Heard of the film ‘Knor’? This heartwarming Dutch blockbuster is about to make headlines across the world — and it’s going to be in English!
The animation film ‘Knor’ (preciously named ‘Oink’ in English) follows the story of a girl, Babs, that receives a super-cute but chaotic little piglet, Knor, from her grandfather for her birthday.
She, of course, wants to keep it, but her parents say that Knor must follow a puppy course to become part of the family. Um, adorable?! Be right back, adopting a piglet. 🐖
This lovable film will soon win hearts all over the world after being sold to 28 countries in the past year, including South Africa, the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia, China, Spain, Germany, France and Japan, reports NU.nl.
Three Golden Calves movie awards
Knor has been a huge success, being awarded three Golden Calves awards at the Netherlands Film Festival, and there are even whispers that it could be a nominee for the Oscars.

For all Dutchies out there, you might recognize some of the big Dutch movie names in the credits. The main voices in the film are played by Jelka van Houten, Kees Prins, Henry van Loon, and Hiba Ghafry.
The film wasn’t an easy task to produce either. Knor is a stop-motion animation, so it’s composed of millions of individual pictures of clay and plastic puppets to slowly create a whole movie.
Want to catch the film in the Netherlands (in the original Dutch) Now’s your last chance, since it’s already been playing for almost a year.
Want to see it in English? Hopefully we won’t be waiting long. 🐽
