U.S. trailer for the animated adventure Leap!

2 January 2017 8:30 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A Us trailer has arrived online for the upcoming animated adventure Leap! (titled Ballerina in the UK). Directed by Eric Summer and Eric Warin, the film features the voice talents of Elle Fanning, Maddie Ziegler, Carly Rae Jepsen and Dane DeHaan; take a look below after the official synopsis…

Paris, 1884. An orphaned girl arrives in Paris from Brittany. Félicie Milliner is 11 and has no money but one big, passionate dream: to become a dancer. With nothing left to lose, Félicie takes a big risk: she ‘borrows’ a spoiled brats identity and enters the Opera Ballet School. But how long can she be someone else? Mentored by the tough and mysterious cleaner, Odette , Félicie learns that talent is not enough – it takes hard work to be better than her ruthless, conniving fellow students. That and friendship. Felicie’s inventive, exhausting and charismatic best friend Victor also has a dream: becoming a famous inventor. »
