First look: Ewan McGregor's character from Jackboots on Whitehall

Ewan McGregor is the voice of Chris (photo above) while Alan Cumming also stars in the film as Hitler. Check out the on-the-set interview with the filmmakers here. Here's a synopsis of the film:

It's a WWII satirical comedy with puppets. We pick up the story just before the Nazi invasion. Once that happens, Churchill has to leave London, and the country's only chance of survival is a young farmer from Kent called Chris, played by Ewan McGregor. Chris has got these extraordinarily large hands, hands so big that he wouldn't be able to join the army. He has a chance to be the soldier that he always wanted to be, and he saves the day, basically. The film is a pastiche of 1940s, 50s and 60s war films, of romantic films, like Zulu, Lawrence of Arabia and Bridge over the River Kwai: big British films. [Netribution]
