Any proposed animated feature film that looks promising, deserves attention and Longway North
(aka Tout en Haut du Monde) definitely falls under this camp based on the gorgeous footage from its pilot trailer. The in-development project is directed by Rémi Chayé
, the first assistant director/storyboard artist of The Secret of Kells
, written by Claire Paoletti and Patricia Valeix, and produced by Paris-based Sacrebleu Productions
Sasha, a young Russian aristocratic girl at the end of the 19th century, dreams of the Great North and languishes over Oloukine, her grandfather, a renowned scientist and Arctic explorer, who has not returned from his last expedition to conquer the North Pole. He transmitted his location to Sasha which is far from satisfying her parents as they have already arranged for their daughter to marry. She revolts against this destiny, flees and is resolved to going to join Oloukine a longway north.
The target release date is sometime in 2014. You'll find the 2-minute pilot trailer embedded below.
