The coolest animation news to come out of the Cannes Film Festival was the in-progress preview of Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet, an animated adaptation of the famous book of poetry produced as a passion project by actress Salma Hayek.

Now, Variety Latino has posted an extensive gallery of images from the film, which will feature several chapters animated by different directors. Overseeing the entire film is Roger Allers, best-known as one of the directors on Disney’s The Lion King.

Here is a peek at those images:

    Looks absolutely fantastic, to be honest. The animators involved are some of the best in the business, and I was completely sold on it the second I heard Tomm Moore was involved. His debut in Secret of Kells was mind-blowing, and it seems like he’s been getting even better since then.
