McKellen's Magic Roundabout To Get Sequel

Film bosses are plotting a sequel to animated movie THE MAGIC ROUNDABOUT - even though the first installment has not yet been released.

The creators of the $24.3 million (GBP12.8 million) film - based on the cult 1960s BBC TV series - have already signed up SIR IAN McKELLEN to return as the voice of ZEBEDEE and KYLIE MINOGUE to reprise her vocal duties for FLORENCE.

Although movie-makers have no idea how popular The Magic Roundabout - released next month (FEB05) - will prove to be with cinema-goers, they're convinced the public will demand more.

Executive producer CAMERON McCRACKEN says, "We have been developing a sequel for about the past year.

"We have heaps of ideas."
