About the series

An adventure of giant proportions...

Delve deep into the world of tiny giants.

In an adventure of giant proportions, Tiny Giants 3D reveals the astonishing lives of the smallest of animals.

Using the incredibly immersive power of specialist 3D cameras, audiences are transported in a very intimate way into another world to experience the titanic battles these creatures face to survive.

A chipmunk in a wild wood and a grasshopper mouse in Arizona’s scorched deserts are both forced to grow up fast when they find themselves alone for the first time. Only by using their ingenious superpowers can our heroes not only stay alive, but also become masters of their universe.

Tiny Giants 3D is inspired by the BBC original television series Hidden Kingdoms. The US premiere of the BBC/Discovery Channel co-production – renamed Mini Monsters and narrated by Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) – aired as a two-hour special on Discovery in May 2014.
