Posted by Stephanie April on

Ever wondered who voices the Room on the Broom characters? 

If you’re interested in The Room on the Broom soft toy set, be sure to use the code ROTBBUNDLE when you buy 4 pieces or more from the range.

One of Julia Donaldson's favourite stories - The charming story features the protagonist Witch on her travels through faraway lands as she is joined by various animals along her journey until they find themselves saving the Witch from a fearsome Dragon who tries to catch her.

At Character Toy Store we stock all of the range If you would like a buy the entire bundle you can get 15% off with this code ROTBUNDLE at the checkout. 

Narrated by Simon Pegg, the story also features some famous voices you will no doubt recognise. 

X Files actress Gillian Anderson plays the Witch.


Cat is the Witches’ pet who doesn't really want any more creatures to join them both on their broomstick. Voiced by Little Britain’s Rob Brydon. 


Voiced by Martin Clunes, Dog is the first animal to join them, who they find bounding out of the bushes with the Witches hat in his jaws.
Witch doesn't hesitate in asking him to jump on board.


Sally Hawkins voices the little green Bird. When the story winds blew, her bow falls from her plaits, so down they fly to the field where it lands, only to find a green bird with her bow in its beak. Yep, it too jumps onboard and already the broomstick is looking crowded. 


Over the reeds and rivers, they fly, as they shoot through the stormy sky. Whoops! What was that The Witch drops her wand, so they have to make another stop only to find a green frog with her wand in his hand. David Walliams voices the the cheeky frog.

It seems the broom isn't strong enough for 5, as the broom snaps in two and the animals fall leaving the Witch on the front half of her broom.

When a huge fire-breathing red dragon (voiced by Timothy Spall) sees her, he gives chase breathing fire and smoke until he catches her and lands next to a swamp.
Then out of the swamp, the animals together rise all covered in mud, looking like a huge monster scaring the Dragon away.

Off he sculks leaving them in peace and the gang are reunited. With no broomstick, the animals collect ingredients needed to cast a special spell to make a truly magnificent broom with enough room for everyone!

With a seat for the cat, the dog and the witch, a shower for the frog and a nest for the bird.

The film was Oscar nominated for Best Animated Short Film in 2014.
