Tomm Moore's ‘Song Of The Sea’ Preps For January Principal Production

'The Secret of Kells,’ director Tomm Moore is set to begin production on his second feature film ‘Song Of The Sea’ which begins on January.

Irish acting talent such as Brendan Gleeson, Fionnula Flanagan, Pat Shortt, Jon Kenny and David Rawle, and singer Lisa Hannigan, have all done voice over work on the animation.

The story of the last Seal Child's journey home. After their mother's disappearance, Ben and Saoirse are sent to live with Granny in the city. When they resolve to return to their home by the sea, their journey becomes a race against time as they are drawn into a world Ben knows only from his mother's folktales. But this is no bedtime story; these fairy folk have been in our world far too long. It soon becomes clear to Ben that Saoirse is the key to their survival.

Moore is currently sharing developments of the feature on a blog he has set up especially for the film.
Studio Canal will distribute ‘Song of the Sea’ in Ireland and the UK in 2014.
