The Breadwinner is the third feature film from Cartoon Saloon, the studio that produced Oscar nominees The Secret of Kells and Song of the Sea. It's also the first film from Cartoon Saloon not being directed by Tomm Moore, as Nora Twomey will be the sole director on this film (she was co-director on Kells). The first teaser trailer is just below.
Produced by Angelina Jolie and based on a children's novel by Deborah Ellis, The Breadwinner will tell the story of Parvana, a young girl living in Afghanistan who must dress as a boy to support her family.
It should be released this year, but no opening date has been confirmed so far.
