Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile
Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile, starring Javier Bardem, Constance Wu and Shawn Mendes, is a brand-new comedy adventure movie for the whole family!

Squealing Pig is a tale about a pig who wanted more from life than just his pig pen. Keen on wine, but not a fan of the bore that you get with it, he began his adventure in New Zealand, before travelling to Australia and spreading his wings to other parts of the world. The Squealing Pig ethos is to make cracking wines that are approachable, flavour-packed and pair brilliantly with no-fuss foods. And to have more fun than anyone else doing it.
