My Life as a Zucchini

GKIDS has announced that Will Forte, Nick Offerman, Ellen Page and Amy Sedaris will feature in the English-language voice cast for the Golden Globe-nominated stop-motion animated film My Life as a Zucchini.

Directed by Claude Barras, My Life as a Zucchini is the official Swiss submission for Best Foreign Language film at the Academy Awards, where it also remains in contention for Best Animated Film. The official synopsis reads:

After his mother’s sudden death, Zucchini is befriended by a police officer, Raymond, who accompanies him to his new foster home, filled with other orphans his age. At first he struggles to find his place in this at times strange and hostile environment.

But with Raymond’s help and his newfound friends, Zucchini eventually learns to trust and love, as he searches for a new family of his own. Brought to life through striking character designs and expressive stop-motion animation, the story soars with laughter, sorrow, and joy, and stands as a testament to the resilience of the human heart. Beginning with its debut at Cannes, the film has stirred up an overwhelming response on the festival circuit, taking home top jury and audience prizes at Annecy, Melbourne and Angoulême, as it prepares to melt hearts with its U.S. debut at Sundance.

My Life as a Zucchini is set to receive its English-language world premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival before opening in the states in February 2017, both in English and the original French language version.
