NEW STILL DEBUTS OUT OF THE ANNECY INTERNATIONAL ANIMATED FILM FESTIVAL FOR NETFLIX’S FIRST ANIMATED FILM KLAUS
Jesper (voiced by Jason Schwartzman) in Sergio Pablos’ KLAUS, coming this holiday season.
A young, Scandinavian postman named Jesper gets the chance to make his mark when he’s tasked with bringing the postal service to a contentious village in the cold north, where he meets a mysterious, white-bearded toymaker named Klaus.
Klaus is Netflix’s first original animated film.
The movie is a passion project for Despicable Me co-creator Sergio Pablos, who first came up with the idea for it in 2010.
Klaus was produced entirely in Madrid, Spain with a very international crew comprised of some of the most talented hand drawn artists from all over the world.
The film introduces a unique animation style which blends traditional hand drawn animation techniques with cutting edge technology.
