  • The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists (DVD release)

Hugh Grant, Martin Freeman and David Tennant talk The Pirates!: video

The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists hits DVD and Blu-ray next week, and we’ve got an exclusive early look at a bonus featurette (which you can watch below).

Hugh Grant discusses the unusual task of getting into character when you’re playing a plasticine pirate, and also shares his bemusement at the quality of his co-stars.
Co-stars Martin Freeman and David Tennant also contribute to the featurette on voice acting.

Aardman/Sony Pictures animation The Pirates! sees Grant’s Pirate Captain attempting to bag the elusive ‘Pirate of the Year’ award for seven-seas adventuring. Charles Darwin (Tennant) may be key to landing the prize, but The Pirate with a Scarf (Freeman) isn’t convinced.
Check out the featurette below:

The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists is available on (deep breath) Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download from 10 September 2012.
