Mia and the Migoo

Ani­ma­tion spe­cial­ist GKIDS announced Tues­day the English-language voice cast for its award-winning ani­mated fea­ture Mia and the Migoo by French direc­tor Jacques-Rémy Girerd.

The new English-language ver­sion is pro­duced by United States dis­trib­u­tor GKIDS and Matthew Modine, and fea­tures John DiMag­gio, Whoopi Gold­berg, Matthew Modine, Wal­lace Shawn and James Woods. It intro­duces Amanda Mis­quez as Mia.

The film opens the­atri­cally for an exclu­sive engage­ment at New York’s IFC Cen­ter on Fri­day, March 25, with its national bow set for Earth Day, April 22, in part­ner­ship with Earth Day Network.

Orig­i­nally released as Mia et le Migou in 2008, the French-Italian co-production is the sec­ond fea­ture by Gir­erd, founder of famed French ani­ma­tion stu­dio Folim­age and recip­i­ent of France’s Ordre national du Mérite (National Order of Merit), one of the nation’s high­est hon­ors. The film was named Best Ani­mated Fea­ture at the Euro­pean Film Awards in Decem­ber 2009 and is being released the­atri­cally in the U.S. by GKIDS with the sup­port of MEDIA International.

Cre­ated from 500,000 hand-painted frames of ani­ma­tion, Mia and the Migoo is a fam­ily adven­ture that pits plucky, wild-haired young hero­ine Mia against profit-hungry devel­op­ers, with the future of life on Earth in the bal­ance. One night, Mia has a pre­mo­ni­tion. So, after say­ing a few words of part­ing at her mother’s grave, she sets out on a jour­ney across moun­tains and jun­gles in search of her father, who has been trapped in a land­slide at a disaster-plagued con­struc­tion site on a remote trop­i­cal lake.
