Early Sum­mer DVD Re­fresh­ers

Animation Magazine - - Home Video -

Kick back with in­die dar­ling Ernest & Celestine, a Hell­boy dou­ble fea­ture, Marvel Knights and Bob’s Burg­ers. By Mercedes Mil­li­gan. While this painterly 2D adap­ta­tion of Daniel Pennac’s charm­ing kids tale was edged out by Frozen in the Os­car race, rack­ing up hon­ors from the Ce­sars, Cannes, Magritte and L.A. events is none too shabby. Thanks to GKIDS, North Amer­i­can au­di­ences got to en­joy this ac­claimed film in the­aters, and now’s your chance to bring the heart­warm­ing an­i­mal ad­ven­ture home.

Di­rected by Stephane Au­bier, Vin­cent Patar (the duo be­hind A Town Called Panic) and first timer Ben­jamin Ren­ner, the film cen­ters on a young mouse who wants to be an artist, and the down-on-his luck bear mu­si­cian who spares her — and how the rest of the world deals with their un­usual friend­ship. In ad­di­tion to the beau­ti­ful an­i­ma­tion from La Parti Pro­duc­tions and Les Armateurs and the phenom­e­nal English dub cast (For­est Whi­taker, Macken­zie Foy, Lauren Ba­call, Paul Gia­matti, Wil­liam H. Macy, Me­gan Mul­lally, Nick Of­fer­man, Jef­frey Wright), the twodisc Blu-ray/ DVD combo pack also boasts a tres magnifique 50-minute mak­ing-of fea­turette. [Re­lease date: June 17]
