Peppa Pig: The Movie (called The Peppa Movie in the UK) is a 2015 American-British CelAction2D-animated comedy film based on the Peppa Pig series by Neville Astley and Mark Baker. The film stars the series cast (Harley Bird, Alice and Oliver May, Richard Ridings, Morwenna Banks, Meg Hall, and many more) who returned to reprise their roles from the series. The film was announced in 2013 at Comic-Con and was released in 2015. It was produced by Entertainment One, Rubber Duck Entertainment, and Astley Baker Davies Ltd, and was distributed by Universal Pictures.
The film picks up after the series 4 episode "Pirate Treasure." Peppa and her friends now go on adventures with her family, to places like Potato City, the playground, and the playgroup.
The film had its premiere on January 19, 2015 in the UK and was released on February 6, 2015, in the United States.
A sequel is set to be released on May 5, 2017.
Daddy Pig is at a cinema, cueing for a popcorn and a drink. Mr. Zebra said it's ten pounds, which makes Daddy Pig shocked. A ticket line shows up, and everyone gave Miss Rabbit tickets for Peppa Pig: The Movie. We then cut to a theater place, where Suzy Sheep said that Peppa is going to be on the big screen, but Emily Elephant said that they wanted a movie about herself.
We zoom into the screen where we see Peppa's house, and she and George wake up and have breakfast, and then Daddy Pig tells Peppa and George they are going to the museum. Meanwhile at the dinosaur room, Peppa runs into Emily Elephant looking at the roaring dinosaur, and then Peppa tells her not to stand on the X, and then Emily says that it's not gonna roar, but then the dino roared, blowing Emily out Of The mueseum to Mr. Fox, but Peppa is a bit surprised, and then Suzy comes and tells Peppa that there's a new cake in the cafe, and then Daddy Pig smells it and it just disappears into the cafe.
Daddy Pig starts flying through Russia but returns to the museum, and the Pig family goes home and eats dinner and sleeps. Peppa invites Suzy, Danny, Rebecca, Emily, and Pedro to come to Italy with her.
In Italy, Peppa decides to get a pizza, but it is only to reveal that Pedro craves for not only sleep, but pizza. So when they get a 10" pizza, Pedro starts to munch the pizza all the way, but Danny asked if Pedro was gonna save some for them, but went nevermind when Pedro got confused why.

After Neville Astley and Mark Baker (the creators of Peppa Pig), finished off the fourth season, they decided to do a feature film based on the series. In 2013, the film was greenlit, and all the main cast reprised their roles from the series. The film's title was The Peppa Movie in the UK, and Peppa Pig: The Movie, in other countries.
The film was going to be released in October 2014, but it was delayed to February 6, 2015, to give the film more time. Peppa Pig: The Movie is the first CelAction2D film ever made.
A video game, set after the film, was published by Activision.
Peppa Pig: The Movie opened on February 6, 2015, along with Fifty Shades Of Grey and Jupiter Ascending on its opening weekend. Behind Blackhat, the film grossed 2,000 million. The budget for the movie was 6,000 million dollars. Meaning that Peppa Pig: The Movie bombed at the box office
Because of it's release date, the movie had competition with The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water
