On Monday ScreenAnarchy brought the first news from Beyond Beyond
, the upcoming animated feature from The Great Bear
director Esben Toft Jacobsen.
At the time all we had was the title and two pieces of concept art released as part of the project's involvement at the Cartoon Movie project market but with the film being presented at the EFM we can now follow that up with the first three actual stills from the film - added to the gallery with the concept art below - and story details.
Beyond is a story about wanting the impossible. And it is a story about a
little boy, not old enough to know the guidebook to life, picking a fight with
the most powerful force. Learning about existence little by little.
Johan and his father have lived at sea for as long as Johan can remember.
Or at least since he was three when his mother disappeared. Johan likes the

Beyond Beyond takes place in two universes: the world of the living and the
world of the dead - The Kingdom of the Feather King. The world of the living

Kingdom of the Feather King is an infinitely large place with infinite numbers
of rabbits. As the story Beyond Beyond goes on The Kingdom of the Feather King
changes from being a very sad place to be an amazing place to spend eternity.
And this change is what Beyond Beyond is all about.
