Song of the Sea Gets It's First Real Trailer!

The official poster, not yet properly released but on display in the offices at Cartoon Saloon
We've been looking at the conceptual trailer for this selkie movie a couple of years now (at least) but a real, honest-to-goodness teaser trailer means one very important thing: it's almost here! And boy is it GORGEOUS!

The teaser is only a minute but it's so beautiful and artful. Take a look:
Here's the description if you missed it before:
SONG OF THE SEA tells the story of Ben and his little sister Saoirse -- the last Seal-child -- who embark on a fantastic journey across a fading world of ancient legend and magic in an attempt to return to their home by the sea. The film takes inspiration from the mythological Selkies of Irish folklore, who live as seals in the sea but become humans on land. SONG OF THE SEA features the voices of Brendan Gleeson, Fionnula Flanagan, David Rawle, Lisa Hannigan, Pat Shortt, Jon Kenny, Lucy O'Connell, Liam Hourican and Kevin Swierszsz. Music is by composer Bruno Coulais and Irish band Kíla, both of whom previously collaborated on The Secret of Kells.
No word yet on how GKids will be distributing this in the US - how widely or when - but it's hpappening and it'll be showing in theaters before the end of the year (in some places). Images are also starting to be released internationally as it's being picked up around the world for distribution. When I see dates, I'll let you know.

In the meantime, have some eye candy:


  1. If you have seen The Secret of Kells then you know why this new trailer is so exciting - art is very beautiful.

    1. We are HUGE 'Secret of Kells' fans here and have been looking forward to Song of the Sea ever since it was first announced. :) Love that you have a nice version of the 'coming soon' poster! Thank you for sharing.
