The sequel to A Street Cat Named Bob gets lined up for a Christmas release, it’s been announced – and here’s the trailer too.

After the first film – A Street Cat Named Bob – turned into a solid success for Sony Pictures a few years ago, plans came together for a sequel movie. And not to put too fine a point on it, here it is.

Bob is, if you’re unfamiliar, the street cat who befriended James Bowen. Bowen at the time was a homeless musician, and their friendship would transform his life. Bowen and Bob would work together as the former sold copies of the brilliant The Big Issue magazine, and gradually built his life up to become a bestselling author.

The new film has a few changes to it. A different distributor for a start, with Lionsgate taking over from Sony Pictures. Behind the camera meanwhile in comes Charles Martin Smith to helm the picture, that Garry Jenkins has penned. Luke Treadway reprises the role of James, and Bob the cat – who sadly passed away earlier this year – takes his final screen role too.

The film is out in UK cinemas and on premium video on demand from November 6th. And we’ll leave you with the trailer and synopsis. Trailer first…

And here’s that synopsis…

 Based on the international best-selling books and the ‘purrfect’ Christmas sequel to the international hit film A STREET CAT NAMED BOB – follow James and his best friend, Bob on their new journey together. From the day James Bowen rescued a street cat abandoned in the hallway of his sheltered accommodation, they began a friendship which has transformed both their lives and touched millions around the world. In A CHRISTMAS GIFT FROM BOB, James looks back at the last Christmas he and Bob spent scraping a living on the streets and how Bob helped him through one of his toughest times – providing strength, friendship and inspiration. Ultimately teaching each other about the true meaning of Christmas spirit along the way.
