Leap! Movie Trailer

"You're a weirdo." The Weinstein Company has debuted a new trailer for the animated movie titled Leap!, originally titled Ballerina. The film has already opened in theaters in most of Europe, and is scheduled to open in the US in March. It's actually originally from France, but has been redubbed with English voices, including Elle Fanning as the voice of Félicie Milliner, as well as Dane DeHaan, Maddie Ziegler and Carly Rae Jepsen. The story is about an orphan girl who dreams of being a ballerina. She ends up in Paris where she tries her best to make her dreams come true. We posted the UK trailer for this movie previously, which I said reminds me of Frozen with all the twirling, but this new trailer seems to be better. Take a look.

Here's the new US trailer (+ UK poster) for Eric Summer & Éric Warin's Leap!, originally from The Playlist:

Ballerina Poster

Set in 1879 Paris. An orphan girl dreams of becoming a ballerina and flees her rural Brittany for Paris, where she passes for someone else and accedes to the position of pupil at the Grand Opera house. Ballerina (aka Leap!) is co-directed by French filmmakers Eric Summer (of TV work including "Interventions", "Profilage", "Sous le soleil", "Dark Realm") & Éric Warin (making his feature debut after the animated short Alex and the Ghosts and working in character design previously). The screenplay is written by Carol Noble, Eric Summer and Laurent Zeitoun. The film already opened in Europe this December. The Weinstein Company will release Leap! in select US theaters starting March 3rd, 2017 in just a few months. Anyone?

    Those magical stories on film are becoming less and less magical and, at the same time, more of the same. I'm afraid even children are getting that ...
    • A generic story for a generic audience...

        Unfortunately ...

        They are called kids...do you scrutinize every new doll at the toy store? oh wait...that probably violates the court order
        • Nope. It's called insult to their intelligence. Unless this is aimed towards 3-5 year old girls. It's just pixel laziness
    • RAW_D
      It's the ballerina story they NEED, not necessarily the ballerina story they WANT...wait....yeah...that didn't make any sense. Just like these movies. BTW, looked at the January releases as far as films go...it's dismal.
    • Foffee
      Its for kids...they still love them...plus new kids are being born all the time...I know this might be hard to understand but they arent targeting YOU with every movie nor should they
      • shiboleth
        Exactly. These are films for kids. Nothing could be sadder than this. People behind films like these, doesn't consider only adults as idiots but they also hold that kids are idiots, too. I have nothing against films for kids, quite the contrary to it. I just think that films made for kids consider them as mentally unfit to understand something smarter ...

    Boo.

    I only like dark, sexy ballerina stories

      Don't we all?

    Theres nothing more comical than watching the Usual Trolls of this site pick a part a kids movie that isn't even being made for them. My 3 year old would love this movie. Losers with keyboards
    • My kids up for watching it, he's nine. Compared to the Emoji movie, it looks ok.
