Brave Cat Trailer

“All animals deserve to go back home, no matter where they come from.” An in-production promo trailer has debuted online for a stop-motion animation film titled Brave Cat, the very first feature film made by the Chilean animation group called Punkrobot Studio. Punkrobot is already a renowned animation studio – they won Chile’s first Oscar in 2016 for the short film Bear Story (watch here) then went on to work for Lucasfilm making one of the Star Wars Visions: Vol. 2 shorts that debuted last year. Their new feature film follows Kona, a teenage forest cat who decides to face her fears and search for her missing mother, who was kidnapped by the circus dogs long ago. She’s joined by Colin, an abandoned guard dog puppy, and Bernard, a runaway old circus bear. Director Gabriel Osorio explains that this is “a successor to Bear Story in a way… while [that film] told a story from the point of view of someone exiled, Brave Cat tells the story of someone searching for their missing loved one.” It’s still in the works now with no release dates yet. This is a rousing trailer that highlights the lovely felt character design and charming animation that is Punkrobot’s signature.

Here’s the first trailer for Gabriel Osorio’s animated film Brave Cat, direct from Punkrobot’s YouTube:
