Fans of Academy Award nominated ‘The Secret Of Kells’ or ‘Skunk Fu’ will be pleased to know that Cartoon Saloon are working on a new feature length animation called ‘Song Of The Sea’. Directed by Tomm Moore and currently in production, were unlikely to see this on our cinema screens until 2013, but just from this conceptual trailer I think it’ll be worth the wait.
This is the synopsis lifted from Cartoon Saloon’s website: “The story of the last Seal Child’s journey home. After their mother’s disappearance, Ben and Saoirse are sent to live with Granny in the city. When they resolve to return to their home by the sea, their journey becomes a race against time as they are drawn into a world Ben knows only from his mother’s folktales. But this is no bedtime story; these fairy folk have been in our world far too long. It soon becomes clear to Ben that Saoirse is the key to their survival.”
Whilst on Cartoon Saloon’s website I also noticed they’re working on a feature length ‘Skunk Fu’ called ‘Exit The Dragon’, which should also be pretty awesome.
