April and the Extraordinary World

PG Mild fantasy themes and animated violence Scroll to content

Paris, 1941. A family of scientists is on the brink of discovering a powerful invincibility serum when all of a sudden; the parents are mysteriously abducted, leaving their young daughter, April, behind. Ten years later, April is living alone with her precious cat, Darwin, continuing her family’s research. But soon, she finds herself at the centre of a bizarre conspiracy. Along with Darwin and her trusted friend, Julius, April embarks on an adventure to find her parents and discover the truth behind their disappearance.

"Here, within a thrilling tale that respects the intelligence of its audience, attentive parents will find the antidote to their fear that watching cartoons might rot your brain. If anything, April and the Extraordinary World seems bound to do the opposite, encouraging children to pursue their own passions and creativity."  Peter Debruge, Variety
