LOTTE AND MOONSTONE SECRET

In their last adventure, Klaus and his friends Fred and Ville took three stones from a secret temple. What they didn’t know is that the stones are the only way for the Moon Rabbits to get back home. While two of them, Tik and Rhiv, search for Klaus and the stones, Lotte and her uncle want to unlock the stones’ secrets. They have many adventures on their way to find Fred and Ville, during which they are followed by the two Moon Rabbits and Paul, the cat, who is also very interested in the mysterious stones.

Light, but not lightweight, charming but not silly, genuinely funny both in terms of visuals and dialogue, the ideas and situations stem from characters who are fully-formed in their own right. LOTTE AND THE MOONSTONE SECRET is a breath of animated fresh air.

The film is currently in production and will be ready for delivery in 2011.
