El Americano, one of our favorite indie features of the past year has released a trailer for its English-language version.
The story follows a young bird who heads to Hollywood in hopes of earning the help of the American TV superhero El Americano to save the family circus in Mexico.
Take a look:
A co-production between Animex, Olmos Productions and Phil Roman Entertainment, El Americano features the voices of Modern Family’s Rico Rodriguez as Cuco, as well as Cheech Marin, Kate del Castillo, Paul Rodriguez, Edward James Olmos, Erik Estrada and Lisa Kudrow. Arnaiz wrote the story with Dulce Belchez and Fernando Lewels, with the screenplay by Arnaiz, Roman and SpongeBob SquarePants veteran Richard Pursel. Arnaiz and Disney animator and comic-book creator Mike Kunkel directed.
No U.S. distributor has been set, but the film is eyeing an August release.
