For this month’s home entertainment giveaway, we are pleased to present European toon lovers the chance to win a copy of La Parti Prods. / Les Armateurs’ Ernest & Celestine. We have five copies of the Blu-ray/DVD set courtesy of North American rights holder GKIDS and New Video Group (available June 17, SRP $34.99) for our lucky winners.
Adapted from the charming children’s book by Daniel Pennac, the film centers on a young mouse who wants to be an artist, and the down-on-his-luck bear musician spares her — and how the rest of their animal world deals with their unusual friendship. A Town Called Panic directing duo Stephane Aubier and Vincent Patar helmed the 2D feature with first time director Benjamin Renner. The English voice cast is stellar, starring Forest Whitaker, Mackenzie Foy, Lauren Bacall, Paul Giamatti, William H. Macy, Megan Mullally, Nick Offerman and Jeffrey Wright. In addition to the Oscar-nominated film, the combo pack includes an intriguing 50-minute making-of featurette.
