The first full-length Shopkins film is set to launch on DVD, digital and TV this autumn.

Moose Toys has appointed UPHE Content Group, an entity of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, to distribute the Shopkins film.

“We are thrilled to bring the world of Shopville to life in a fun, new way,” said Belinda Gruebner, marketing director at Moose Toys.

"The success of our YouTube webisode series is testament to the fact that our fans are content hungry and we see this full-length film as the ideal platform to invite our fans on this next adventure of the Shopkins journey. It’s fantastic to be working with a partner such as the UPHE Content Group as their global presence, distribution strength and creative approach make them the perfect long-term partner for Moose.”

Helen Parker, executive vice president, UPHE Content Group, added: “It is rare you see a brand become such a global phenomenon so rapidly.

“This is the ideal time for us to partner with Moose and bring this rich storyline to life with a new and engaging full-length offering that will no doubt excite Shopkins’ ever expanding and fiercely loyal fan base. This is Moose’s debut feature-length piece and we are excited to be a part of this journey. We see this as the start of a successful partnership."

The first ever Shopkins film marks the screen debut of the Shoppies characters, alongside fan favourites Kooky Cookie, Apple Blossom, Lippy Lips and Cheeky Chocolate. The storyline will focus on PeppaMint and her attempts to win over the friendship of the other Shoppies Bubbleisha, Jessicake and Donatina.

The DVD will be packaged to include an exclusive Kooky Cookie character and to coincide with this release, both the Shopkins Season Six and Shoppies Dolls ranges will feature characters showcased within the film.
