GKIDS has released a full trailer for Song of the Sea in anticipation of the film’s December launch in North America.

The Cartoon Saloon-produced film was directed by Tomm Moore who introduced his personal approach to feature animation, punctuated with sharp design and folklore inspiration, in his feature debut The Secret of Kells. That earlier film surprised the industry with an Oscar nomination in 2010, and based on the early reception to Song of the Sea, Moore may have another awards season contender on his hands.

Song of the Sea is slated for a December 19 release in New York City and Toronto, followed by an expansion to Los Angeles and other U.S. and Canadian cities throughout the holidays.
