This year’s Annecy Festival will serve as host for the debut of the first ever big-screen feature for Xilam’s hilarious animated TV series Oggy and the Cockroaches. The feature is scheduled to screen in June at the Annecy Festival, followed by a release in French theaters on August 7.
Written and directed by series veteran Oliver Jean-Marie, Oggy and the Cockroaches: The Movie (Oggy et Les Cafards: Le Film) will follow the adventures of the titular blue cat Oggy and the trio of cockroaches that constantly torment him: Joey, Dee-Dee, and Marky (that’s right. They’re named after members of the famous punk band.) The 2D animated pic is exec produced by Xilam founder and exec producer Marc Du Pontavice (Shuriken School, Les Daltons, Lucky Luke.)
