Next month Mediumrare Entertainment will unearth the ‘life affirming’ experience Marcel The Shell With Shoes On, set for release on DVD and Blu-ray.

The BAFTA and Oscar-nominated film, directed by Dean Fleischer Camp, is the story of a plucky seashell called Marcel and his attempt to reunite with his family. Based on the award-winning 2010 short film that went viral online, Jenny Slate (Everything Everywhere All At Once) reprises her role as the voice of Marcel.

The voice cast includes Isabella Rossellini, Rosa Salazar, Thomas Mann, and Lesley Stahl.

I watched the film for it’s cinema releases and I described ‘Marcel The Shell With Shoes On is a film designed for the social media generation. It’s quirky, funny at times, overloaded with charm and emotion‘. You can my full review via link below trailer…

When struggling filmmaker Dean (writer-director Dean Fleischer Camp) moves into an Airbnb, he quickly discovers that he is not alone. Marcel (Jenny Slate), an adorable one-inch-tall shell, already lives there with his grandmother Connie (Isabella Rossellini) and their pet lint, Alan. Once part of a sprawling community of shells, Marcel and Connie live alone as the sole survivors of a mysterious tragedy. Taken with his unlikely new friend, Dean starts filming Marcel and his grandmother, igniting a meteoric rise to internet fame that changes their lives forever. But will Marcel’s new found sense of possibility and a throng of superfans be enough to track down his long-lost family?

Soulful, whimsical and intricately crafted, MARCEL THE SHELL WITH SHOES ON is the feature adaptation of Dean Fleischer Camp and Jenny Slate’s popular series of short films and New York Times-bestselling books, and marks the big screen debut of the internet’s most beloved mollusc.

Marcel The Shell With Shoes On will be released on Blu-ray and DVD from 26th June.
