Täglich einen Kurzen: „There’s a monster in my kitchen“ von Fabian Erlinghäuser und Tomm Moore

Sir Paul McCartney said:  „The world’s forests are truly irreplaceable. They’re home to Indigenous Peoples, amazing wildlife and are vital in our fight against the climate crisis. But, as Greenpeace’s ‘Monster’ animation so powerfully shows, these forests are being cleared at a shocking rate to farm more industrial meat and dairy. This is why reducing our meat is so important. But that alone isn’t enough. To solve this problem, we need supermarkets and fast food restaurants to clean up their supply chains and make the switch to less destructive, plant-based alternatives. Our forests – and all our futures – depend on it.“

‘There’s a monster in my kitchen’ – the true story behind the film

Fabian schrieb auf Facebook: „So excited to share this Greenpeace film I co-directed with Tomm Moore. Art direction by the wonderful Maria Mp Pareja, written by James Sellick, boarded by Iker Maidagan, narrated by Wagner Moura 🌎

Tomm schrieb auf Facebook: „I’m so proud of this film that I codirected with Fabian Erlinghauser and worked with the amazing team of Artists from Wolfwalkers on for three months this summer – amazingly everyone worked from Home , whether that was Switzerland , Kilkenny , France , Italy , Spain , the Canary Islands or elsewhere and it was a dream project with a dreamTeam about an extremely important cause ..“

Cartoon Saloon:


Jag-wah’s forest home is being burnt down to graze cattle and grow animal feed for meat. If we don’t act, more precious habitats will be ruined, Indigenous Peoples could lose their homes, and we’ll lose the fight against climate change. Monster, the sequel to Rang-Tan, a new short film from Greenpeace made with four-time Academy Award®, Golden Globe®, BAFTA and Emmy nominated animation studio Cartoon Saloon and independent creative agency Mother, to support our mission to end the role of industrial meat in deforestation and climate change, and to challenge the companies who are responsible.

There’s a monster in my kitchen and I don’t know what to do. It has wicked glowing eyes and a snake-like tail too. And claws so sharp and beastly they could tear a child in two. It ripped our chalkboard off the wall and knocked over our stew. And it growled at all the bones from our summer barbecue. Perhaps this beast is here to feast? But on what? Or on…who? There’s a monster in my kitchen and it’s filling me with fear! Oh, monster in the shadows, please, tell me why you’re here? There’s a monster in my forest and I don’t know what to do. It turned my home to ash to instead grow something new. Feed for chickens, pigs and cows to sell more meat to you. As our forests disappeared, their evil empire grew. They think they are unstoppable but we pray this isn’t true. The real cost of what they’re doing, if only the whole world knew. There’s a monster in my forest and it’s filling me with fear! It’s putting us all in danger, to warn you is why I’m here. Oh Jag-wah in my kitchen, now I do know what to do. We’ll eat more plants and veggies and we’ll swap meat for bean stew or barbecue tofu! I’ll assemble every warrior from here to Timbuktu. Oh, Jag-wah in our kitchen, now we do know what to do. We’ll stop these deadly monsters, so our planet can renew.

Raya and the Last Dragon | Official Teaser Trailer (Release: March 2021)

Restore peace. Find the last dragon. Watch the new trailer for Raya and the Last Dragon, in theaters March 2021.

Long ago, in the fantasy world of Kumandra, humans and dragons lived together in harmony. But when an evil force threatened the land, the dragons sacrificed themselves to save humanity. Now, 500 years later, that same evil has returned and it’s up to a lone warrior, Raya, to track down the legendary last dragon to restore the fractured land and its divided people. However, along her journey, she’ll learn that it’ll take more than a dragon to save the world—it’s going to take trust and teamwork as well. From directors Don Hall and Carlos López Estrada, co-directors Paul Briggs and John Ripa, producers Osnat Shurer and Peter Del Vecho, and featuring the voices of Kelly Marie Tran as Raya and Awkwafina as the last dragon Sisu, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Raya and the Last Dragon” opens in U.S. theaters on March 2021.

Jon M. Chu to Direct Lucasfilm’s “Willow” Series for Disney+ with Warwick Davis and Ron Howard Returning

BURBANK, Calif. (Oct. 20, 2020) – The magical world of George Lucas’ “Willow,” the epic fantasy adventure set in an age of swords, sorcery, myths and monsters, will be returning in a Disney+ series slated to begin production next year.

Jon M. Chu (“In The Heights,” “Crazy Rich Asians”) is set to direct the pilot, and will serve as executive producer along with showrunners Jonathan Kasdan (“Solo”) and Wendy Mericle (“Arrow”). Jonathan Kasdan wrote the pilot.

“Growing up in the ’80s, ‘Willow’ has had a profound effect on me,” says Chu. “The story of the bravest heroes in the least likely places allowed me, an Asian-American kid growing up in a Chinese restaurant looking to go to Hollywood, to believe in the power of our own will, determination and of course, inner magic. So the fact that I get to work with my heroes from Kathleen Kennedy to Ron Howard is bigger than a dream come-true. It’s a bucket-list moment for me. Jon Kasdan and Wendy Mericle have added such groundbreaking new characters and delightful surprises to this timeless story that I can’t wait for the world to come along on this epic journey with us.”

Chu directed the film adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical “In the Heights,” which will be released in June 2021. He will also direct and serve as executive producer for the pilot of ABC’s Medical Drama “Triage.”

Ron Howard, director of the original “Willow” film, returns as executive producer on the series with Bob Dolman, writer of the original film, serving as consulting producer.

“It’s creatively exciting to not only revisit the world and characters first conceived by George Lucas, Bob Dolman and myself but to see it take flight in such fresh, fun and cinematic ways through the imagination of Jon Kasdan and Team Willow,” says Howard. “This isn’t a nostalgic throw-back, it’s a creative lean-forward and it’s a blast to be a part of it all.”

The series, which is Lucasfilm’s first venture into non-Star Wars storytelling since 2015, takes place years after the events of the original “Willow” film. It introduces all-new characters to the enchanted realm of fairy queens and two-headed Eborsisk monsters, and welcomes back its namesake hero, Willow Ufgood, performed once again by the unmatchable Warwick Davis.

“So many fans have asked me over the years if Willow will make a return, and now I’m thrilled to tell them that he will indeed,” says Davis. “Many have told me they grew up with ‘Willow’ and that the film has influenced how they view heroism in our own world. If Willow Ufgood can represent the heroic potential in all of us, then he is a character I am extremely honored to reprise.”

“This is an exciting new era for storytelling at Lucasfilm,” says Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. “Jon Chu’s vision, coupled with the writing of Jon Kasdan and Wendy Mericle, is going to take Willow into new and exciting directions for the series. Reuniting Ron Howard and Warwick Davis in the world of ‘Willow’ is something that they’ve both wanted to do for some time, and I couldn’t be more proud of the incredible team we’ve put together to bring this series to Disney+.”

Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Jon M. Chu, Jonathan Kasdan, Wendy Mericle, Ron Howard and Imagine Television will serve as executive producers, with Roopesh Parekh and Hannah Friedman as co-executive producers. Additionally, Bob Dolman will serve as consulting producer with Julia Cooperman as producer.

The production plans to return to the dramatic and enchanted landscapes of Wales, where much of the original film was shot.

The nominated films will soon be submitted to the more than 3,800 EFA Members to elect the winner. The European Animated Feature Film 2020 will then be presented at the virtual 33rd European Film Awards Ceremony.

The 33rd European Film Awards will take place as a virtual ceremony without an audience, broadcast and streamed from the European Film Academy’s seat, Berlin, on Saturday, 12 December 2020. With deep regret but in full and mutual agreement, the European Film Academy (EFA), the Mayor of Reykjavik and the Icelandic Minister of Education, Science and Culture, decided to cancel the event in the Icelandic capital in December 2020, and are happy to announce that instead the 35th European Film Awards Ceremony will be presented in Reykjavik in December 2022. Following their usual rhythm, the 34th EFAs will take place in Berlin in 2021.

The decision acknowledges the deteriorating situation due to the COVID-19 pandemic in an increasing number of European countries, and in Iceland. The pandemic will affect all events usually taking place during the EFA Weekend. The European Film Academy and its in-house company EFA Productions are currently working on a new concept for an EFA Week of additional online-events to involve its partners and members, including the annual General Assembly.

The awarding procedures will remain the same, i.e. most awards are voted for directly by the over 3,800 EFA Members. Due to the pandemic, the nominations will also be announced online, on Tuesday, 10 November, in a livestream presented together with EFA’s longtime partners at the Seville European FiLm Festival in Spain.
