US release date: August 25, 2017

Following its European debut, US audiences are dancing on air for the chance to experience ‘Leap’ for themselves. In this French-Canadian animated feature, Félice is in the spotlight, carrying the message of fulfilling dreams, friendship and hard work in every step. Félice dreams of dancing with the Opera Ballet School in Paris but as a young orphan, she must assume the identity of another student to do so. Following a series of inevitable conflicts, Félice earns the opportunity to perform on the Parisian stage.

French born co-directors, Eric Summer and Éric Warin first met in Montreal where they learned they could draw from Warin’s graphic design conception and Summer’s experience creating documentary series and other films. In the US version of LEAP! Elle Fanning stars alongside the voices of real-life dancer, Maddie Ziegler as well as Nat Wolff, Kate McKinnon, and Mel Brooks. Blending 19th century Paris with a modern twirl, audiences can get excited for new tunes by pop stars, Carly Rae Jepsen and Demi Lovato as well!

“Nineteenth-century Paris is handsomely captured in pleasing sun-dappled computer-animation. And the message of fortitude and resilience is undercut with humour” -Wendy Ide, The Gaurdian
