    Mackesy shares the story of how the story’s journey began with him making drawings to cheer up his friends, before online success led to a book and now the Apple TV+ short. He explores his connections to the characters and the messages they give, and later discusses working with Isobel Waller-Bridge on the score and casting Idris Elba (The Fox), Tom Hollander (The Mole), and Gabriel Byrne (The Horse).
