With that superb staff and seven years in the working I’m definitely going to keep an eye on this.

Hopefully it will live up to hype it’s causing and to the effort invested all this time.

Staff + seven years = holy fuck. I have to watch this!

Wow, now this is very interesting indeed. The staff looks extremely impressive plus the numbers of years since the project started. The synopsis shows some interesting stuff and the illustration completes it. Too bad it will be premiered in 2012...

Sounds like a pretentious award winning movie.

I'll watch it.

Seems like something to keep your eye on, though the "heartwarming story for general audience"-trope is not really innovative.

Feb 15, 2011 7:47 AM by Alcoholicide

They worked on this for... seven whole years? O.O *faints* They know everything inside out already for sure @_@ I'll definitely watch this!
