The classic Aussie story Storm Boy is set to return to our cinema screens, in a new take on Colin Thiele’s tale from Underbelly director Shawn Seet.

Originally made for the movies in 1976, this take on the much-loved story of a boy and his pelican stars Geoffrey Rush, Jai Courtney and David Gulpilil (playing the father of his character from that first movie). The cute kid role is filled by newcomer Finn Little, and he owns the screen in this trailer.

Storm Boy is set to take flight in Australian cinemas on January 17, 2019.
