Bringing to life the much-loved story by British poet Ted Hughes, The Iron Giant takes place in a quiet American town in the 1960s. The tale begins when a young boy named Hogarth follows a trail of huge footprints leading from his house into the woods - and finds an iron giant from space! Instantly the two form a firm friendship, and when the army try and destroy this enormous visitor, Hogarth does everything he can to protect his giant pal. Beautifully animated, this is a film with lots of wit and a huge amount of heart.

    I loved it. It was very dramatic and upsetting near the end. But it ended nicely.

    This 1999 classic is a fun filled adventure where man meets machine in the human world!

    When he has fun in the woods who knows what will happen next...

    When a young boy learns what the word friend really means, will it end in heartbreak for the two of them or will it be a happy ever after...
