A Plunderful Life

The Pirates! Band of Misfits Box Art

The Pirates! Band of Misfits

The award-winning makers of 'Chicken Run' present an all-new, swashbuckling stop-motion comedy adventure. With a rag-tag crew at his side, and seemingly blind to the impossible odds stacked against him, the Captain has one dream: to beat his bitter rivals Black Bellamy and Cutlass Liz to the much coveted Pirate Of The Year Award. It's a quest that takes our heroes from the shores of exotic Blood Island to the foggy streets of Victorian London. Along the way they battle a diabolical queen and team up with a haplessly smitten young scientist but never lose sight of what a pirate loves best: adventure!
