Long Way North to be Released on September 30

Thanks to Shout! Factory Films, the Annecy Audience Award-winning animated feature Long Way North will be hitting the U.S. theaters on September 30. The movie, which also bagged the Grand Prize and Governor of Tokyo Award at 2016’s Tokyo Animation Festival will premiere in New York, Los Angeles and other select major markets, including additional cities.

Long Way North is directed by filmmaker and animator Rémi Chayé and is a co-production of Maybe Movies, Sacrebleu Production, France 3 Cinema, Norlum Studios and 2 Minutes. The 2D, PG-rated animated feature is about a young heroine on a difficult journey to find her grandfather.

It is set in late 19th century Saint Petersburg and centers on a young girl named Sacha, from the Russian aristocracy. Sacha is fascinated by the daring life of her grandfather named Oloukine, a famous arctic explorer and scientist who has gone missing on his newest voyage to the North Pole. Wanting to go to the Great North and not caring about the plans of her parents to marry her off, Sacha steals from home in order to launch her own mission to search for her grandfather and his lost ship.

The voice cast (English) features Vivienne Vermes, Chloe Dunn, Antony Hickling, Peter Hudson, Geoffrey Greenhill, Tom Perkins, Bibi Jacob, Clair Harrison-Bullett, Martin Lewis, Leslie Clark, Tom Morton, Damian Corcoran and Kester Lovelace.
