Tom to narrate children’s adaptation of “Henry V”

Tom will narrate a new children’s adaptation of Henry V. The film will premiere in primary schools throughout the country during Shakespeare Week from March 16-22.

New venture WillShake aims to open Shakespeare’s plays up to a younger audience by having young people take on his famous characters.

Director Joe Talbot said: “We wanted to let children hear the language, feel the mood and see the story unfold in the most exciting and relevant way. The blend of Shakespeare, film and digital technology allows young people in every corner of the UK to connect with the tale.”

Hiddleston added: “With WillShake, Joe Talbot and Emily Blacksell have achieved something wonderful. They have completely reimagined the possibilities for children and their first contact with Shakespeare. Their Henry V film is fresh, dynamic and so lovingly crafted that it’s impossible not to stand up for it. Bravo.”

Hiddleston recently won a What’s On Stage Award for his performance in a new production of Shakespeare’s Coriolanus.
