GKIDS and Shout! Factory Present the New Animated Film Marona’s Fantastic Tale on Blu-ray™+ DVD and Digital Download on November 10
GKIDS and Shout! Factory have announced the November 10th release of the new, critically-acclaimed animated film Marona’s Fantastic Tale on Blu-ray™+ DVD and digital. Both the French version with subtitles, and an English language version will be included in the release, and bonus features include an interview with the director Anca Damian, a Q&A from the Animation Is Film festival, an art gallery, and trailers.
From award-winning director Anca Damian (Crulic -The Path to Beyond) comes the poetic and life-affirming story of Marona, an optimistic stray dog who looks back on the human companions she has loved throughout her life. Born the last in the litter, little Marona’s adventures take her through a series of names and owners – a colorful acrobat, a sensitive construction worker, and a little girl – with dazzling style, pushing animation in bold new directions. But through all of her ups and downs, Marona’s Fantastic Tale is told with the patient, boundless love of a dog, reminding us that happiness is a small thing.
In addition to the Anca Damian, the talented artists behind Marona’s Fantastic Tale include character designer Brecht Evens, an award-winning Belgian cartoonist and Eisner Award nominee, known for his bright, stylized art, and background artists Gine Thorstensen from Norway, and Sarah Mazetti from Italy. This international animation team brought together the film’s unique graphic style, creating a visceral viewing experience.
An Annecy Official Selection in 2019, and winner of the 2019 Special Jury Prize at Animation Is Film festival, Marona’s Fantastic Tale is a warm and uniquely crafted adventure. The film had a virtual cinema release this summer, with further theatrical engagements planned for this Fall as theaters re-open.
