Gebeka Films has released a trailer for French animated film Dofus – Livre 1: Julith, arriving in local cinemas February 3. The 2D animation features colorful characters, dramatic landscapes, lots of cartoony action and intensely magical effects.
Produced by transmedia studio Ankama Group and directed by the creators of the popular Wakfu series, Anthony Roux and Jean-Jacques Denis, the film follows Joris, a happy youngster living the majestic city of Bonta with his adoptive father, Kerubim. His easy-going life changes when he disobeys his father and sets out to meet his idol: “Gobbowl” megastar Khan Karkass — meanwhile, the witch Julith returns with a plot to take revenge and destroy Bonta. It’s up to Joris and his friends to save the city from her wicked magic.
Dofus began as a Flash-based MMORPG from Ankama Games, first released in France in 2004. The game received mainly positive reviews and won several awards, and was turned into an animated series for France 3 in 2013, Dofus: The Treasures of Kerubim. The film’s official site is available in French only at this time, www.dofus-le-film.com/fr.
