French / Japanese animated theatrical film directed by Michaël Dudok de Wit is co-produced by Studio Ghibli
A new trailer for La Tortue rogue ("The Red Turtle"), a French / Japanese animated film directed by Michaël Dudok de Wit and co-produced by Studio Ghibli and Wild Bunch, is now available online.
A film without dialog, The Red Turtle tells the story of a man who becomes ship-wrecked on a deserted island. When he attempts to build a raft to escape, he is thwarted in his efforts by a mysterious red turtle. As the trailer reveals, though, there's more to the story than was initially hinted at in the pre-release materials...
The Red Turtle will debut at the Cannes Film Festival on May 18, 2016. The film premieres in France on June 29, 2016, and in Japan on September 17, 2016.
