Official synopsis: Once upon a time, in the faraway kingdom of Dor, there was magic in the air, laughter aplenty & gallons of mouthwatering soup. But an accident left the King broken-hearted, the Princess filled with longing & the townsfolk without their soup. Sunlight disappeared. The world became gray. All hope was lost in this land until Despereaux Tilling (Matthew Broderick) was born.

A modern fairy tale, The Tale of Despereaux tells the story of four unlikely heroes: Despereaux , a brave mouse banished to the dungeon for speaking with a human; Roscuro (Dustin Hoffman), a good-hearted rat who loves light & soup, but is exiled to darkness; Pea (Emma Watson), a Princess in a gloomy castle who is prisoner to her father’s grief; & Mig (Tracey Ullman), a servant girl who longs to be a Princess, but is forced to serve the jailer.

Tiny & graced with oversized ears, Despereaux was born too big for his little world. Refusing to live his life cowering, he befriends a Princess named Pea & learns to read (rather than eat) books—reveling in stories of knights, dragons & fair maidens. Banished from Mouseworld for being more man than mouse, Despereaux is rescued by another outcast, Roscuro, who also wants to hear the tales. But when the Princess dismisses Roscuro’s friendship, he becomes the ultimate rat & plots revenge with fellow outsider Mig.

After Pea is kidnapped, Despereaux discovers he is the only one who can rescue her & that even the tiniest mouse can find the courage of a knight in shining armor. In this tale of bravery, forgiveness & redemption, one small creature will teach a kingdom that it takes only a little light to show the truth: what you look like doesn’t equal what you are.
