TORONTO -- In a year big on animated films, the Sprockets Toronto International Film Festival for Children on Tuesday said that the North American premiere of The Reef, a 3D movie voiced by Freddie Prinze Jr. and Rob Schneider, will open its 10th edition on April 13.

The U.S.-South Korean film from directors Howard E. Baker, John Fox and Kyeong-ho Lee portrays an orphaned fish who is transplanted to an exotic reef to live with an eccentric aunt after getting caught in a fishing net in Boston harbor.

Also lending their voices to The Reef are Evan Rachel Wood, Fran Drescher and Donal Logue.

In all, Sprockets will screen 43 animated films from a total lineup of 98 films -- 39 features and 59 shorts.

These include closing night film The Ugly Duckling and Me, an Ireland/Denmark/France/Germany co-production by Michael Hegner and Karsten Kiilerich; French animator Michel Ocelot's Azur and Asmar; Janis Cimermanis' The Three Musketeers from Denmark; and Khan Kluay, another 3D-animated movie from Thailand's Kompin Komgunmird.
