How To Watch The Amazing Maurice?: Don’t we all love ginger cats and their cunning? Toby Genkel has directed this animated film Amazing Maurice. Obviously, this animated film is about a streetwise ginger cat who leads a group of talking rats conning town after town. The film stars Hugh Laurie, Emilia Clarke, David Thewlis, Himesh Patel, and Gemma Arterton, among others.

Based on a novel by Terry Pratchett, this movie follows the life of a ginger cat named Maurice who makes a living out of scamming townspeople with the help of a few talking rats. He makes the rats terrorize the townspeople and then introduces them to a Pied Piper, leading them out of the town for money.

This whole facade goes on until they meet a nerdy woman named Malicia, the daughter of the mayor of the next town they plan to raid. Everything was planned, but as they arrive, it dawns upon them that something is wrong with the town. There are no rats there, but something or someone is still eating away the supplies and hence start their adventure.
