Watch: New US Trailer for Tomm Moore's Animated 'Song of the Sea'
"Those stories that mum told me – they're all true." GKids has released a brand new US trailer for Tomm Moore's animated Song of the Sea, a beautiful film out of Ireland about the folklore legend of the Selkies. Tomm Moore was the director of the Oscar nominee The Secret of Kells and tells a different story about family and love in this new adventure, Song of the Sea, about a boy named Ben (voiced by David Rawle) and his little sister Saoirse, who is a Selkie. I saw this film at the Toronto Film Festival and it is wonderful, have nothing but good things to say about it, from the voices to the animation to the story, and the music, it was all so lovely. It's a gem. If you feel entranced by this trailer, you definitely need to see this. Have a look.
Here's the new US trailer for Tomm Moore's animated Song of the Sea, in high def from Apple:
Tomm Moore's Song of the Sea tells the story of Ben and his little sister Saoirse -- the last Seal-child -- who embark on a fantastic journey across a fading world of ancient legend and magic in an attempt to return to their home by the sea. The film takes inspiration from the mythological Selkies of Irish folklore, who live as seals in the sea but become humans on land. Song of the Sea features the voices of Brendan Gleeson, Fionnula Flanagan, David Rawle, Lisa Hannigan, Pat Shortt and Jon Kenny. It's directed by Oscar nominated filmmaker Tomm Moore (The Secret of Kells), from a script by newcomer Will Collins. Music is by composer Bruno Coulais and Irish band Kíla, both of whom previously collaborated on Secret of Kells. After premiering at TIFF 2014 this year, GKids will release Song of the Sea in theaters on December 19th.
