|Tomm Moore to unveil Song of the Sea at the Arcade Con 2012|
Produced by the Irish studio Cartoon Saloon, Song of the Sea tells 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. (synopsis via Cartoon Saloon)
The conceptual trailer below flirts heavily with Studio Ghibli material (think of Ponyo).
