Keep an Eye Out Some Euro-Animation With Shout! Factory's Release of A MONSTER IN PARIS
Good news international animation fans. Bibo Bergeron's critically acclaimed, Luc Besson produced A MONSTER IN PARIS, a beauty and the beast story set in 1910 Paris, is getting a North American home video release. English-language voice cast includes French singing sensation Vanessa Paradis, singer/song writer Sean Lennon, Catherine O’Hara (Penelope), Adam Goldberg (A Beautiful Mind), Bob Balaban (For Your Consideration), Danny Huston (Hitchcock) and Jay Harrington (Private Practice).
Shout! Factory, in collaboration with EuropaCorp, unleash A MONSTER IN PARIS on DVD and on two-disc Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack on April 16th, 2013.
A wacky inventor, his camera-crazy best friend and a madcap monkey make a massive mistake when let loose in a mad scientist’s laboratory. With lotions and potions spilling everywhere, the troublesome trio accidentally creates Franc, the product of a reaction between a common flea and one of the scientist’s mystery concoctions. What they fail to realize, however, is that this ‘monster’ is actually a soft-centered soul with an astounding talent for music.
With the help of an enchanting nightclub singer Lucille, Franc becomes the talk of the town, just as stories of Paris’s newest monster attract the attention of the egotistical police commissioner, hell bent on securing a big prize to help his battle to become mayor. The unwitting scientists and the singer must team up to protect Franc, a monster with more than a musical career to protect!
