Sylvain Chomet's "The Illusionist"

"The Illusionist" from a script by Jacques Tati , directed by Sylvain Chomet ("The Triplettes of Belleville")

The film is near completion (post-production) . Pathe is releasing in Europe, but no word on a U.S. release yet.

The film is about “a dying breed of stage entertainer whose thunder is being stolen by emerging rock stars. Forced to accept increasingly obscure assignments in fringe theaters, garden parties and bars, he meets a young fan who changes his life forever.”

Sounds like an interesting story and the images look great. I hope it gets a US release.

Gorgeous stills... It's kept our Scottish animators busy for the past wee while! Can't wait to see it.

whell, can't think of one actual scottish animator on this project.
Crew was mostly international. But trust me the movie looks amazing!
