In the upcoming Gnomeo & Juliet , Shakespeare’s revered story gets a comic make-over.  Directed by Kelly Asbury (Shrek 2) and featuring both classic and original songs by Elton John. Gnomeo (voice of James McAvoy) and Juliet (voice of Emily Blunt) have as many obstacles to overcome as their namesakes… but with plastic pink flamingoes and thrilling lawnmower races in the mix, can these star-crossed lovers avoid tragedy and find a happy ending?

In Toronto, eOne Films has planned an event you will want to capture!

eOne Films invites you to join us as we attempt to break the Guinness World Records for the largest gathering of people dressed as garden gnomes.
An official judicator will be present!
