    The absolute zenith of animation we’ve been waiting for all year.
    And in a year that’s already blessed us with The Lego Movie, How To Train Your Dragon 2 AND the Tamako Market movie, that makes for one sweet cherry on top of this animated sundae.

    GKIDS is only handling North American distribution. West End Films is handling international sales. Not sure in which territories the film has already been sold.

    I’m looking forward to it. Hopefully it will make its way to Australia.
