We are thrilled at how, with Chris Jenkins’ direction and L’Atelier’s outstanding CG animation, we were able to deliver a truly terrific movie that kids and families worldwide can enjoy.”

He added that “when the film was selected for Sundance – one animated movie from over 4,000 movie submissions – we were determined to plant a flag for our British film, which was warmly received by both audiences and critics alike. We know we are in safe hands with Tom and his team at Briarcliff to give the film its best shot in theatres in the US, complimenting the worldwide roll out currently underway with our existing strong team of international distributors.”

Briarcliff Entertainment’s Tom Ortenberg said, “We’re thrilled to be working with the talented team at GFM Animation and director Chris Jenkins. Crafting an animated feature designed for families is more than just creating entertainment; it’s about curating moments that resonate, spark joy, and create moviegoing memories for the whole family.
