The night we’ve all been waiting for is almost here! You know what we’re taking about… it’s nearly time for the Late Late Toy Show.
Taking place tomorrow evening on RTE One, this year’s theme is the Wonderful World of Roald Dahl and of course, Ryan will portray the role of Fantastic Mr Fox.
The opening number, filmed partially in The Library of the Royal Irish Academy, will feature key moments from the likes of Matilda, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, The Twits as well as James and the Giant Peach.
“This has been a year like no other, and therefore requires an opening like no other,” Ryan said.
“The Wonderful World of Roald Dahl is one that understands children in a way that no one else ever has. He knew that there could be a sadness to the world at times, but that there’s also great love and mischief and fun to be found.
“All of those factors have been combined to bring what we hope is a joyful, beautiful, and wonderful opening like no other to this year’s Late Late Toy Show.”
He continued, “This is the dream theme for a bookish person like me, I’ve been talking about my love of reading since I was a little boy.
“I love Fantastic Mr Fox and I’m rather enjoying being a fox for this opening because it’s so different from what has gone before. What we have in store really captures The Wonderful World of Roald Dahl… everybody is welcome, it’s going to be a night of nights in a year of years.”
The Late Late Toy Show airs on Friday, November 27th at 9.35pm on RTÉ One. Will you be tuning in?
