Years and years ago, Dean Fleischer-Camp, Jenny Slate, and some of the most adorable stop motion animation we’ve seen since Chicken Run all came together to give the world the wondrous creation that is Marcel The Shell With Shoes On. No matter where you’re coming from, it was near impossible to resist Marcel’s innocent charm and perfectly twee persona.
All the way here, in 2022, Marcel still has kept his very genuine sweetness and hope and is embarking on a full length feature movie of an adventure. Fleischer-Camp and Slate reunited for the film and brought the likes of Isabella Rossellini, and 60 Minutes’ Lesley Stahl (to play herself). The cleverness of the documentary that has Dean following Marcel and his grandma (voiced by Isabella Rossellini) is irresistible and, despite the havoc of the world, had us heartily giggling (and subsequently very much excited to see this Marcel adventure).
Take a gander for yourself with the first official trailer for the Marcel The Shell With Shoes On movie here, then look for it in theaters on Jun. 24th.
