This summer, Discovery Family Film Club brings you two new family films filled with adventure-packed stories set on islands, from the Pacific Ocean to the Irish Atlantic coast. Kensuke’s Kingdom (2023), based on the best-selling children’s novel by Michael Morpurgo, centres on the adventures of a young boy who is shipwrecked on a desert island. Puffin Rock and the New Friends (2023) sees new adventures of Oona, Baba, May and Mossy joined by new arrivals to the island. 

We hope these films will whet your appetite for this year’s Discovery Film Festival in October – look out for the programme announcement in September. 

Based on the award-winning TV series, Puffin Rock and the New Friends sees our family favourites, Oona, Baba, May and Mossy joined by a new cast of characters, as Isabelle, Phoenix and Marvin arrive on the island. It’s an action-packed story which celebrates our magnificent natural environment, and features themes of belonging, courage and friendship. When the last Little Egg of the season disappears under mysterious circumstances, Oona and her new friends race against time to bring the Little Egg home before a big storm hits Puffin Rock and puts the entire island in danger.

Puffin Rock and the New Friends is another exquisite and enjoyable animation by Cartoon Saloon, the Irish animation studio behind equally delightful films Song of the Sea, The Secret of Kells and Wolfwalkers.
