Kirby Atkins' animated feature is being produced. I found out about this from a 2015 Variety article. It's a coproduction between Huhu Studios and China Film Animation. I've been excited about this ever since I saw the trailer. It was reported in a Variety article but word has yet to reach Cartoon Brew. Here's the Variety article and the trailer.Beast of Burden Trailer from Huhu Studios on Vimeo.
I know this movie won't be obscure for long, but I have to blog about something after GKIDS brought otherwise obscure movies to a mass audience.
