GKIDS to Distribute Song of the Sea


GKIDS has recently announced that they have entered into a distribution deal with Ireland’s Cartoon Saloon for the North American distribution rights to the upcoming animated film Song of the Sea. The 2D animated film is the second feature film from Oscar-nominated director Tomm Moore (The Secret of Kells).

Song of the Sea focuses on the story of Ben and his little sister Saoirse, who is the last Seal-Child, as they go on a fantastic journey across a fading world of ancient legend and magic in an attempt to return to their home by the sea.

Director Tomm Moore said, “I am delighted to be working again with GKIDS after our successful partnership on The Secret of Kells. The two companies are perfectly aligned in their vision for animated filmmaking and GKIDS’ special focus and experience make them ideal partners to bring our next feature film to North American audiences.”

GKIDS founder and president, Eric Beckman said, “We are absolutely thrilled to renew our collaboration with Cartoon Saloon for Song of the Sea. Tomm brings an unprecedented level of artistry and passion to his filmmaking and he and the team at Cartoon Saloon have created something truly incredible with this film. US audiences have a very, very special treat in store for them.”
