Munich, 10 May 2023. Germany’s Studio 100 Film is proud to present the official international trailer and will showcase 20 minutes of its forthcoming comedy adventure film “Giants of La Mancha” (previous working title: “Quixotes – The Heirs of La Mancha”) at this year’s Marche du Film, Cannes.
Available in Autumn 2023, “Giants of La Mancha” is a visually stunning and action-packed CGI spectacle set to captivate viewers of all ages. International sales are handled by Studio 100 Film.
Directed by Gonzalo Gutierrez and written by Carlos Kotkin (Rio 2), “Giants of La Mancha” is an extraordinary and adventurous journey for the whole family, following 11-year-old Alfonso, heir to Don Quixote, and his three imaginary rabbits, which are joined by Pancho and Victoria. With their power of friendship, they save their beloved hometown somewhere in La Mancha from a huge storm. They dream the impossible dream, overcome their fears, and use their imagination to find the real force behind the storm.
This epic adventure, produced by Germany’s Studio 100 Media and
M.A.R.K.13 COM with GF Films from Argentina, combines the creative power and visual styles of the best artists from both countries to meet the highest standards. “Giants of La Mancha” adorns itself with wonderful animation and an impressive, unique visual quality.
“Visual development is the part we enjoyed the most about the production process of this film, as we believe that’s where the magic of cinema resides; giving the audience the chance to discover universes that would otherwise be impossible. It’s literally magic”, said Director Gonzalo Gutierrez.
Thorsten Wegener, Head of Business Operations, Studio 100 Film, added “This film was a great challenge for everybody involved. As one of the largest productions for us so far, it’s taken us to a new level in terms of storytelling and production value.
