The Boy In The Bubble

Alan Rickman's narration makes this Burtonesque 3D feature look kind of watchable. I'm not sure about the quality of animation or it's obvious Tim Burton styling, but I'll reserve judgement until I've seen more.

Rupert, a ten year old boy, falls hopelessly in love for the first time. When it all goes terribly wrong, he wishes never to experience heartache again. Turning to a book of magic, he invokes a spell to shield him from emotion forever.

Do you happen to know when this film will be on general release? I've looked everywhere & can't find a date yet! :-)

Contrary to what I said in my post 'The Boy In The Bubble' is actually a short film not a feature length animation. It's currently doing the festival circuit and won the Don Quixote Award for best overall short film at the at the Galway Film Fleadh earlier in July.

Thank you! As usual, it seems us Alan Rickman fans won't be able to see his work; but I applaud him for supporting such things always :-)
