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.
