Animation company Studio Ghibli, French animation company Wild Bunch and Dutch animator-director Michael Dudok de Wit teamed up to create a silent animated film called “The Red Turtle.” To the delight of fans, the movie’s trailer was released on Thursday.

The trailer features a man swimming under the sea near a deserted island. He was shipwrecked on an island inhabited by liberated turtles and species. He eventually met a stranded woman and had a son with her, who was exposed to the simplicity of life in the tropical island. A tsunami wiped out their home and the family strove to heal from the fatal calamity.

The film made its debut at the Cannes Film Festival in May this year and won the Special Jury Prize at the Un Certain Regard section of the festival. According to Anime News Network, de Wit is currently residing in Tokyo to coordinate with the film’s Japanese animators.

The film is slated to open in Japanese theaters on Sept. 17 with the title”Red Turtle – Aru Shima no Monogatari” (Red Turtle – A Certain Island’s Story) and Sony Pictures will release the film on Jan. 20 next year.  Gianna Francesca Catolico
