TASCHEN, one of the world’s leading publishers of illustrated art books, has recently published a new book that Disney fans will definitely want to ask Santa for this Christmas.

Long Way North, the animated motion picture from French animator and director Rémi Chayé and producer Henri Magalon, is beginning its first run theatrical release in the United States.

They had a lot of interesting things to say about their creative choices and the process of making this beautiful and distinctive animated feature.
