Oscar Nominee: Best Animated Feature


A film from director Dean Fleischer-Camp and starring Jenny Slate, Isabella Rossellini, and Lesley Stahl, MARCEL THE SHELL WITH SHOES ON brings beloved character Marcel to his big-screen debut in this hilarious and heartwarming tale rated a note-perfect 100% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. An Official Selection of the Telluride and SXSW Film Festivals, this "charming, hilarious adventure" (Slash Film) follows an adorable one-inch-tall shell who ekes out a colorful existence with his grandmother Connie and their pet lint, Alan. Once part of a sprawling community of shells, they now live alone as the sole survivors of a mysterious tragedy. But when a documentary filmmaker discovers them amongst the clutter of his Airbnb, the short film he posts online brings Marcel millions of passionate fans, as well as unprecedented dangers and a new hope at finding his long-lost family. "Heartfelt and wonderful," raves TheWrap, "the cinematic equivalent of a hug."
