Hot on the heels of The Thrupalorian comes yet another Threadny blockbuster: Brazen II - the much-anticipated sequel to Brazen. Brazen - the studio's first 3D computer-animated musical fantasy film - was the runaway success of 2013 when the tale of Elsewhere and her friend Bryony took children of all ages by storm, transporting them to a magical kingdom where Elsewhere's evil sister's dicey powers inadvertently trap them in an eternal winter of current affairs documentaries, radio and television news, Drexit-themed chat shows and a fixed-term Parliament. Only after challenging and defeating the mighty Ronald Tusk-Elk could they escape back to their homeland where a "once in a generation game-changing" General Election could, at last, take place. Described as "the most unlikely, yet at the same time most welcome, piece of escapism since Harry Houdini dropped his trousers", it was lauded by critics and moviegoers alike.
Brazen won two DAFTA Awards for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song ("For F**k's Sake Get Over It), the Golden Amanda for Best Animated Feature Film Made by Threadny Studios, the DAFTA Award for Best Animated Film involving a Tusk-Elk, five Edna Awards (including Best Animated General Election Feature), two Granny Awards for Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media and Best Song Written for Visual Media ("Me And My Big Black Rod"), and two Dorset Film Monthly Critics' Choice Movie Awards for Best Animated Feature Challenging a FIxed-Term Parliament and Best Original Song ("Please Release Me, I Really Need To Go"). An animated short sequel, Brazen Drexit, premiered on March 13, 2015, whilst an animated featurette titled Brazen and the Prisoner of Parliament, premiered on November 22, 2017.
Now Brazen II is set to start the frenzy all over again with Elsewhere and Bryony now battling to save their friends Boris Kristoff and Olaf Aminute from the evil bounder E Commissioner who, whilst refusing to redraw the constituency map better to reflect population movement and more nearly equalize electorate size, is, instead, intent on handing an inbuilt majority to the non-Liberal non-Democratic party. Can the plucky pair set up a Royal Commission and save the nation as polling day approaches? On the balance of probabilities, we imagine so.
