French indie studio TeamTO will be attending the upcoming Cartoon Forum and MIPCOM marketplaces with their latest project in tow, titled Joe Giant. The CG animated film is developed by TeamTO with Disney Channels EMA Original Programming, with an eye towards targeting the 8 to 12 year old demographic.
Created by Alexander Bar (Mike the Knight) and directed by Arthur Qwak (Dragon Hunters), Joe Giant follows 14 year old Joe Garrison as he discovers that he has descended from a long line of giants, who not only have large statures, superior speed, and strength, but also have the impressive ability to control the four base elements, namely earth, wind, water, and fire. The problem is that Joe isn’t exactly experienced at controlling these powers, at first.
Joe Giant will be presented at Cartoon Forum September 17-20, and MIPCOM October 7-10, 2013.
