Ireland’s Cartoon Saloon animation studio has released a beautiful new trailer for its upcoming hand-drawn animated feature Song of the Sea. Check out the trailer after the jump…
Directed by Tomm Moore (The Secret of Kells), the film tells a fanciful story about the Irish Selkies, mythical creatures who exist as seals in the sea but become human on dry land. The story focuses on Saorise, who is the last Seal-child, and her brother Ben. Voice talent for the film includes Brendan Gleeson, Fionnula Flanagan, Lisa Hannigan, Pat Shortt, David Rawle, Jon Kenny, Liam Hourican, Kevin Swierszsz, and Lucy O’Connell.
The release date is still TBD. Moore is keeping a blog about the project, which provides a unique look into the creation of an animated film. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more about this one-of-a-kind feature.
