Hi-5 on the BIG screen

Meet the new cast as Hi-5 hit the road with their debut cinema release!

One of world’s most loved and successful preschool children’s entertainment groups Hi-5 is about to hit the big screen. Hi-5’s Stevie and Lauren want you to share in the fun as they search for three new cast members in their debut big screen cinema premiere Hi-5 Some Kind of Wonderful which opens nationally across Hoyts cinemas on Saturday March 23 – with tickets on sale today.  I will be hitting my nearest cinema to watch this with the girls as well. At home when Hi-5 comes on TV they will stand in front of it both dancing away, even though Hayley (5) is the leader and Madison (2) often looks over to her bigger sister and copies her killer dance moves. It is really sweet to watch so I would love to take them along to the cinemas and watch them sing and dance along with other children.

The cinema release follows a worldwide search to find the best three young Aussies to fill the big shoes of departing cast members Casey, Fely and Tim. View the trailer here.

The cinema release features a step back in time looking at where it all began in 1999 right up until the final announcement of the three new cast members in 2013. Older audiences may remember the original cast members Nathan, Charli, Tim, Kelli and Kathleen along with the departing cast members Casey, Fely and Tim who return to judge the best of Australia’s talent throughout the extensive audition process.  Even I remember the old team, and used to lust over Nathan as he was such a cutie, and I think it was more the fact of how he just got on with the kids on the show (gosh I miss him being on there.) Don’t get me wrong the new cast is great and full of life which is what Hi-5 should be all about.

Parents will appreciate the tenacious behind the scenes search for talented individuals who will connect, educate and entertain the toughest audience in the world – preschoolers.

Hi-5 Some Kind of Wonderful provides a unique cinematic experience where children and parents alike will sing along to their favourite Hi-5 songs throughout the feature as Stevie and Lauren take the audience on a roller coaster ride of what the Hi-5 family is all about. I haven’t taken the kids together to the movies yet so it will be good letting them be rather then sitting there telling them to shush or be quiet.

Fresh from an extensive 2012 tour in Asia, the Australian re-launch of the multi Logie and ARIA award winning Hi-5 stays true to its original premise which is to encourage children to enjoy being active through dance, movement and play.

The brand new cast were officially announced on Saturday March 16 at a VIP pre-screening event in Sydney at Hoyts Entertainment Quarter Cinemas along with a special one-off live performance by the brand new cast.
