Starting June 12th GKIDS is having a North American virtual theatrical release of the animated feature Marona’s Fantastic Tale. It looks to be a very touching beautiful animated film along the lines of a Dogs Purpose but without all that unfortunate animal abuse. (Seriously? What were they thinking with that film?)
The poetic and touching film from director Anca Damian (Crulic – The Path to Beyond, The Call) follows an optimistic stray dog named Marona as she looks back on the human companions she has loved throughout her life. Delivered alongside dazzlingly colorful, sweeping designs produced in part by acclaimed artist Brecht Evens, Marona’s Fantastic Tale is a life-affirming tale told with the patient, boundless love of a dog, and reminds us that happiness is a small thing.
