Watch: Stunning US Trailer for Animated Adaptation of 'The Prophet'

May 1, 2015

Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet

About one month ago, we featured a beautiful international trailer for an animated adaptation of Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet, a big screen version of the collection of prose and poems known around the world. Now another gorgeous domestic trailer for the film featuring several different kinds of animation has arrived, all connected by an artist (Liam Neeson), his housekeeper (Salma Hayek), and her daughter (voiced by Quvenzhané Wallis). This looks like it'll be a nice break from the blockbuster action extravaganzas late this summer, with wonderful animation to stimulate your eyes and your mind. There's also supposed to be some great new music from Glen Hansard, Damien Rice and Yo-Yo Ma. Watch below!

Here's the US trailer for Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet from GKIDS Films:

You can still watch the previous international trailer for Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet right here.

Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet is directed by Roger Allers, Paul and Gaëtan Brizzi, Joan C. Gratz, Mohammed Saeed Harib, Tomm Moore, Nina Paley, Bill Plympton, Joann Sfar, and Michal Socha. Inspired by the collection of prose and poems of the same name, the film tells the story of an unlikely friendship between a young, mischievous girl and an imprisoned poet. Interwoven with Gibran’s lyrical and inspiring words on the true nature as love, work, children, and freedom, is a variety of animation and music. The film premiered at Cannes Film Festival in 2014, also played TIFF, and GKIDS releases it in the US August 7th.

    This looks deservedly pretentious.

    I'm not really into the fake 2D 3D :/
    • I'm With Mel
      Yeah, I'm not either. It looks really cheap and half assed.
      • JohnIGottschalk
        I don't really think it looks cheap, I know how much effort this all takes, but it's just not for me.
