First Image From Sylvain Chomet's SWING POPA SWING
Acclaimed animation director Sylvain Chomet is revisiting the elderly singing sisters from his zany French comedy Triplets of Belleville in a prequel Swing Popa Swing and a concept image has our first look at these characters as young girls along with their dad.

As the image alludes the prequel to the Oscar-nominated film goes back to the triplets' childhood and deals with their relationship with their 100-year-old father, who wishes the trio to concentrate on studying medicine rather than music. There will also be sci-fi elements in the subplot involving aliens and a battle between CIA and KGB agents trying to capture their spacecraft.

According to producer Didier Brunner of Paris-based studio Les Armateurs, the project may be developed as a stereoscopic 3D CG-animated film. The project is currently in the conceptual phase and seeking co-financing partners at the annual Cartoon Movie event

The release date is set tentatively in 2014.

Then start burning. Chomet already used CGI in his last film. Like anything else it's a tool that can be used well or poorly, depending on whose hands it's in.

And in Triplets - he just covers it well by drawing over his CG with hand drawn lines. It gives it a rather unique look...
