Snowtime sequel Racetime gets first trailer


2015’s Snowtime! / La Guerre des tuques 3D is getting a sequel. Set to be released in French Canada on December 7th, Racetime / La Course Des Tuques has received its first French-language trailer, courtesy of Les Films Seville:

Frankie and his team, with Sophie as the sled driver take on a new rising star in the village, the mysterious Zac and his athletic cousin Charlie. The fantastic sled designed and built by Frankie specifically for the race, falls apart before crossing the finish line. It is a bitter loss for Frankie who cannot accept that he might have made a few mistakes in his sled design or its construction or his race strategy. Together with his friends, he proves that Zac cheated in order to assure his own victory. Frankie demands a rematch; which Zac accepts on condition that Frankie build an entirely new race track in an impossibly short time frame.

Racetime / La Course Des Tuques is produced by Carpediem Film & TV, with animation services by Singing Frog Studio. The film is directed by Benoit Godbout with François Brisson serving as co-director and Snowtime’s Jean-François Pouliot on-board as a consulting director. Paul Risacher, Claude Landry and Maxime Landry wrote the movie’s script.

For the French language version, Hélène Bourgeois Leclerc, Sophie Cadieux, Mariloup Wolfe, Anne Casabonne, Gildor Roy, Catherine Trudeau, Nicholas Savard L’Herbier and Sébastien Reding are reprising their roles from the first film. Ludivine Reding and Mehdi Bousaidan have been added to the cast. The film will feature a soundtrack with music from local artists Garou, Alex Nevsky, Ludovick Bourgeois and Alexe. An English version of Racetime is on the way, though release details have yet to shared. A teaser trailer was released in June.

Snowtime! itself is a remake of the beloved 1984 French Canadian live-action feature The Dog Who Stopped the War / La Guerre des tuques. The animated rendition became the highest grossing Canadian film in 2015. The English version starred Angela Gallupo Lucinda Davis, Sandra Oh and Ross Lynch. Shout! Factory released the film on home video in the United States on November 8, 2016. The franchise has also spawned a spinoff television series, Snow Snaps / Les Mini-Tuques which began airing on Treehouse and Télétoon in Canada last month.
