Ernest and Celestine return in this delightful and joyous feature follow-up to their first Academy Award nominated adventure, which introduced a bear and mouse as the unlikeliest of friends.

Ernest remains an ursine troubadour dedicated to a life of music and art, and his constant grouchiness is softened by the creative whims of his mouse friend Celestine. When she accidentally breaks his beloved violin, they must take a long voyage to Ernest’s country of Gibberitia, home to the only artist who can repair it. But when they arrive, they are shocked to discover that all forms of music have been banned in Gibberitia for many years, and a land once known across the world for its incredible musicians has fallen silent.

It is up to Ernest and Celestine and their new friends, including a mysterious masked outlaw, to bring music and happiness back to the land of bears.

This screening marks the launch of the 2023 Cinemagic Film Festival which runs throughout October in venues across Belfast, packed with new international films, workshops, education programmes, special events and Q&As to inspire young audiences. Visit for more details.
