Channel 4 head of drama Caroline Hollick said: “Channel 4’s original Christmas animation has become a real highlight over the years and this year will be no exception.

“I’m delighted Julie Walters, Hugh Dancy and David Harewood will be bringing to life this wonderful, funny and moving yuletide tale.”

The Abominable Snow Baby will follow previous Channel 4 Christmas animations including The Snowman, The Tiger Who Came To Tea and last year’s Clown by Quentin Blake.
