FROM THE DISTRIBUTORS OF THE OSCAR®-NOMINATED
THE SECRET OF KELLS AND ENTERTAINMENT ONE COMES AN UNFORGETTABLE AND BREATHTAKING ANIMATED ADVENTURE!
MIA AND THE MIGOO
Street Date: 3rd QUARTER 2012
Blu-ray/DVD SRP: $29.98/$24.98
From the distributors of the Academy Award®-nominated The Secret of Kells, comes MIA AND THE MIGOO, the gorgeous second feature from renowned French animator Jacques-Rémy Girerd. A fable-like journey of a young girl who must overcome her fears on a quest to find her father and save the world from destruction, MIA AND THE MIGOO was created from an astounding 500,000 hand-painted frames of animation. A stunning work of art, breathtaking to behold, with backgrounds that invoke Van Gogh, Monet, and Cezanne, it also features the voices of Whoopi Goldberg, Matthew Modine, James Woods and Wallace Shawn.
Following a premonition, Mia sets out on a cross continental journey, though mountains and jungles in search of her father, who has been trapped in a landslide at a construction site on a remote tropical lake. In the middle of the lake stands the ancient Tree of Life, watched over by innocent, bumbling forest spirits called the Migoo, who grow and change shape as they please, morphing from small childlike beings to petulant giants. The Migoo have been disrupting the construction to protect this sacred site – and now together with Mia they join in a fight to find Mia’s father and save the Tree, with the future of life on Earth hanging in the balance.
