Independent distributor GKids is bringing Jacques-Remy Girerd’s animated feature film Mia and the Migoo to theaters in the United States, with an all-star voice cast lined up for an English-language dub.

Doing the English dub are actors John DiMaggio, Whoopi Goldberg, Matthew Modine, Wallace Shawn, James Woods and Amanda Misquez as Mia.

The film, which won the Best Animated Feature award at the European Film Awards in 2009, is a hand-painted tale that pits a young girl against a profit-hungry developer.

Mia and the Migoo will open March 25 for an exclusive one-week engagement at the IFC Center in New York. The film opens nationwide on April 22 — Earth Day — in partnership with Earth Day Network. All theatrical proceeds from the film’s opening weekend will support Earth Day Network’s Canopy Project, a worldwide tree-planting initiative. GKids is distributing the film with support from Media International.

Here’s a trailer for the film (in French):

GKids also has released several new photos from Mia and the Migoo, which we present below for your viewing pleasure.
