Go old school with this trailer for ERNEST & CELISTINE

There’s a certain charm to hand-drawn animated films, that computer-generated kids films will never truly capture. That long process of individually animating characters and scenarios may be less attractive to big name studios looking to capitalise on the 3D effect with a gimmicky CGI experience, but the style is always striking. Ernest and Celine is one such film with retro workmanship and charm, and it’s coming out soon.

In France. Dammit!

Based on the books and their illustrations by Gabrielle Vincent, Ernest and Celestine tells the tale of the unlikely friendship between a bear and mouse. And maybe something more.

Come on people, I failed French class when I couldn’t remember the phrase for a grilled cheese omelette. So ignore the dialogue, and immerse yourself in the lively, wonderful animation instead, and keep an eye out for Ernest and Celestine to arrive on DVD shelves sometime, next year presumably.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
