One thing about a new day–you really never know where it will go, even if you know where it starts.
Marcel the Shell with Shoes On is walking on the blanket when he is unexpectedly launched high into the air. Tumbling through space, the bird’s-eye view offers our small friend not only a glimpse of the important things in life–his beloved Nana who sleeps in a fancy French bread, a stinky shoe, and a monstrous baby–but also a much bigger picture. Sometimes the most wonderful discoveries are the ones we least expect.
Jenny Slate, the voice of Marcel, is an alum of Saturday Night Live and plays Stella on HBO’s <i>Bored to Death</i>. Dean Fleischer-Camp is a writer, director, and animator whose work has screened at film festivals around the world. They live together in Brooklyn, New York.
