Ernest & Celestine is based off a children’s book, which is unsurprising because the traditional animation style is evokative of the pages many of us grew up with, even if the story isn’t exactly familiar. In the film, a bear and a mouse strike up an unlikely friendship.
What’s most exciting is that the movie comes from A Town Called Panic filmmakers Stephane Aubier and Vincent Patar alongside A Mouse’s Tale director Benjamin Renner. Or at least that’s what used to be most exciting. That’s been replaced by a trailer that makes the movie look absolutely spectacular.
