Tonight I had another long conversation with GKIDS’ Director of Distribution, Dave Jesteadt. During which, he talked openly about the creative vision of ‘Kells’ and how Director Tomm Moore came up with his now signature animation style. While Moore and his company Cartoon Saloon aren’t, by any means, limited to one style of animation, they did decide for their next film, to continue with a 2D, heavily geometric aesthetic.

Another common theme with “Kells” and Moore’s new film, “Song of the Sea”: It is another mythical tale based upon Irish folklore. This time, instead of the Book of Kells, “Song of the Sea” centers around the last young selkie’s, journey home. According to Irish legend, selkies are part human, part seal sea creatures.

For a little taste of “Song of the Sea” check out the teaser trailer below. Note the strong stylistic similarities the trailer’s look and the look of “Kells.”
