Tomm Moore, the director to The Secret of Kells, returns with his next animated feature entitled Song of the Sea. One of a good handful of directors still imbuing the constantly growing potential of 2D animation. Production for the film is still ongoing, but the teaser material alone pretty much sells itself.
Synopsis can be read as follows (via Cartoon Saloon):
The story of the last Seal Child’s journey home. After their mother’s disappearance, Ben and Saoirse are sent to live with Granny in the city. When they resolve to return to their home by the sea, their journey becomes a race against time as they are drawn into a world Ben knows only from his mother’s folktales. But this is no bedtime story; these fairy folk have been in our world far too long. It soon becomes clear to Ben that Saoirse is the key to their survival.
