Story: Jack’s story be­gins when he is born in Scot­land in 1874, on the cold­est day of the year. When his young heart stops beat­ing, a clever mid­wife re­places it with a me­chan­i­cal one al­low­ing him to live. How­ever, Jack must avoid strong emo­tion, which might dis­rupt his heart’s del­i­cate ma­chin­ery.

Carolyn Lawrence, Mr. Lawrence, An­to­nio Ban­deras, Slash Story: The glob­ally pop­u­lar sea critters of Hil­len­burg’s top rank­ing an­i­mated se­ries re­turn to the big screen for a new ad­ven­ture, with reg­u­lar TV show cast repris­ing their fa­mil­iar roles and An­to­nio Ban­deras play­ing a pirate. The film will com­bine an­i­ma­tion with live­ac­tion scenes (di­rected by Mike Mitchell) shot in Sa­van­nah and Ty­bee Is­land.
