One of the Best Animated Films You've Never Seen Is Getting Two Short Sequels

Illustration for article titled One of the Best Animated Films Youve Never Seen Is Getting Two Short Sequels

Back in 2009, a vibrant, hilarious French animated film called A Town Called Panic was released. Ninety-nine percent of us didn’t see it. The few that did, though, fell in love with its simple, brilliant aesthetic and funny, eccentric toy characters. Now, seven years later, two short sequels are coming to theaters.


They’re called Christmas Panic and Back to School Panic. GKids will release them in limited theaters September 24, and here’s a quick trailer.

You can find out more information about the release, including theaters, at this link.


And if you’re intrigued, I highly recommend searching out A Town Called Panic. You’ll never forget it.
