Dominic Cooper Narrating Sky Kids’ ‘Dreamflight Sleepy Stories’ is out soon

Sky Kids has ordered a third run of True To Nature series Dreamflight.

Sky Kids has greenlit a third season of Dreamflight – Sleepy Stories, with narrators Dominic Cooper, Nina Sosanya, Rakie Ayola and Dervla Kirwan on board.

Dreamflight: Sleepy Stories is a “continuation and expansion” of the Sky Kids Dreamflight series, a “mindful, mood-enhancing collection of short nature films, carefully crafted and designed to promote a sense of well-being in young children.”

In the new season, individual episodes follow baby animal characters as they negotiate milestones in their young lives; meeting neighbours, making friends and overcoming challenges, “all ending in a calming cuddle and with their parents, siblings and carers as their rewarding day comes to a close and they settle down to sleep.”

The 20-episode short-form show is specifically designed to support the mental health and wellbeing of young children by introducing them to stunning wildlife and landscapes narrated by well-known actors. Past narrators have included heavy-hitters including Julie Walters, Russell Tovey and David Harewood.

Episodes in previous seasons have focused on “Lazy Lemurs,” “Flight of the Butterflies” and “Ballet Dancing Birds,” for example.

The series, which will launch later this month, is the latest from Sky Studios-backed True to Nature, the natural history producer run by former BBC Studios Natural History Unit Boss Wendy Darke.

Darke is exec producing alongside Ian France, Commissioning Editor for Sky Kids, and Nick Smith-Baker is series producer.

True to Nature is also behind Predators, the debut co-production from Sky and Netflix. It also produces the likes of CBBC’s One Zoo Three and Shark With Steve Backshall.

Darke said: “The third series of Dreamflight – Sleepy Stories will help young children, parents and carers unwind through experiencing the calming effect of connecting with nature and help promote mindfulness and wellbeing.”

The shows are narrated by Rakie Ayola, Dominic Cooper, Dervla Kirwan and Nina Sosanya, David Harewood, Sophie Okonedo, Dame Julie Walters, and Russell Tovey.

Dreamflight: Sleepy Stories is produced by True to Nature. Executive Producer is Wendy Darke and Series Producer is Nick Smith-Baker.
