Hot on the heels of yesterday’s news of Henry Selick’s The Shadow King being at EFM, our friends over at Bleeding Cool have scored themselves the sales art and even uncovered the flick’s voice cast. Read on!
In The Shadow King Jaden Betts will star as Hap; Pamela Adlon as Richard; Brendan Gleeson as Darce; Jeffrey Tambor as Cuzzie Bell; and Catherine O’Hara as Miss Fern.
The Shadow King is written and directed by Selick. His team includes an impressive array of renowned artists such as Director of Photographer Peter Sorg (Frankenweenie, Coraline); Eric Leighton, Animation Director on Legend of the Guardians: The Owls Of Ga’hoole; Production Designer Lou Romano (The Incredibles); Editor Wyatt Jones (Immortals, Rango, TRON: Legacy, Zodiac); and composer Bruno Coulais (Coraline).
The Shadow King is a deliciously magical tale about nine-year-old New York orphan Hap, who hides his fantastically weird hands with long fingers from a cruel world. But when a living shadow girl teaches him to make amazing hand shadows that come to life, his hands become incredible weapons in a shadow war against a ravenous monster bent on killing Hap’s brother, Richard, and ultimately destroying New York.
