'Toy Story 4,' 'Spongebob’s Big Birthday Blowout' to Show at Annecy Animation Festival
This year's Annecy Intl. Animation Festival will bring out some heavy hitters, including Pixar's highly-anticipated "Toy Story 4."
The festival will also showcase Nickelodeon’s “Spongebob’s Big Birthday Blowout" and give sneak peeks at Netflix’s “Klaus” and Warner Animation Group’s “Scoob."
The festival will open, as already announced, with the world premieres of an episode from"Looney Tunes Cartoons" and “Playmobil: The Movie,” the biggest French production of 2019. There will also be a first screening of the DreamWorks Animation short “Marooned.
Annecy runs from June 10-15 in a picturesque lakeside town in the French Alps. The festival has been growing thanks to a surge in animation projects, especially from Asia. Four of Annecy’s eight main competition features this year are from Asia.
