Cartoon Network UK Teams Up With Paramount Pictures To Celebrate The Launch Of The Sherlock Gnomes Movie

Cartoon Network UK has partnered up with Paramount Pictures to promote the new animated movie – Sherlock Gnomes. Sherlock Gnomes will be previewed in cinemas this weekend and will be released nationwide on Friday 11th May. To celebrate the launch of Sherlock Gnomes, Cartoon Network UK is inviting kids to get creative and colour in a giant wall featuring the characters from the new movie as well as a giant gnome, plus there will be an opportunity to meet and take photos with the characters in costume and even exclusive giveaways. This is the first time Turner has included events as part of their promotional campaigns. The promotion isn’t just exclusive to the UK, the Sherlock Gnomes pan-European deal with Paramount Pictures also includes ad placements on Turner’s on-air and digital properties in France, Italy, Spain and Germany.

The first Sherlock Gnomes colouring and meet the characters event will be held on Saturday 5th May at the Bluewater Shopping Centre near Dartford, Kent, just outside Southeast London, the second event will be held the next day on Sunday 6th May at the Westfield London Shopping Centre in White City, London.

In addition to the two events this weekend, Cartoon Network has also created a co-branded Dangers of the Garden promotion which will be featured on-air during the run-up to the film’s theatrical release. Alongside the on-air promotion on the channel, there’s a digital promotion for the film on the Cartoon Network website, which features games based on the movie, including memory and spot the difference games as well as paper crafts and colouring activities.

Sherlock Gnomes is an action‐adventure detective chase across London, as Gnomeo and Juliet look to the legendary Sherlock Gnomes to solve a big case. The movie is a sequel to the successful Gnomeo and Juliet movie released in 2011 and is loosely based around the literary character – Sherlock Holmes and book series written by Arthur Conan Doyle. The movie is directed by Academy Award nominee and Annie Award winner John Stevenson, known for directing Dreamworks Animation’s Kung Fu Panda.
