Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants Trailer

"Now the fate of this tiny world depends of the courage of a little ladybug." Aside from Pixar's A Bug's Life, we haven't seen that many animated films about bugs, but here's another one. Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants is an animated adventure about two tribes of ants - black and red - that end up in a war against each other after a box of sugar is discovered. This movie was actually first released in Europe in 2014 and is just now coming out in the UK, which is why there's a new trailer in 2016. It looks as if it's almost entirely dialogue-free, with the ants communicating through noises rather than any language. A male ladybug ends up caught in the middle of the battle, and just might help save the day. This doesn't look so bad, or does it?

New UK trailer for Hélène Giraud & Thomas Szabo's Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants, on YouTube:

Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants Poster

In a peaceful little clearing, the remains of a picnic hastily abandoned spark warfare between two tribes of ants. A bold young ladybug finds himself caught in the middle of the battle. He befriends one of the black ants, Mandible, and helps him save the anthill from the assault of the terrible red ant warriors, led by the fearful Butor. A fantastic journey at ground level. Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants is both written and directed by filmmakers Hélène Giraud & Thomas Szabo, making their feature debut after working on the same "Minuscule" TV series before this. The film originally premiered at a film festival back in late 2013, opening in theaters in Europe in 2014. It's just now getting a UK release this May of 2016, nearly 3 years after first debuting. No US date or distributor is available yet, we don't expect to see this released here.

Ok, that looks fun. But, can it work throughout the whole movie?

It wasn't until the very last scene that I recognized the animator and original animation! So glad to see it made it to the big screen!

Looks strange. Almost better served as a short. I will probably not be seeing this one.

nothing like trying to watch a trailer from first showing and there are video AD's on the side bar that keep playing and you can't mute or pause them so there sound overlaps with what I'm trying to watch.

Got a big Aardman vibe from it. I can get behind that. Looks pretty good.

Minuscule is a TV series. Each ep is about 5 mins long. They are good, but a feature length version could be a challenge to sit through.
