Stephen Mangan voicing Postman Pat in 3D movie

Rupert Grint, David Tennant and Jim Broadbent also onboard

Stephen Mangan, the Brit actor best known for comedy series Green Wing, will lend his voice to a new 3D animated movie based around the beloved children's TV character, Postman Pat.

He's got a starry bunch of supporting vocalists to back him up too, with Rupert Grint, David Tennant and Jim Broadbent also bagging roles.

The film, entitled Postman Pat: You Know You're The One, sees the titular postie leave Greendale to enter a glitzy, X Factor-type talent show.

That plot synopsis alone is enough to have us complaining about having unmentionables done to our childhoods, but the cast is pretty intriguing; could this be a genuinely funny take on the nostalgic material?

As long as black-and-white cat Jess and the red van (non-negiotiables) are involved, we'll give this one the benefit of the doubt. No word yet on whether it'll be stop-motion animation or CGI though.

The film is set to arrive in spring 2013.

Do you reckon Mangan will be able to pull off a Pat voice? Or should they get original actor/narrator Ken Barrie back? Is Fireman Sam next in line for the movie treatment? Let's discuss all of these pressing issues below please…
