a firm favourite with a whole generation of 1970s schoolchildren. Now the son of co-creator Oliver Postgate is planning to turn the classic series about a friendly Welsh steam train into a live action feature film – after being inspired by the success of Paddington. Already stars including Rhys Ifans, Rob Brydon, Eddie Izzard and Cerys Matthews have narrated Ivor stories for a charity audiobook to be released this week. Now Daniel Postgate has revealed big plans to involve them in a family-friendly movie made by his new production company Quintet Pictures.
