Ernest & Celestine

Though it's mostly American animated films that made up the nominees for Best Animated Feature from the 86th Academy Award nominations, France got their film Ernest & Celestine nominated alongside The Croods, Frozen, Despicable Me 2 and The Wind Rises. Now the film is poised to get a release in the United States with a more familiar cast providing the voices for the English dubbed version. The US release of the film has the voices of Forest Whitaker, Mackenzie Foy, Lauren Bacall, William H. Macy, Megan Mullally, Nick Offerman and Jeffrey Wright. Now the first trailer featuring their voices is here. Watch!

The US trailer for Benjamin Renner, Vincent Patar & Stéphane Aubier's Ernest & Celestine from Apple:

Deep below snowy, cobblestone streets, tucked away in networks of winding subterranean tunnels, lives a civilization of hardworking mice, terrified of the bears who live above ground. Unlike her fellow mice, Celestine is an artist and a dreamer—and when she nearly ends up as breakfast for ursine troubadour Ernest, the two form an unlikely bond. But it isn’t long before their friendship is put on trial by their respective bear-fearing and mice-eating communities. Benjamin Renner, Vincent Patar & Stéphane Aubier all directed Ernest & Celestine which was already release overseas, but hits US theaters on February 28th.

It does invoke some sort of children's book buried somewhere in my memory.

This looks A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! And it goes to show that you don't need fancy, schmanzie CG (and I'm a CG artstist!) to tell a cool story. It's all about character and story. I'm in!

I saw it in french, it was very good and well crafted! Definitely had some studio ghibli influences in a few moments too.
