A hand­i­capped young boy dis­cov­ers that his dif­fer­ences can be his great­est strengths when he’s mag­i­cally swept into a mysterious vor­tex by small crea­tures called Dreamos, who are fight­ing the evil forces of Darkos. Pro­duced by Ais­sam Bourak and Florent Mounier (Iqbal, Tale of a Fear­less Child, 1884: Yes­ter­day’s Fu­ture) and pro­duced by 2d3D An­i­ma­tions (France).

The Amaz­ing Mau­rice

Ulysses Film­pro­duk­tion (Ger­man) and Can­tilever Me­dia (Ire­land) are pro­duc­ing this CG-an­i­mated fea­tures based on Sir Terry Pratch­ett’s pop­u­lar Dis­c­world nov­els. A street­wise cat named Mau­rice finds a a stupid-look­ing kid who plays a pipe, and has his very own horde of rats – rats who are strangely ed­u­cated and lit­er­ate, so Mau­rice can no longer think of them as “lunch.” But things take a sin­is­ter turn when some­one be­gins to play a sin­is­ter tune. Di­rected by Toby Genkel (Yakari, A Stork’s Jour­ney) and Flo­rian Wester­mann, writ­ten by Terry Ros­sio (Shrek, Aladdin, Pi­rates of the Caribbean), with char­ac­ter de­signs by Carter Goodrich (Ratatouill­e, The Croods, Brave).

Even Mice Be­long in Heaven

Whizzy the Mouse and White­belly the Fox be­come good friends af­ter they die and meet in an­i­mal heaven. The plot thick­ens when they re­turn to Earth and are re­born into op­po­site roles in this charm­ing pic, which com­bines stop-mo­tion and CG an­i­ma­tion. Di­rected by Jan Bubeníček (The Pi­rate, The Nutcracker in 3D) & Denisa Grim­mová (Fim­farum: The Third Time Lucky). Pro­duced by Fresh Films (Czech Re­pub­lic), Cine­mart (Slo­vakia), Les Films du Cygne (France), An­i­moon (Poland).
