Shout Factory revealed more details today about its pickup of the hand-drawn French adventure film Long Way North (Tout en haut du monde), which we first reported on Cartoon Brew last week.
Sold by Urban Distribution International, Shout has secured all U.S. distribution rights to the Rémi Chayé-directed film, including theatrical, broadcast, video on-demand, digital and home entertainment rights for cross-platform releases.
The Los Angeles-based Shout plans a strategic rollout across multiple platforms, beginning with a theatrical launch in fall 2016 through its family imprint, Shout! Factory Kids. Long Way North will have its North American premiere next month at the New York International Children’s Film Festival.
