One of the world’s most loved and successful preschool children’s entertainment groups, Hi-5, is about to hit the big screen with Hi-5 Some Kind of Wonderful which opens nationally across Hoyts cinemas on Saturday 23rd March.

Hi-5 was launched in Australia 15 years ago with five dynamic adult performers entertaining children aged 2-5 years with music, movement, problem solving and play.

Fans will also have the opportunity to meet the new team when Hi-5 hit the road to meet their fans in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane in March and April.

The cinema release follows a worldwide search to find the best three young Aussies to fill the big shoes of departing cast members Casey, Fely and Tim.

The cinema release features a step back in time looking at where it all began in 1999 right up until the final announcement of the three new cast members in 2013. Older audiences may remember the original cast members Nathan, Charli, Tim, Kelli and Kathleen along with the departing cast members Casey, Fely and Tim who return to judge the best of Australia’s talent throughout the extensive audition process.

Parents will appreciate what goes on behind the scenes to search for talented individuals who will connect, educate and entertain the toughest audience in the world – preschoolers.

“It was great to see so many talented performers audition for Hi-5, and their enthusiasm and incredible energy comes across in the feature,” says Stevie.

“It was a tough job choosing three but everyone is really pleased with the new friends we have chosen and we can’t wait to work with them and introduce them across the world,” says Lauren.

Hi-5 Some Kind of Wonderful provides a cinematic experience where children and parents alike can sing along to their favourite Hi-5 songs throughout the feature as Stevie and Lauren take the audience on a roller coaster ride of what the Hi-5 family is all about.

Fresh from an extensive 2012 tour in Asia, the Australian re-launch of the multi Logie and ARIA award winning Hi-5 stays true to its original premise which is to encourage children to enjoy being active through dance, movement and play.

The vibrant Hi-5 cast will visit cinemas in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Find your nearest cinema and the details below.
